Bollywood actress Yami Gautam, who has recently joined the cast of BHoot Police alongside actors Arjun Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez, will be next seen playing a character that is fierce and endearing at the same time in ‘A Thursday’.
Directed by Behzad Khambata , Yami will be seen as Naina Jaiswal, a playschool teacher who, on a Thursday, takes hostage 16 toddlers in a school, that is all set for a release on a digital platform in 2021.
“‘A Thursday` is one of those rare scripts that come your way that you just cannot put down. Behzad has written one of the strongest characters for any female protagonist. Naina, who I will be essaying, is both fierce and endearing,” Yami said.
Khambata always had Yami in mind while writing the script. “I have never seen her portray an unhinged, pretty much crazy character. I was thrilled when she agreed to do this film. So now the excitement is brewing and can`t wait to be back on a film set,” he said about the actress.
Yami took to her Twitter account to make the announcement. She wrote, “More than the weekend, this time, waiting for #AThursday. @behzu @RSVPMovies @RonnieScrewvala #PremnathRajagopalan @bluemonkey_film @pashanjal #FridaysWithRSVP.”

Ronnie Screwvala, who had also produced the critically acclaimed “A Wednesday”, shared that his new film is one of “those brilliantly written thrillers that not only has you at the edge of your seat but also makes you question many things about society at the end of it”.
“Yami is a phenomenal actor and seeing her in a grey avatar will be interesting for the audiences. Behzad has done an outstanding job on the script and I’m backing his vision to bring this to life. This is part of our direct to digital movies for 2021,” he added.
