Aditi Rao Hydari says it's unfair to make South industry part of Indian film industry only after its pan-India success

Of late, several celebrities have been voicing their opinion on the ongoing debate between the Bollywood industry and the South film industry. Aditi Rao Hydari, who has filmography boasting both north and south cinema, is the latest actor to share her valuable thought on the issue. The actor said that it is unfair that only after the success of south films people are considering it to be part of the Indian film industry.
In an interview with Film Companion, the Padmaavat actress emphasized how as part of an industry, one should be consciously aware. “Today, the world has gotten closer and it is not just Telugu, Tamil or Hindi. Somewhere we have to be consciously aware. We even say south actor… what does that even mean? Why do we say regional cinema? Every area is a region and that region has directors who are visionaries and tell beautiful stories,” she said.'
She continued, “Each one of us has the responsibility to constantly be woke and understand that we have to be together. Look at the cinema that has been coming from Tamil, Malayalam, and Telugu industries. It is wonderful. We must celebrate them. It is not fair that they are doing well and suddenly we are like ‘okay this is also us.’ We need to be more inclusive. We should have done it earlier. Rather than saying why we are not doing that, we need to understand that ‘that we’ is also us. It is all one. So, it is not us vs them. We are one and we should tap into all that is available.”
Meanwhile, Aditi Rao Hydari recently made her debut on the Cannes Film Festival 2022 red carpet. She dazzled in a hot pink and red sleeveless gown with a thigh-high slit and a long train for her red carpet appearance on Day 5 of the prestigious film festival. Not just that, she served a number of looks including one in Sabyasachi saree. Talking about how nervous she was ahead of the event. She said, “Sabya was chatting with me and I was like...You know I am a tiny person, now I cannot compete with like all the giraffes around me,” clarifying that she means giraffe in a good way. She added, “I am an actor and I am a tiny person and it’s fine. I am okay with it you know. So I have to be comfortable with who I am and how I present myself. Yeah so I am going to attempt it.”
On the work front, Aditi was last seen in the Tamil film, Hey Sinamika, co-starring Dulquer Salmaan and Kajal Aggarwal. Her upcoming projects include Gandhi Talks and Jubilee.
