She has received for her brief yet evocative role as Mehrunisa in the film.
The actress says, she is overjoyed by the positive response.
“I never expected so much praise for such a brief role. But then Sanjay sir had told me I’d be happy with my role. I am not just happy. I am overjoyed.”
“The response has been tremendous. And I can see why. My character Mehrunisa comes across as the only source of positivity that’s pure and honest in Khilji’s life,” she added.
Aditi says, “Ranveer’s Khilji is such a dark evil character. There’s no light in his life, except for his wife. Played by me. She is the light in that deep well of Khilji’s consciousness.”
She says, “Sanjay sir made Mehrunisa much more than just a victim of a sadistic marriage. She understands her responsibilities as royalty and fulfils them with great dignity under pressure.”
Aditi will seen in her upcoming movie ‘Daas Dev’.–CINEWS
