Mani RatnamTeams Up With Aditi Rao Hydari Again…Aditi Confirms

 After Aishwarya Rai Bachchan it seems Mani Ratnam has  found a new muse.Aditi RaoHydari who starred in Mani Ratnam’s Kaatru Veliyidai  last year, is all set to reunite with Ratnam for another Tamil film that starts  shooting later this year.

Confirming this  development Aditi who is basking in her brief but brilliant  performance  in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, says she  couldn’t have  hoped for a  better start  to 2018. “The  positive reviews for Padmaavat were totally unexpected since I thought I didn’t have much to do.Now I am again doing a  film with Mani Ratnam, just a year after  KaatruVeliyidai.”

Doing two successive  projects of Mani Ratnam, does it mean she is his new muse?

“I’d love  to be!” laughs Hydari. “Which actress wouldn’t want to work with Mani Sir, and that too twice within one  year. I  learnt so much while doing Kaatru Veliyidai. I am sure this time again I’ll come away with something  very valuable.”

Aditi is  unwilling to share any more details  of the project except to say it would take her to a new area of emotions. “It won’t be  anything like Kaatru Veliyidai.Also,this time I hope to speak my own Tamil lines on screen.  For  Kaatru Veliyidai,I had diligently learnt the language and practised the nuances. But  finally my voice was dubbed by someone who did a wonderful job. This time I will try to do my  own lines.  But of course I’ll go whatever Mani Sir decides.”
