The beautiful Aditi Rao Hydari’s career seems to be going places. After having worked in Wazir, and Mani Ratnam’s Tamil movie, Katru Veliyidai, the actress is now set to work in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s, Padmavati, where she will portray the role of Ranveer Singh’s wife.

It’s interesting to note that Aditi landed the role of Allaudin Khilji’s wife, courtesy Jaya Bachchan. A source close to the development, says, “For a long time, Jayaji felt that Aditi had huge potential. ‘Her eyes are very deep, sad and expressive. Uske chehre pe ek noor hai (there’s a sparkle in her face),’ she told a friend. She then went further and recommended her to Sanjay Bhansali for Padmavati.”

 

Sanjay, who has tremendous regards for the veteran actress’ opinion, summoned Aditi for the role of Ranveer’s wife on her recommendation.
