MUMBAI: Actor Aditi Rao Hydari, who will be seen in a prominent role in the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Wazir, said she is eager to do a dance-based film as she is trained in the craft.
“I am dying to do a film that is based on dance and one that will use my dance skills. I am a trained dancer,” she said. “Wazir is obviously not about dance but is a thriller-mystery. I would love to do a film that is about dance as I love to dance,” she added.
The actor, who was appreciated for her stint in Yeh Saali Zindagi, has already received appreciation for her elegant look in Wazir that also features Farhan Akhtar, Neil Nitin Mukesh and John Abraham.
But Aditi shared she doesn’t want to restrict herself when it comes to roles. “I don’t want to be stuck in a box as versatility is very important to me. I love to be challenged and for me, it’s all about creativity,” she said.
Apart from Wazir, Aditi has been roped in for two other projects in 2016, Sudhir Mishra’s Aur Devdas, where she will be seen playing the contemporary version of Chandramukhi, and Abhishek Kapoor’s Fitoor, where she plays a younger version of Tabu’s character Begum Hazrat.
On whether or not she’s happy with the kind of scripts she is getting these days, Aditi shared, “It’s always a task for me. I still struggle but they do come slowly and steadily. I don’t have anybody such as a producer or director from this industry or anybody backing me. When you are on your own, it’s a little harder. I take it positively though, but it’s a struggle.”
