From a musical-romantic drama Rockstar (2011), romantic comedy London, Paris, New York (2012), psychological thriller Murder 3 (2013) to a period drama Padmaavat (2017), Aditi Rao Hydari has worked across genres in Bollywood movies. In fact, since the past couple of years she has also been exploring opportunities down south and has managed to fetch work in interesting films like Sammohanam, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, Psycho among others.
About her journey, the actress had earlier told BT, “I’m finally doing things that I dreamt of. In these last few years, I’ve been lucky to work with some of the best directors, who offered me roles that have been challenging. The work has been tough, but fun. There are days when I forget which city I’m in, but I get excited when filmmakers I respect choose me to embody their vision in their films. I’m happy with the love and acceptance I get from all the industries, and I love being called a pan-India actor because that’s what I want to be.
Meanwhile, we ask her to pick a few genres of films that she loves and also looks forward to being a part of and she is quick to add, “I don’t like to make these boxes and tick them. If something excites me, I’ll do it. I like love stories the best, and period films even more! I also enjoy being a part of thrillers, mysteries and comedies, well, it all depends on the story and not the genre.”
