On working during pregnancy

Yami said that she could write a thesis on working while pregnant.

Talking about performing her own action sequences, she said, "Most of the training and stunts were done (by the time I was pregnant). You want to be careful. It's surreal my baby was a part of this (film), it was always two of us putting in the hard work. I was also inspired by my mother; I've seen her work through pregnancy. We Indian women are stronger than we give ourselves credit for."
