While many actors are rushing to get any roles they can get, there are still actors in the industry who are extremely picky with their roles. One such actress is Aditi Rao Hydari. The actress has only appeared in a short role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat and the lead role in Daas Dev. Aditi has also started reaching out outside Bollywood and starred in multiple south films.
In an interview with IANS Aditi said, “More than often I am told that now I am focusing on my career in South and have left Mumbai. But I have not gone anywhere. Scripts and opportunities took me everywhere. Why should I say no to a film if the story is exciting? I think we are a generation of actor for whom the length of the role does not matter but substance does.”
"I look for something in which I am artistically challenged while trying out something new. For instance, look at my role in the film Padmaavat. When Sanjay (Leela Bhansali) sir called me, he told me that among all the four characters in the film, my role would be smallest. ‘But he promise you, the story will be incomplete without your character”, she added.
“Eventually, when I started receiving good words for the character of Mehrunisa, I was happy. For me, the impact of my character matters," she claimed.
Aditi will next star in the Hindi film called The Girl On A Train, starring Parineeti Chopra. She also has two Tamil and one Telugu film lined up for release.
