Most actors yearn to work with the bigwigs of the film industry in their careers, but few get the opportunity to do so. Having done films as different as chalk and cheese like “London, Paris, New York”, “Bhoomi” and Padmaavat, actress Aditi Rao Hydari says versatility is very important for her.
Asked why she’s mostly done multi-starrer projects, Aditi said, “I have done a mix of different kinds of cinema. I have done films like London, Paris, New York or Murder 3 where it’s just about one person or two people or Bhoomi for that matter… I have done lots of those and I have also not shied away from films which are multi-starrers, because for me a film is all about the director and the team that makes a film and about the script and character I am playing.”
Aditi admits that the film pulled her out of her comfort zone. She had to learn a new language and perfect pronunciation. “I was certain about the fact that I wanted to perfect the language. I didn’t want people to say, ‘Oh, she didn’t know Tamil and still she wasn’t half-bad’.”
Aditi goes on to add that she wants to make an impact all over India. “I want to be a part of memorable cinema. Only a great director, a great writer, editor and DOP can make that happen. I will feel lucky if I become known as an actress across the country. India is a diverse country and films are about feelings, not about language. I don’t want language to limit me — whether it is in India, or abroad, I want to be able to push myself,” she concludes.
