Actor Aditi Rao Hydari will be making her debut in Telugu cinema with Mohankrishna Indraganti’s Sammohanam and will be seen playing the love interest of Sudheer Babu in the film. The film is said to be rom-com and the shooting of the film began recently. Aditi, though born and raised in Hyderabad, has done films majorly in Bollywood and attaining stardom with her recent performances like Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat. Aditi says that she feels privileged to be making her debut with Mohankrishna Indraganti’s Sammohanam since all his films have strong female characterisations. “I’m really pleased with the way my career is shaping up. How many actresses get a chance to work with legends like Mani Ratnam and Sanjay Leela Bhansali? In fact, Mohan Krishna Indraganti liked my performance in Mani sir’s Kaatru Veliyidai (Cheliyaa in Telugu) and was keen on casting me in his next film. All of Mohan sir’s films have strong female characterisations. So it’s a privilege to be making my debut in Telugu with his film,” Aditi Rao Hydari told TOI in an interview.

Not many are aware that Aditi Rao Hydari made her acting debut with a Malayalam film titled Prajapathi in 2006 before venturing into Bollywood. Aditi even acted in a Tamil film titled Srinagaram in 2007 before making it big in Tamil with last years’ Mani Ratnam directorial Kaatru Veliyidai. “Good cinema has no regional or linguistic boundaries. I consider myself as a director’s actor, so I’m open to work with filmmakers from across the country and even abroad. No artiste wants to be boxed. We thrive on challenging roles and they can come from anywhere. I consider myself blessed to be recognised as a pan-Indian actor. Yes, it means more hard work, prepping more for the roles but I’m all for it,” Aditi Rao Hydari added further.

Speaking about her roots in Hyderabad, Aditi Rao Hydari says, “I was born in Hyderabad and did my schooling here but later shifted to Delhi. But all my relatives are here in Hyderabad; my grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins etc. I used to come here regularly in the holidays and have a wonderful time. I didn’t grow up speaking Telugu but I can understand the language. I now feel a sense of fulfilment at doing a Telugu film, it feels like a home coming of sorts.”
