Hyderabad, July 22: Though Aditi Rao Hydari was born and brought up in Hyderabad, doing a Telugu film was a standoffish dream. Having finally made her Tollywood debut in 'Sammohanam', she is fervent at its success.
"I was so excited to shoot in Hyderabad, and I am super thrilled that my 1st Telugu film has been a success. I don't feel like my Telugu debut was delayed. I was just looking for the right opportunity. I feel my tenacity has paid off with director Indraganti's script," Aditi says.
The actress adds that the success of her film has made her more responsible. "There is no motivation greater than success; I shall now double my efforts. It means a lot to me because I am relatively new to the industry, and such benefits keep me going. It's only been in the last couple of years that I've figured out that I can actually make a career in this industry," she says.
Aditi will soon be seen playing an astronaut in Ghazi fame Sankalp Reddy's yet-untitled space thriller in which she will be seen playing opposite Varun Tej.
"Varun and I had to undergo intensive anti-gravity training for a few weeks with a team of specialists from Bulgaria. That training helped me get into the skin of the character," she shares.
