Aditi Rao Hydari, who is starring in the latest installment of the Murder franchise, says the movie is not all about erotica and boasts of a great storyline.
“This particular film is about relationships and there is love, lust and sex in (all) relationships… that is natural. So, there is that element. Murder 3 is far beyond these things… it is not only about erotica. It is a fantastic story,” the 34-year-old said in an interview with a few reporters in Mumbai.
Aditi is also all praise for first-time director Vishesh Bhatt, son of veteran filmmaker Mukesh Bhatt.
“Vishesh handled this film amazingly. It is his first film; he studies in New York and had a very clear idea about what he wants,” said the actress, previously seen in films like Rockstar and London, Paris, New York.
Murder 3, releasing Feb 15, also stars Randeep Hooda and Pakistani actress Sara Loren.
Asked about the reason behind quitting Raanjhnaa, Aditi said, “It was a very nice part, I would have wanted to do the film but I had committed to Muder 3 already.”
“If I have committed to something, I cannot do anything else. I did not even sign Raanjhnaa.”
The role is now being played by Swara Bhaskar.
Being directed by Aanand Rai, Raanjhnaa also stars Dhanush, Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol.
