Mumbai: Actress Aditi Rao Hydari is tired of the hullabaloo around her bikini scene in the forthcoming film ‘Boss’. She wants people to start treating it as just another garment.
"Actually, the bikini is just another garment. I am sure every girl who swims has worn a bikini in a pool. You do wear a bikini in a pool, you don`t wear a gown! I think the hoopla around a bikini should go away because that is a wrong way to look at it," the 34-year-old said here Thursday while promoting the film at a college.
"It`s just a garment, a very beautiful garment. For a girl, to be happy with her body and her femininity is fine. In fact, I feel that everybody today should grow up and treat a bikini just as any other piece of clothing. I`ve been wearing a bikini since I was a kid, and I was very comfortable," she added.
Aditi admits she had to go through a rigorous fitness process to get a perfect bikini body.
"They (filmmakers) kept a very nice, closed set, they were very understanding. I worked out for five months and I was only thinking about when will it end and when will I be able to have a slice of pizza," Aditi said.
Directed by Anthony D`Souza, ‘Boss’ stars Akshay Kumar in the lead, while Shiv Pandit plays is paired with Aditi. The film will release Oct 16.
