While Aditi Rao Hydari’s films in 2017 failed at the box office but her performance in these films received lot of applause from critics and audience alike. However, 2018 seems to have started on a good note. Aditi Rao who was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, where she essayed the role of queen Mehrunissa, the wife of Sultan Alauddin Khilji, is going to become the part of yet another multi-starrer to be directed by ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam.
Adito Rao Hydari and Mani Ratnam have worked together last year for Kattru Veliyidai/Cheliya in which Karthi played the lead role. Recently during the media interaction, Aditi said, “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 Kaatru Veliyidai.”
While the actress refused to divulge further details about the film, speculations are rife that she would be a part of Mani Ratnam’s multi-starrer film starring Vijay Sethupathi, Simbu, Jyothika, Fahadh Faasil, and Aishwarya Rajesh. To be bankrolled by Madras Talkies, double Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman is on the board to compose the music.
