South, Bollywood actress Aditi Rao Hydari has attracted innumerable accolades on the strength of her acting prowess. The actress has time and again proved that it is acting that brings every actor to notice. Despite getting some amazing work, Aditi feels her struggle is on.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Aditi Rao Hydari spoke on how she feels being underrated as an actor. “At times, it hurts to think that way (being called an underrated actor). Then one day, my mother (Vidya Rao, classical singer) explained that I should not take it to heart. Since then, I have started taking it as a reverse compliment. It’s good that people think I have much to give. I’m a lambi race ka ghoda… my time will not be over soon,” says Aditi.
“People who call the shots in the industry are not helping me make my career. So, you are sort of fumbling around to find your way,” she added.
Aditi Rao Hydari, who is known for her powerful acting performances, says “My intention has been clear, which is why in the last few years I’ve finally been doing the kind of work that I want to do and [working with] directors I want to work with. It’s just that the struggle is still there. To get the [kind of] work that I want, it takes patience.”
Aditi also spoke how she is dying to work with Vishal Bhardwaj, Anurag Basu, Anurag Kashyap, Ashwini Iyer Tiwari and with many such talented directors. “I feel like doing every film with Mani sir. I also want to work with Sanjay [Leela Bhasali] sir again. I am dying to work with Vishal Bhardwaj, Anurag Basu, Anurag Kashyap, Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, Vikramaditya Motwane, Shoojit Sircar, Zoya AKhtar, Shakun Batra… I feel great directors are artists; they keep creating great work. Sometimes it’ll make money, sometimes it won’t; but it’ll always be great cinema,” Aditi said.
On the work front, the actress has a good line-up of films this year. Well, interestingly, at the start of 2018, Aditi Rao Hydari confirmed that she is set to reunite with filmmaker Mani Ratnam for another Tamil film. Aditi last collaborated with Mani Ratnam in Kaatru Veliyidai last year.
Aditi recently made Tollywood debut in Sudheer Babu starrer Sammohanam. The film released last week and received amazing response
