We all remember her from Rockstar and Bhoomi, and recently, she was highly revered by fans and critics for her role of Mehrunisa in the money-spinner Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat. While, Aditi has always believed in letting her work speak for herself, but because the way media operates in India, her personal life has always attracted many eyes.
For the uninitiated ones, Aditi Rao Hydari was married to actor, Satyadeep Mishra, who made his Bollywood debut in No One Killed Jessica (2012), and was last seen in the 2016 film Phobia. But in an interview in 2013, Aditi revealed that they are now separated.
Reports have it that Aditi and Satyadeep got married in the year 2007 when she only 21. They met while both of them were studying in school at the age of 17. And until 2013, Aditi intermittently denied any link-up with him. However, in the same year, she accepted her marital status and told the world that she and Satyadeep are now separated.
In an interview with the Times of India, Aditi, for the first time, talked about her marriage and was quoted as saying:
“Yes, I got married at 21 to Satyadeep, who was a civil servant and lawyer and gave it up to become an actor. He is a natural actor and is in fact playing the second lead with Emraan Hashmi in Danis Tanovic's next. I met him when I was 17 and that was my only serious relationship”.
She further added:
“It broke my heart when we separated, but only the name of the relationship collapsed as we are friends and are still close. For his mother, I am a daughter and for my mother, he will always remain a son. He is much older to me and always teases me about being his child who he cannot get rid of. Coincidentally, Murder 3 was about a girl picking up her life that I could relate to with my own life”.
In an interview that Aditi gave to the Hindustan Times, revealing her reasons for never being open about her estranged marriage, she said:
“I haven’t talked about it in the past and there’s a reason I don’t want to talk about it even now. Somehow, I don’t think that discussing personal stuff in terms of which family I come from or where I grew up, all that is not important as actors. We have to be transparent and we need to take on whatever is given to us, and we need not talk about our private life in open”.
Not many know that Aditi was earlier married, but it created a storm when there were link-up rumours of her with Wazir co-actor, Farhan Akhtar. Commenting on the same, she said that she simply laughs off such baseless reports. Adding further she retorted:
“The time duration for which it bothers me reduces with more work that I take up because I just realise that there is more to do. Also, as long as your family and people around you know what’s happening, I think you are answerable to them, and most importantly, you are answerable to yourself. You can’t be thinking about anything else”.
Shedding her thoughts on link-up rumours in general, the 31-year-old actor opened up:
“Again, this acting job is such. These link-up rumours are a part of your territory. People will make up stuff about you and make a mountain out of a mole hill. It’s fine. Everybody is doing their job and we have to focus on doing ours”.
Aditi also revealed why she doesn’t take to social media to comment on the rumours:
“If you do that, then you are talking about it even more. What’s the point? So, I don’t see the need to do that. For me, my family, dignity, and self respect are very important, and that’s the way I have been brought up”.
There is no doubt that Aditi Rao Hydari is a superb actress, and we hope to see more of her on the celluloid. She will next be seen in the Tamil film, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
