The Yash Raj film has been directed by Habib Faisal and will hit theatres on September 19.
The actor is all praise for his director’s clarity of thought and said he was pushed beyond his limits by Habib during the making of the film.
“He is one director who has a lot of clarity about what he wants. He is dedicated and he is someone who will not settle for the mediocre. So I knew that I was in good hands and I knew he would extract the best out of me. I was very relaxed during the filming,” he said.
Aditya is set to begin shooting for Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Fitoor’, which is an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ novel, Great Expectations.
The film explores the relationship between three characters: a young Kashmiri boy named Noor (played by Aditya), his muse Firdaus (played by Katrina Kaif) and the mercurial Begum (played by Rekha).
“‘Fitoor’ will begin in the next couple of months. I have to lose weight and slim down a little so as to fit into the character. I am on a special diet… there are acting workshops that are planned,” he said.
When asked if he has given a nod to Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Milan Talkies’ after the filmmaker expressed a desire to cast him and his ‘Aashiqui 2’ co-star Shraddha Kapoor, Aditya said, “Nothing has been finalised yet so I cannot discuss it.” PTI JCH
