Aditi Rao Hydari – The fresh face of Bollywood. Although she has worked with directors like Maniratnam, Omung Kumar & Sanjay Leela Bhansali but it seems difficult for her to catch the eyes of public. But now the time has changed for her she got the major part in SLB’s Padmavati as Kamla Devi, the favourite begum of Alauddin Khilji.
She is very much thankful to Bachchan family for this, as she said:
Amitabh Bachchan has always spoken well of me, even though he doesn’t really have to, and so has Jayaji. Abhishek has also been sweet to me. I remember feeling lost at the premiere of Delhi 6 when Abhishek reached out and made me feel comfortable. Amitabhji also whispered to me ‘really great things are going to happen to you.’ I was thrilled and baffled when he said that because I had such a small part in the film! He and Jayaji have continued to support me since.
It also seems that Jaya Bachchan has recommended the her name to SLB for that part. Aditi said:
I am aware of that. Such gestures are not easy to forget. And one shouldn’t forget them.
