'I would love to dance in a film'

She has done five Hindi films so far and showed her versatility in each. Now, Aditi Rao Hydari has got a list of people with whom she wants to work — nor surprisingly, Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor feature on her wish list.

“I actually have a list of people that I want to work with and I am working towards that,” says Aditi. “I would like to work with Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor. It’s a long list because there are so many beautiful actors playing such interesting roles and that makes this place more interesting for girls like me to come and work here,” she adds. The 26-year-old made her Bollywood debut with a small role in Delhi 6, but with Yeh Saali Zindagi and ‘London, Paris, New York’, she graduated to bigger roles. She also featured in the Ranbir-starrer hit musical ‘Rockstar’ and her career seems to be moving in the right direction.

Her next film is ‘Boss’ with Akshay Kumar. Talking about her choice of roles, she says, “I want to work in an epic love story, a piece of literature that is made into a film as well as a dance film.” And what about item songs, which most actresses seem to regard as a feather in the cap these days? “The fact that they are called item numbers is a problem. Once you call it an item number, it immediately means something demeaning. It’s a way of dance,” she says. Citing the example of Madhuri Dixit, she explains, “When she dances, it isn’t an ‘item number’. She is just dancing. If a dancer dances, it looks like an exciting dance number — but if someone who doesn’t know how to dance is asked to do it, it’s going to be an item number”.

She admits, though, that she loves the song-and-dance routines that are such an integral part of Bollywood films. “I think dance tracks are wonderful. We Indians have dance and music in our blood. That is what makes our films what they are. They are fun and there is nothing wrong with them. I would love to dance in a film,” she adds.
