Aditi Rao Hydari: My Time Will Not Be Over Soon
“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,” said 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. 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,” she adds.
“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’,; but it’ll always be great cinema,” Aditi asserts.
