Bollywood star Aditi Rao Hydari—who is popular in Southern cinema courtesy her role in ‘Kaatru Veliyidai’—will soon be making her Tollywood debut. And, as expected, she is quite excited about the same. During a recent chat with a leading daily, the actress said that her first Telugu film has been penned by Indraganti Mohankrishna and features some strong female characters. She added that she was quite impressed by the storyline.
“I heard about how well Indraganti Mohankrishna sir narrates scripts, and pens substantial roles for his leading ladies. When he narrated the script to me, I was hooked. It is a sweet story and I am thrilled with his characterization,” she added.
Interestingly, Aditi—who was born Hyderabad– also revealed that she is looking forward to shooting in her own backyard. She added that she has memories associated with Hyderabad and used to visit the city as a kid.
“I was born here and my entire family is in Hyderabad. Although I have been to the city several times to visit my family and friends, I’ve never shot in the city yet. So you can imagine how excited I am to shoot in my own backyard. I wasn’t an actor yet when I debuted in Malayalam, I was still studying then. It was only after I moved to Mumbai in 2010 that I became an actor. So it’s been just seven years in showbiz, which is relatively new for the industry. I am still learning,” said Aditi.
Well, we wish her the very best for her Tollywood debut and hope that the film does well at the box office.
