Yami Gautam took to Instagram to share the first look of her character, Naina Jaiswal, from her upcoming direct-to-digital thriller, A Thursday. Yami, who will be essaying the role of a school teacher Naina in A Thursday, referred to the character as the ‘mastermind’. Along with the first look, Yami also shared a picture of herself with director Behzad Khambata. A Thursday, also starring Neha Dhupia, Dimple Kapadia, Atul Kulkarni and Maya Sarao in important roles, is based on unthinkable events taking place on a regular Thursday.

Yami shared her first look as Naina Jaiswal on Instagram, along with a candid shot of herself with director Behzad Khambata. The director-actor duo seems to be discussing a scene, set in a playschool, where Yami is sitting at what looks like a kids’ table with Lego pieces around her. Behzad, on the other hand, is reading to her from a piece of paper, as the two smile.

Along with the pictures, Yami wrote, “The Mastermind. Naina Jaiswal in #AThursday (sic).”

Behzad Khambata also shared the same two pictures on his Instagram handle.

Ronnie Screwvala’s production house, RSVP Movies, which is financing the film, also unveiled the much-awaited look of Yami Gautam.

Yami will be essaying the role of a simple school teacher, named Naina Jaiswal. Her look is kept very clean and pristine, in keeping with her character.

A Thursday revolves around the life of a playschool teacher, who takes 16 toddlers hostage. The audience can expect an edge-of-the-seat thriller like A Wednesday. Ronnie Screwvala, who produced A Wednesday, will also back this one.

About two weeks ago, Yami Gautam and Neha Dhupia started shooting for A Thursday. Sharing a picture of the clapboard from the film’s set, Yami wrote, “Breaking News: A series of unforgettable events are about to come your way, all that happened on #AThursday (sic).”

Neha shared the same picture and wrote, “A day that changed everything… #AThursday goes on floors. So Glad to be a part of this project. With big hug to this awesome team (sic).”
