The actress reflects on her childhood in Hyderabad and her career in the film industry.

Aditi Rao about her childhood

Aditi Rao, who was born into the Hydari royal family and grew up in both Hyderabad and Delhi, was recently in the city on business.

Aditi Rao has been living in Mumbai for several years, but she travels to Hyderabad frequently to see her extended family and friends. When we met her at her hotel, we asked her what her first impression of Hyderabad is. “A sense of belonging,” she said. “I feel proud, I feel like a daughter of the soil.” The city, she said, always reminded her of her maternal grandmother, who encouraged her to let go of her inhibitions and play in the mud. “I had a wonderful childhood and a typical upbringing.” “I spent the majority of my childhood with my grandmother,” she recalled.

Vidya Rao, Aditi’s mother, instilled in her a love of dance and music (a classical singer). She began dancing when she was five years old. Aditi says that dance has helped her with discipline and listening skills, when asked how it complements her personality. “I can’t imagine living in a world without dance and music; they’re both a part of who I am,” she says.

Aditi Rao is deeply rooted in tradition, despite the fact that she mostly dresses and behaves according to modern standards. “My ancestors have given me a traditional side,” she explains.

Aditi Rao first film Sringaram, was directed while she was still a student (2007). Her mother insisted that she complete her education before pursuing a full-time film career. As a result, she moved to Mumbai only in 2010. Working with top filmmakers such as Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Mani Ratnam over the past 13 years has also been extremely rewarding, according to Aditi.

“The learning curve has been steep,” Aditi Rao admits. “Even now, when I walk onto a film set, I feel like there’s always a lot to learn.” I’ve always wanted to try to improve myself. Because I don’t come from a film family, it’s been a difficult journey and a struggle. You are initially perplexed as to what types of projects to pursue. Your heart says one thing, but the people around you say something else. So, as a well-educated young lady, you feel obligated to listen to them and do the right thing. But the right thing to do is what your heart tells you,” Aditi explains.When I did Kaatru Veliyidai with Mani Sir, everything changed for me. “I’d always wanted to be a Mani Ratnam heroine, and Kaatru Veliyidai encouraged me to pursue my dream,” she says.

Aditi’s performance as Anarkali in the recent period web series Taj – Divided By Blood has received positive feedback. “I am overjoyed and grateful to the audience for their support,” she says. When she was approached to play the iconic 16th-century court dancer Anarkali, she initially declined because “I can only imagine Madhubala as the legendary dancer and love of Prince Salim,” she says. However, the Taj – Divided By Blood creative team insisted on her inclusion after seeing her as Mehrunisa in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat (2018).

“I listened to the story and was intrigued because their point of view was different [than Mughal-e-Azam, which starred Madhubala] because they were looking at it as a global story.” “They saw Anarkali differently, as a courageous and spirited woman who stood by her love despite the punishment,” she reveals.

While her role is “very challenging,” she says she is at her best “when challenged, pushed, and nurtured as an actor.”

Aditi has achieved a delicate balance between the Hindi and South industries at a time when most actors are forced to sacrifice one for the other. She also mentions that opportunities in both industries require luck. “Aren’t language barriers blurring?” she asks, emphasising that we are living in a “pan-India era,” with regional language films garnering national attention. “It’s all about storytelling in cinema.” “A great filmmaker creates a world in which the audience becomes immersed, a world in which emotions have no language or boundaries,” she says.
