For actress Aditi Rao Hydari,the transition from being a supporting actor in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Delhi 6’ to a leading role in ‘London Paris New York’ is all due to destiny and now she would like to do more of lead roles only.
“It is because of destiny. People said that they wanted to see me in a lead role but I could do nothing without contacts. One can sit in chair and say she is talented but not
do anything about it. It takes a leap of faith for a producer to say we will take her. So I feel its destiny that I got this film.”
Aditi,who would be seen in Goldie Behl’s upcoming film,’London Paris New York’ opposite Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar,says this time she would like to stick her guns to lead roles.
“When I started my film career,I never thought of any difference between lead and supporting characters. I feel supporting roles gives a window into a particular aspect of a character while leading roles let you live the full life of a
character,” Aditi said.
“I would like to do lead roles. I feel that I can give a lot to a lead roles. And there are some really good offers that have come my way. Now,if I just accept to do only second lead roles then I would get slotted. And I would not like the industry to slot me into anything. I don’t want this to happen,” she said.
The actress feels that lead roles provide more scope for an actor.
“In a lead role,you get to do so much on several fronts– be it emotions,pain,happy and sad stuff,sing,dance etc…you get to live a life,which is very satisfying.
I always wanted to do that and this is where I want to be,” Aditi said.
