Yami, who started her career with Chand Ke Paar Chalo on television, made a mark for herself with her role in Yeh Pyar Na Hoga Kam aired on Colors channel.
Later, she made her Bollywood debut with Vicky Donor and was appreciated for her performance in the film.
However, she shot to limelight when she became the face of the fairness cream. But Yami saw the other side of fame when the same ads made her the butt of jokes on Twitter.
Here are some of the cheeky one liners doing the rounds:
