Aditi Rao Hydari Revealed Why Sanjay Leela Bhansali Told Her ‘khana mat khana’

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming web series is Heeramandi. In the series, Aditi Rao Hydari portrays the role of Bibbojaan.

Heeramandi by Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one of the most anticipated shows of the year. In the recent interview, Aditi Rao Hydari revealed how she became a part in the series. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali even told her not to eat before a crucial scene.

Aditi when asked about her experience of collaborating with Sanjay Leela Bhansali said, “He’s very passionate about everything he does. He’s also very knowledgeable. He has true love for each and every art form that goes into making cinema, and that I find very infectious. I would say that whatever one comes with in one’s blood, when you walk on to a Sanjay Leela Bhansali set, it is complete surrender. You have to become a sponge.”

She further added, “People perceive actors in a particular way. They may be like, Oh, if you blow, she’ll just fly away. She’s so delicate! But for him, there’s more to a person than that. One day, he kept me hungry because I had to do a scene which was full of fire. He said, ‘Aaj khana mat khana’, and that helped me get that simmering sense of injustice.”

Heeramandi casts Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Richa Chadha and Sanjeeda Shaikh in pivotal roles. The series also is a comeback of Fardeen Khan after a gap of 14 years. The series portrays the cultural reality of Heeramandi, a dazzling district. It also portrays the stories of courtesans and their patrons which is set against the tumultuous backdrop of the Indian freedom struggle of the 1940s. The series releases on Netflix on May 1.
