Asked how does she look at her filmography consisting of work by such great names, Aditi told media here: “I feel really blessed because for somebody who does not know the industry… I have not grown up watching too many films but I just had this dream and in fact that dream was a little girl’s dream when I saw Mani sir’s film…. I saw Mani sir’s ‘Bombay’ and I wanted to be a Mani sir heroine.”
They will also work together in the upcoming Tamil film “Chekka Chivantha Vaanam”. She said her “intentions have always been to work with directors who inspire me and I respect”.
