Want to be heroine, not supporting actress: Aditi Rao
Mumbai: Actress Aditi Rao Hydari says she has learnt to take failures in her stride in Bollywood and is keen on playing lead roles to get the "wholesome" experience as a protagonist on the screen.
"Whether it is a ten minute part or half an hour thing, I think you have to do it with as much love and hard work and enjoy as you can. I want to be a heroine because you get to live a journey when you are a heroine. When you play a supporting role, you get to play only one aspect of that life," Aditi told PTI.
The actress, who happens to be the cousin of actor Aamir Khan's wife Kiran Rao, says the film industry is a difficult place where struggle is inherent.
Aditi made her debut with 'Delhi 6'. She shot to fame for her role in her very next film 'Yeh Saali Zindagi'.
"The industry is a difficult place to be in. It is not at all rosy. There are judgments being made. I don't like bad publicity but that is part and parcel of it. However, I am grateful for whatever I have got from the industry. I came from Delhi and did not know anyone here. So for me it is all good. And I am happy," the actress said.
Aditi, who made waves for her roles in Imtiaz Ali's 'Rockstar', Goldie Behl's 'London Paris New York' and Bhatt camp's 'Murder 3', says the actors' fraternity always craves for attention.
"I think the volume of acceptance is changing. At the beginning when I did 'Yeh Saali Hai Zindagi', I got a lot of love which is ever increasing. As actors, we want more people to love and appreciate us. We want more fans....As films are a mass medium if more people love your work it is better," she said.
Aditi said she loved being the actress as this career exhilarates her.
"It is so much fun...live a life, sing and dance. For me, this is magic, I love it...I don't look at it as burden", she said.
