Women shouldn’t be burdened by expectations: Aditi

Wednesday, March 09, 2016

Actress Aditi Rao Hydari feels women should follow their heart and not conform to the expectations of  society. The 29 year old "Wazir" star has shot for an online dance video that celebrates womanhood. "I feel women should live the way they want to... To be who you are and not be burdened by any kind of pressure of who you are expected to be", Aditi said.

Directed by Akanksha Seda, "Let's Dance" by Culture Machine, was released yesterday to mark International Women's Day, featuring Aditi performing western dance forms like contemporary and freestyle and in the background, while talking about what being a woman means to her.

The "Guddu Rangeela" actress said she was comfortable sharing every part of information she has shared in the video. "I believe that one should feel comfortable with who one is and I don't think fear should enter your psyche about how you live your life or what you cannot do. Of course, there are times when you feel perplexed, but it's all about overcoming that and trying to be the best version of yourself and celebrate who you are".

"Let's Dance" is a part of "UnBlushed" series, which previously featured Bollywood actresses Kalki Koechlin, Sayani Gupta and Nimrat Kaur speaking their heart out. The series showcases women celebrities who are unapologetic, brave and beautiful.

Hydari is a classical Bharatnatyam dancer but she said she wanted to "break out of the box" and opted for western dance forms in the video.

"I am trying to say through the video that, why do we have to be boxed into little boxes? People think that I am a classical dancer, hence, I will only do that, or I will only do certain kind of roles. Even though I am a classical dancer, I have performed freestyle and contemporary dance in the video because I wanted to break out of the box. The language of dance is to be free and open, whether you do freestyle, jazz or contemporary," she said.

"Through the video, I am not showcasing dance but my soul which is dance and the video is about it.”
