Actor Aditi Rao Hydari wants to play lead roles

Mumbai: For actress Aditi Rao Hydari, the transition from being a supporting actor in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra`s `Delhi 6` to a leading role in `London Paris New York` is all due to destiny and now she would like to do more of lead roles only.

It is because of destiny. People said that they wanted to see me in a lead role but I could do nothing without contacts. One can sit in chair and say she is talented but not do anything about it. It takes a leap of faith for a producer to say we will take her. So I feel its destiny that I got this film."

Aditi, who would be seen in Goldie Behl`s upcoming film, `London Paris New York` opposite Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar, says this time she would like to stick her guns to lead roles.

"When I started my film career, I never thought of any difference between lead and supporting characters. I feel supporting roles gives a window into a particular aspect of a character while leading roles let you live the full life of a character," Aditi said.

"I would like to do lead roles. I feel that I can give a lot to a lead roles. And there are some really good offers that have come my way. Now, if I just accept to do only second lead roles then I would get slotted. And I would not like the industry to slot me into anything. I don`t want this to happen," she said.

The actress feels that lead roles provide more scope for an actor.

"In a lead role, you get to do so much on several fronts-- be it emotions, pain, happy and sad stuff, sing, dance get to live a life, which is very satisfying. I always wanted to do that and this is where I want to be," Aditi said.
