“It has been a childhood dream of mine to work with Sanjay (Leela Bhansali) sir. I am actually very overwhelmed by the response because Mehrunisa, I knew, has a very special part and Sanjay sir had always told me that anyone who reads the script always asks who is going to play Mehrunisa. So, I knew it was a special part but it was a very tiny part,” Aditi told news agency IANS here.

“The kind of response that Mehrunisa has got is incredible and I give full credit to Sanjay sir, the writers, the director of photography, the people who create that look for her. It’s very complete part.

“In every scene, her character and how she comes out so beautifully in very few words (is beautiful), so full credit to people who created that character and I really enjoyed playing her,” added Aditi.

“Padmaavat”, which stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in key roles, hit the screens after a string of controversies. Despite the hurdles, it is on its way to Rs 200 crore at the box office.

Aditi, who played wife to Ranveer’s character as Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khilji, says she was pleased to perform a character that was so strong.

“It’s such a pleasure to play somebody who is not only vulnerable, delicate, regal, grace personified and pure, but also who is fearless and stands up for what is right at every stage and has absolutely no fear in doing so. I think it was a very beautiful character,” said Aditi.

The actress walked the ramp for designer Payal Singhal on the fourth day of Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer-Resort 2018 in a lehenga-choli in pale rose, mint and lilac zardozi and filigree work, teamed with an embroidered tulle dupatta.

She was looking drop dead gorgeous in fully embroidered lehenga.

Singhal showcased her line ‘Saira’, which celebrates the synergy of art and culture, of design and legacy, of history and evolution.

The collection dips into history, tracing the influence of Islam on art, textiles and architecture in regions like Turkey, Morocco, Persia, Mughal India, Iran, and Afghanistan. There are intricate patterns, jaali work, filigree, and antique embroidery inspired from the era gone by.

The collection features luxurious silks, jamavars and brocades accentuated with delicate organzas and tulle. Embroideries like kasav, mukaish, fardi, zardosi and filigree work have been juxtaposed with new techniques on contemporary Indian wear silhouettes like lehengas, dhoti sarees, kurtas and jackets.

On roping in Aditi as a showstopper, the designer said: “Aditi has got a very princess-like look. She has got Indian features, but has a very new age international look also which is very rare.”

Will she design for Aditi’s films too?

“We do have done clothes for her. In fact, I have done some outfits for her film ‘Daas Dev’, but we work with stylists,” Singhal told IANS.



PM Modi to Bollywood: Create films on Gandhi and Gandhism

Spotted at the occasion were several eminent stars and filmmakers, including Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Jacqueline Fernandez, Imtiaz Ali, Ekta Kapoor, Anurag Basu, and Boney Kapoor.

New Delhi, Oct 19 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with members of the film industry on Saturday in the Capital, and several of Bollywood’s top stars were present at the event.

The focus was on inviting the film industry to create films and television shows that popularise Mahatma Gandhi and Gandhism, to mark the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation.

“Gandhi is synonymous with simplicity. His thoughts reverberate far and wide. The power of creativity is immense, and it is essential to harness this spirit of creativity for our nation. Several people from the world of films and television have been doing great work when it comes to popularising the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi,” noted Prime Minister Modi.

Spotted at the occasion were several eminent stars and filmmakers, including Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Jacqueline Fernandez, Imtiaz Ali, Ekta Kapoor, Anurag Basu, and Boney Kapoor.

“I would like to thank the Prime Minister for bringing us all together, that too for a cause such as this. I feel we need to re-introduce Gandhi ji to India and the world. The film industry can get self-obsessed and it is important we create work that is not only about business,” said Shah Rukh, about the need of the industry to come forward and make films on Gandhi that can help in the nation-building process.

Said Aamir, about the interaction session with the Prime Minister: “It was a wonderful interaction we had with the Prime Minister today. He was very inspiring, very warm and very deep in what he had to say. I want to appreciate the PM for thinking about this effort. As creative people, there is much we can do, and I assure the PM that we will do even more.”

For Kangana, the effort underlines the fact that Prime Minister Modi has recognised the power of the film industry.

“Modi ji is the first Prime Minister who is so inclusive of art and artistes and the film industry. Nobody has recognised the soft power of art and artistes in the country before. From the bottom of my heart and on behalf of the film industry, I thank the Prime Minister,” said Kangana.

Jacqueline said it was “an extreme honour be in the presence of PM Modi ji, and also to have a Prime Minister who is so willing to lend a helping hand to the film fraternity”.

After the session with the PM, producer Ekta Kapoor said she felt that “for the first time it seemed like there is someone who knows our industry better than us”.

Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali noted the tone of informality about the session helped. “The best thing about the session was that it was very informal. The film industry understands the informal language the best. The idea to make films on Gandhi ji will help reintroduce ourselves to Gandhi ji’s philosophy,” he noted.

Said filmmaker Anurag Basu: “When we make films, there are moments we wonder why are we doing this. Today, we got a reason, a direction. All the creative people here are extremely upbeat after the session. I feel we will see results in a year’s time.”

Producer Boney Kapoor added: “This government has always been sympathetic to the film industry right from (Atal Bihari) Vajpayee saab’s time when we were recognised as an industry. Since Mr Modi came in, he has made it a point to ensure every glitch is solved instantly.”
