Actress Aditi Rao Hydari says she feels thrilled to get support from the people in Bollywood as she has no backing in the film industry. The actress, who has got rave reviews for her role in hit film Padmaavat, spoke about her career in Vogue India’s May 2018 issue. The cover image of the issue has been shot on the OnePlus 6, which is said to be the first ever Indian magazine cover shot on a smartphone.

“I have no backing in the film industry. It is thrilling to be supported by people you love and respect. I just choose to keep doing my own thing, as long as I am not hurting anyone,” Aditi told IANS.
“If anyone wants to screw me over, it’s their problem,” she added.
For Hydari, it is all about the arts. “I love painting, music, colour and dance. Acting is an amalgamation of all art forms... You can be anybody or anything. It’s safe and secure, it’s comfort.”


Aditi is known for films like London, Paris, New York, Wazir and Bhoomi. She has also worked in the south Indian film industry, with projects like Prajapathi, Sringaram and Kaatru Veliyidai to her credit.
She was born in Hyderabad and grew up in Delhi. Her maternal grandmother has been her greatest inspiration.
“I dressed girly in kurtas, bindis and braids because I loved Bharatanatyam. But my nani would give me junk food, put me in shorts, let my ringlets free, and send me out in the mud to play.”


Her obsession with floral scents goes back to memories of her mother’s large collection of handloom saris that she wore with mismatched blouses. “When she would go for a shower, I would pick up her sari and wrap it around myself. She would come out and ask me to take something cleaner, prettier. But it smelled of her, of comfort and tea rose,” added the actress, who has worn a specific perfume for every role of hers, whether it is Leela in Kaatru Veliyidai or Mehrunissa in Padmaavat.


There may be a lot of scrutiny on what celebrities wear, but Aditi Rao Hydari says she is not bothered by what fashion police feels and wears clothes in which she is comfortable
“They (paparazzi) are doing their work. It is up to me how I take things. One can either spend time cribbing or being happy. I feel there is no point cribbing “There is lot of scrutiny on what we wear but it depends on how you look at it. I chose to look at it in a positive way as I have fans who like me the way I am,” Aditi told.


For the 30-year-old actress fashion is an extension of one's personality. “It’s (fashion) like being in a playground and you can have so much fun with it. There are two ways again either it (fashion) can burden you or you can enjoy it, you should have fun with it. I don’t know what's in or what's out I wear what I like and what I am comfortable wearing,” she added In real life the Wazir actress says she prefers to ditch makeup. “I am mostly no makeup person. But as an actor I rely on makeup. For me makeup is about quality. I keep it minimal. I I love mascara, nail paints, lipstick, kajal," she said “Beauty is about owning who you are. When you are happy you are beautiful. Happiest girls are the prettiest girls. It's true.”


Aditi, who has been appointed as a brand ambassador for beauty company Avon, says for her quality matters the most while associating with any product.
“For me everything overrides quality and that's what I look for in films as well as brands. You should be proud to be associated with it.”
