Working in a big scale masala entertainer was a whole lot of “fun” for actress Aditi Rao Hydari.
“For me, ‘Boss’ was great fun because it is the first big scale, masala film that I have done. ‘Boss’ has everything – comedy, drama, a lot of action and the two of us (me and Shiv Pandit) bring in some relief in the form of romance,” Aditi Rao Hydari said here while promoting the film at a college.
“After ‘Murder 3’, ‘Boss’ is the film that excited me the most. I had never done a film of this kind and I wanted to…they are enjoyable,” Aditi Rao Hydari added.
Aditi Rao Hydari, who has earlier featured in films like “Yeh Saali Zindagi”, “Rockstar” and “London, Paris, New York”, admits that a commercial film is the way to reach the audiences. She hopes that this turns out true for her also with “Boss”.
“Their (commercial films) scale is such that they reach more people. Why do we act? You know, we can just act in the bathroom. But we act because we want everybody’s love and we want the audience to love us and keep us in their hearts. So when there is a film which reaches everyone…hopefully, it works for us,” Aditi Rao Hydari said.
Directed by Anthony D’Souza, “Boss” stars Akshay Kumar in the lead while Shiv Pandit plays the romantic lead opposite Aditi Rao Hydari. A remake of Malayalam movie “Pokkiri Raja”, the film hits theatres Oct 16.
