Bollywood actress Yami Gautam, who is currently busy shooting for Hrithik Roshan's "Kaabil," is said to have also bagged "Race 3." Despite the failure of "Junooniyat," Yami's kitty is filling with big projects.

"The producers have already been in talks with Yami and they are keen on having her on board. They are waiting for Yami's confirmation now," a source close to the actress told SpotboyE. However, producer Ramesh Taurani said, "I am still working on the script and the cast is yet to be decided."

If Yami has been finalised for the third instalment of "Race," then fans will be delighted as the franchise has featured leading actresses like Deepika Padukone, Bipasha Basua and Katrina Kaif in the past. Yami is already flying high after getting the opportunity to work with Hrithik in "Kaabil."

It had been reported earlier that many top actresses like Kareena Kapoor Khan and Parineeti Chopra had rejected the offer because of the female lead's screen timing in the flick. In "Kaabil," Yami's character will die before the interval.

Scheduled to be released on Jan. 26 next year, the film will be helmed by Sanjay Gupta and may feature Sasha Agha in a key role. In "Kaabil," the handsome hunk gets to play a visually-impaired man on the hunt for his girlfriend's rapists and murderers. Also, Yami, who plays Hrithik's character's girlfriend, will also essay the role of a visually-impaired person.

It had been reported that the makers of "Kaabil" signed Yami due to her pretty eyes as they wanted an actress with beautiful eyes to play a visually-impaired girl's character. As Yami has quite sharp features, her eyes sealed the deal for her. Fans are now eagerly waiting to see the fresh pair on the silver screen.
