Aditi Rao Hydari is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s latest protege, along with Deepika Padukone, in Padmaavat. The actress played Mehrunisa in the master filmmaker’s film, alongside Ranveer Singh. At a recent event in Jaipur, Hydari spoke about her experience of working with Bhansali and said, “It’s been a childhood dream to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He’s one of those iconic directors whose vision just engulfs you and everybody who works with him — the actors and the technicians. You’re just so taken in by his vision and the way he works that when you’re working with him, you’re not literally thinking about anything else. He works in a very beautiful way where there’s just the world he creates — just that world, without any phones, or anything else.”
The Wazir actress also added, “Apart from the fact that he makes amazing films and tells beautiful stories, he also portrays women very beautifully and shows them as strong individuals. I really enjoy working with him. Mani Ratnam and him (Bhansali) are my favorite people and directors and I feel lucky to have worked with both of them.”
We’d love to see Hydari leading a Bhansali film, won’t you?
