Her bio on Instagram reads: “In a world full of Kardashians, be an Audrey.” “It is cheeky but I believe it,” laughs Aditi as we settle down to chat over her recent achievement. As the single, silent, solid performer who always lets her work do the talking, her quiet, composed and graceful style of working has always held her in good stead. What was her reaction on winning the coveted National Award? “Of course, it feels amazing,” she smiles radiantly.

She confesses to having been lucky enough to have worked with amazing film directors during the course of her career in cinema.
