Actor Aditi Rao Hydari, who is sharing screen space with Farhan Akhtar in Wazir, says she felt like a fan in front of the Rock On star.
The thriller-drama, produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and directed by Bejoy Nambiar, also stars megastar Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.
Aditi says as she did not grow up with people from Bollywood, she gets awe-struck when she comes face to face with many people from the film industry.
“I have not hung with these people while growing up, so just being with there with them on set was amazing. There is always that awe-struck fan girl moment with people like Bachchan sir, Farhan, Vidhu Vinod Chopra sir or even Bejoy,” said Aditi.
“What I found with Farhan was the same feeling of a fan girl but once you come in front of the camera, you are just playing the character.
Farhan is into what he does, he is very present, the honesty in his eyes struck me. His eyes are speaking the truth,” she added.
The 29-year-old London Paris New York actor made her Bollywood debut with Delhi 6 but rose to prominence with Sudhir Mishra’s 2011 film Yeh Saali Zindagi.
The actor will now be seen playing the role of Ruhana Ali, wife of Danish, played by Farhan. Aditi was “speechless” when the film was offered to her. Wazir is scheduled to release on January 8.
