Ac­tor Aditi Rao Hy­dari has worked in films which fea­ture her in the lead, but there have been films — such as Fi­toor (2016) — wherein she has had com­par­a­tively less screen time. The ac­tor says she isn’t ap­pre­hen­sive about tak­ing up short roles. “It shouldn’t mat­ter. I be­lieve that it’s the op­po­site to­day — ac­tors are not in­se­cure or scared.

great to do a lead role, but it’s more im­por­tant to be part of a good movie,” she says. Aditi was re­cently seen in San­jay Dutt’s come­back film, Bhoomi, in which she played the role of his daugh­ter. The ac­tor says she is happy with the praise her per­for­mance in the film has gar­nered. “I’m over­whelmed with the re­sponse our per­for­mances have got­ten so far. It was a lot of hard work, but it was a new space for me; it was some­thing I had never done be­fore. I even got to work with peo­ple I hadn’t worked with be­fore, and the set­ting was also un­fa­mil­iar in the sense that it was a film set in a small town.” She adds, “I have done dif­fer­ent kinds of movies. More than be­ing happy, I am re­lieved that they worked. Many peo­ple from the South have been tex­ting me — from jour­nal­ists to peo­ple who I least ex­pected to.”
