Aditi Rao Hydari on doing selective projects in Bollywood

Aditi has been a part of some amazing Hindi films. She made quite an impact as Mehrunisa in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat despite her shorter screen time. But Aditi is not often seen doing projects in Bollywood. What is the reason behind doing selective projects? Aditi said that she doesn't do that by choice. She expressed her wish to do a massy film like Pushpa but also revealed that no one has approached her with a script like that. 

Aditi said, "I think that's not by choice so much in terms of like why do I not pick so many different kinds of films is not always by choice. The thing is a certain kind of cinema comes to me which I said like the layered, vulnerable, quite often period or like a lot of people say 'heroine oriented' especially in the South what I have done. But I don't look at stories like that, I think stories are about being true to the story you are telling. I would love to do a Pusha but people have not come to me with a Pushpa. I am just saying that fun and commercial films where you are just dancing and having fun, those are also fun and that also takes skill as an actor to do. I would love to once in a while do something like that but I get more of this (period films)." 


She continued, "But in a way, I am happy I get more of this because there's so much content to bite into, explore and learn in many ways. A lot of incredible directors I sort of managed to work with a lot of people who have been on my wishlist and to repeatedly work with them for me is like hands on my head."

Work front

Aditi will be next seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heeramandi with Sonakshi Sinha, Manisha Koirala, Richa Chadha, and others. She also has Vikram Aditya Motwane's series Jubilee in the pipeline.
