Guwahati, March 2, 2020:

Bollywood diva Yami Gautam, who found herself in the crosshairs of the Assamese junta after "rejecting" the gamusa at the LGBI airport, seems to have redeemed herself after footage of the star donning the gamusa and the Assamese japi, has emerged on social media.

Gautam was reportedly left devastated after many media outlets carried the news of her "disrespecting" the Assamese gamusa and took to Twitter to express her concerns.

"This is my third visit to Assam.I have always expressed my love towards Assamese culture & people", in a bid to calm the storm that had erupted after her snub of the gamusa.

"It’s insensitive to react to a single-sided story & spread hate. I am present here, in this beautiful state for an important event & shall always keep coming back .Peace & Respect", she further wrote, wagging an accusatory finger at the people who were spreading hate messages against the star on social media.

Later in the night, Gautam posted a photo along with caption, "Had a great time flagging off ‘Great Guwahati Marathon’ -2020 ! Was so good to see so many smiling faces & hence could feel the love ! Thank you for this beautiful ‘Japi’ & ‘Gamosa’"

Gautam had come to Guwahati to participate in the ‘The Great Guwahati Marathon’ 2020, a charitable event to be held in Khanapara, Assam. The star was reportedly greeted with a ‘gamusa’ at the LGBI Airport in Guwahati. Footage shows a masked Gautam, who had arrived at the Airport, being greeted by a gamusa by “fan”. However, Gautam, who perhaps did not want to be recognized, shoved away the gamusa.
