Aditi Rao Hydari may not be sounding overtly ecstatic but she is happy for sure. In a recent event at London, she was complimented by none less than Shahrukh Khan. The superstar was of a strong belief that the rising heroine was doing well for herself in the industry and wanted her to sustain the momentum while not changing her according the ways of the world.
Confirms Aditi, ”Yes, recently I was in London for an event where I was dancing with Shahrukh Khan. After we were through, he was speaking to me at length and was very kind and encouraging. He is someone whom I admire so much and if he takes interest in me and my work, it is indeed a big deal for me.”

Apparently, the actor wished her well and also shared a few tidbits around how to make a place for herself in the industry for a long innings.
”One thing that meant a world for me was when he said that I should never change and be the way I am,” reminisces Aditi, ”His words still play in my mind. He had no reasons to be so nice to me and yet he came forward. See, I have not grown up with him, I don’t go to his house, my parents don’t know him, and still he cared for me.”
Such has been the impact of that one conversation with Shahrukh Khan that the young woman, who would soon be seen in Akshay Kumar starrer BOSS as the only leading lady, has made a resolve to live up to the high expectations that have now been set for her.
”I would now work five times harder to gain such kind of response over and over again. I want him to be able to say the same thing again when I meet him next,” smiles Aditi.
