Actress Yami Gautam says she can relate to her character in her forthcoming film "Total Siyapaa" because she has experienced the same situations in real life.
A cross-border love story, Yami is seen as Punjabi girl Asha who falls in love with a Pakistani, Aman, played Pakistani singer-actor Ali Zafar.
"I think in terms of situations and gravity of the problems, I am little closer to Asha," Yami said Sunday here while promoting her film.
She says there are days when you think "today everything will be perfect" as "I have planned everything. I will get the guy to meet my mom, will do this and that... will have everything under my control, but eventually everything happens just opposite."
"So, I have had these situations and I know how it feels at that time," added the actress who bowed in Bollywood with "Vicky Donor".
However, she feels unlike her, Asha is over-confident.
"Asha is a bit over-confident. You would have seen in the teaser that how cleverly she tells only half-truth to her mom that he is a Muslim. But she keeps the other part of the story hidden," Yami said.
