...says Aditi Prabhudeva who made her transition from the small screen to the big screen with Dhairyam and is now expecting the release of her next film, Bazaar

Published: 04th January 2019

Aditi Prabhudeva is no stranger to the Kannada film industry or audience. Having become a household name with her teleserial Nagakanike, she made the transition from the small screen to the big screen with Dhairyam, and is now gearing up for her second outing, Bazaar, which comes eight months after her debut film.

As she prepares for her upcoming release, the actor admits that months of hard work have gone into ensuring that her wait is fruitful. Bazaar, directed by Suni, will hit theatres next week, ahead of which Aditi is naturally anxious. “After Dhairyam, I was determined to take up projects with a good script and good team, even if it meant I had to wait. I went through many auditions and read a lot of scripts, before choosing Bazaar. I picked it mainly for the story and my role,” she says.

Talking about the other films she has in hand, Aditi says, “After I signed on Suni’s film, I bagged projects like Operation Nakshatra, Totapuri, and Singha, all of which give me a chance to explore my versatility.”

She also credits Nagakanike for helping her connect with the audience, and thus giving her a foothold in the film industry.  

For Aditi, showbiz was an unplanned entry. The engineer and MBA graduate planned on becoming a bank manager, but accidentally made her way into cinema. “But now I feel that this is where I belong to and this is my life,” says the actor, who hopes to bag the role of a rani (queen) someday, especially since she likes the look, costumes, and style of that era.  

According to Aditi, her character brings in the emotional quotient to Bazaar, which is about the sentiments between a father and daughter. 

Aditi has a particular thumb rule when it comes to her decisions in cinema — patience pays off. “I am trying my best not to fall for any script that comes my way. I’m treading with caution, which is the best way to go about anything in this industry,” she says.
