You do not crib when you have a lot of work — this is one life-lesson actors should learn from Aditi Rao Hydari, one of the prettiest faces in Bollywood on Thursday, who is busy and extremely happy about it.
“I am happy I have a holiday, three days in a row, after a really long time, but I am already dying to get back to the sets. Three days is a break enough… I want to start working again,” gushes Aditi as we catch up with her on her Deepavali break.“Murder 3 is almost done and I’ve just started shooting for Boss or Naam Hai Boss with Akshay Kumar. I can’t say much about the film, just that I am not opposite Akshay, for that matter nobody has been cast opposite him,” Aditi continues. With two films in her kitty right now and several others in the pipeline, we ask Aditi how she plans on celebrating the last day of Deepavali.
“I have always been a traditional person when it comes to this festival. I like performing the required pujas and add in singing and dancing whenever I can. I switched on the shruti box earlier this morning and I suddenly realised how much I missed that sound. It reminded me of my childhood and growing up with so much art around me. You know, every Deepavali we used to plan elaborate dance sequences for the family and they were really exciting. Dance is still such a huge part of me — such an important part,” Aditi reminisces.
And working with Akshay, we continue… “Well, the man really impresses me. He is so disciplined. And being a dancer I respect and adore disciplined people. He’s so conscious off-camera, always quiet and thinking about his work and then when the camera comes on, you see a whole different side emerge, the performer comes out — it’s magical to watch him,” she answers.
Rounding up the interview we ask Aditi if she’s open to films from the South, considering she is from here and made her debut here too… “Of course, there are always talks that are happening and I am keen to work on projects from the South too. It’s just that, I do not like talking about a project till I have officially signed it. I am here to act and I take it as seriously as my dance — if good work comes my way, I shall take it up for sure,” Aditi concludes.
