Aditi Rao Hydari doesn’t mix family with work
Aditi Rao Hydari, who is filmmaker Kiran Rao’s cousin, says she would love to work with her, but the actress doesn’t like to mix family with work.

Asked if the audience will ever get to see her working under Kiran’s direction, Aditi told IANS: “I would love to work with her. She is an amazing and fearless director and very intelligent. As a person, I have always admired her, but I don’t mix family with work.”

Also asked if she’d like to work with Kiran’s husband and actor-producer Aamir Khan, the “Yeh Saali Zindagi” actress said: “I would love to, but like I said, I come from a family where you prove yourself on your own and make your own journey.”

Aditi is geared up for the release of “Wazir”. She says it was her privilege to work with megastar Amitabh Bachchan and the versatile Farhan Akhtar in the Bejoy Nambiar directorial.

“There are no words to describe when you work with people you admire the most. I was intimidated by them, but when we were in front of the camera we were fine,” she said.
