- Aditi Rao Hydari spoke about her role in "Padmaavat"
- "I really enjoyed playing Mehrunisa," says Aditi
- "Padmaavat" was directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali
"The kind of response that Mehrunisa has got is incredible and I give full credit to Sanjay sir, the writers, the director of photography, the people who create that look for her. It's very complete part.
"In every scene, her character and how she comes out so beautifully in very few words is beautiful, so full credit to people who created that character and I really enjoyed playing her," added Aditi.
"Padmaavat", which stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles, hit the screens after a string of controversies. Despite the hurdles, it is on its way to Rs 200 crore at the box office.
Aditi, who played wife to Ranveer's character as Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khilji, says she was pleased to perform a character that was so strong.
"It's such a pleasure to play somebody who is not only vulnerable, delicate, regal, grace personified and pure, but also who is fearless and stands up for what is right at every stage and has absolutely no fear in doing so. I think it was a very beautiful character," said Aditi.
The actress walked the ramp for designer Payal Singhal on the fourth day of Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer-Resort 2018 in a lehenga-choli in pale rose, mint and lilac zardozi and filigree work, teamed with an embroidered tulle dupatta.
Payal Singhal showcased her line 'Saira', which celebrates the synergy of art and culture, of design and legacy, of history and evolution.
The collection features luxurious silks, jamavars and brocades accentuated with delicate organzas and tulle. Embroideries like kasav, mukaish, fardi, zardosi and filigree work have been juxtaposed with new techniques on contemporary Indian wear silhouettes like lehengas, dhoti sarees, kurtas and jackets.
On roping in Aditi as a showstopper, the designer said: "Aditi has got a very princess-like look. She has got Indian features, but has a very new age international look also which is very rare."
Will she design for Aditi's films too?
"We do have done clothes for her. In fact, I have done some outfits for her film Daas Dev, but we work with stylists," Payal Singhal told IANS.
