Actor Aditi Rao Hydari says she is extremely happy that veteran actor Jaya Bachchan recommended her name to filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali for ‘Padmaavat’.
Hydari features in the recently released period drama as Alauddin Khilji’s wife Mehrunissa.
“It felt so amazing that she had suggested my name to him. I have never had that kind of support or backing in the industry. So, when people who I love and respect so much stand up for me, or encourage and appreciate me, it means a lot,” Hydari told PTI in an interview.
Asked if she knows what prompted Bachchan to suggest her name, Hydari saif she read it in newspapers that it was her eyes which impressed the senior actor.
“When you get a blessing, you don’t ask questions. She did mention (the reason) why to Sanjay sir, but I read somewhere that she said there is some purity in my eyes and ‘noor’ on my face,” she said.
As Mehrunissa, the actor played the perfect antithesis to Ranveer Singh’s aggressive portrayal of Khilji.happy wheels
