Actor Aditi Rao Hydari recently spoke about her early days in Bollywood. The actor appeared on Anaita Shroff Adajania’s chat show Feet Up With The Stars where she was asked about her weirdest memory from an audition.

According to a report in Pinkvilla, talking about her second Bollywood film, Aditi said, “I don’t have any whacked out stories from auditions, except the Yeh Saali Zindagi audition where I had to literally make out with someone I didn’t know.” She added, “But at that point, I didn’t know him and he was a huge Hulk of a guy and I was just like, ‘Uh...what’s going on here?” Aditi had starred alongside Arunoday Singh in the film which had a few intimate scenes between the two actors.


Aditi had made her Bollywood debut with Sonam Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan’s Delhi 6 in which she played the role of Rama. She was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat which collected over Rs 300 crore at the domestic box office. Aditi had played the role of Mehrunisa, the wife of antagonist Alauddin Khilji played by Ranveer Singh. She was also seen in Telugu film Antariksham 9000 KMPH.

While narrating her experience of shooting for Yeh Saali Zindagi, Aditi said she was taken shocked when she found her backless pictures on the Internet. Aditi also spoke about the time when she stopped doing a Google search for herself. According to IANS, Aditi said, “Once I googled myself and came across some not so pleasant images with bareback from my first movie. After that, I consciously decided to never Google myself again.”
