She has done five Hindi films so far and proved her versatility. Now, actor Aditi Rao Hydari has constructed a list of people with whom she wants to work — Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor feature on her wish list.
“I actually have a list of people that I want to work with and I am working towards it,” Aditi told IANS.
“I would like to work with Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor — it’s a long list because there are so many beautiful actors playing such interesting roles and that makes this place more interesting for girls like me to come and work here [Bollywood],” she added.
The 26-year-old actor made her Bollywood debut with a small role in Delhi-6, but with Yeh Saali Zindagi and London, Paris, New York she graduated to big roles.
She also featured in Ranbir-starrer hit musical Rockstar and her career seems to be moving in the right direction. Her next project is Boss with Akshay Kumar.
Talking about her choice of roles, she said: “I want to work in an epic love story — a piece of literature that is made into a film, as well as a dance film.”
What about item songs? “The fact they are called item numbers is a problem. Once you call it an item number, it immediately means something demeaning. It’s a way of dance,” she said.
Citing the example of Madhuri Dixit, she said “when she dances, it’s not an item number. She is just dancing... if a dancer dances, it looks like an exciting dance number, but if someone who doesn’t know how to dance is asked to do it, it’s going to be an item number”.
“I think a dance track is a wonderful track. We Indians have dance and music in our blood and that is what makes our films what they are — they are fun and there is nothing wrong with them... I would love to dance in a film,” she added.
