T+L India: How hard is it to always be your best version? What are you doing for your glowing skin and fit body?

Aditi Rao Hydari: I studied and got nerdy about it now. Previously, I was not, I just relied on genetics. But, over time, I became more observant because as actors we have irregular hours and irregular sleeping hours. A lot of directors I’ve worked with have wanted me to be on screen without makeup. So it’s all about the little things that add up over time, like not abusing your body.

But at the same time, you need to understand what works for you and what doesn’t. You need to eat healthy, but once in a while give in to your cravings – eat those chocolates! It’s all about balancing things.

Most importantly, you need to stay happy, and then you can channel that happiness into whatever is going on around you. Happiness is contagious and people cling to it. You might be the prettiest person in a room, but if you’re unhappy, you won’t make anyone happy.

T+L India: How to keep fit while travelling?

Aditi Rao Hydari: The simplest would be to do a functional routine of 10 to 15 minutes. I think if you got on well with your food and kept up your pace, then just 15 minutes is enough for you to feel good.

I’m not a gym fanatic and I don’t want to be addicted to that stuff because it’s addictive. I want to be able to train when I can and not feel bad when I don’t. I really like yoga and dancing, so I try to do that whenever I can.

T+L India: How does travel inspire you as an actor?

Aditi Rao Hydari: Travel expands your mind and makes you less judgmental. It makes you accept different people and cultures. For me, traveling is about celebrating differences and diversity. I feel like a five year old when I travel because there is so much to experience. There is a sense of adventure in the unknown and I love that.

T+L India: What’s your idea of ​​a romantic getaway?

Aditi Rao Hydari: When you are with the person you love, any place becomes beautiful. It’s about two people who are comfortable and happy in each other’s company.

But with the work that I do, it would be nice to go somewhere where you can just be part of another environment seamlessly. Where you can just relax, let your hair down and not worry about anyone identifying you. I crave this anonymity.

T+L India: What do you think is an idyllic honeymoon destination?

Aditi Rao Hydari: Tuscany and some places in Portugal are beautiful. I generally like Europe because I love history and the culture is quite varied in different regions.

T+L India: You shot Jumeirah Sadiyaat, what did you like about the property?

Aditi Rao Hydari: The expanse of an empty private beach and the blue sea. I love being near the sea, I find it very romantic, beautiful and musical. I love sound waves. Just being here (at the property) made me breathe easy and it was peaceful. Everything was moving in slow motion, I loved that feeling.

T+L India: What kind of wedding would you prefer, a lavish destination wedding or a close intimate affair?

Aditi Rao Hydari: I would prefer an intimate destination wedding, which is an intimate affair because I believe celebrations should be done with your loved ones. It’s their blessings that matter the most, and it’s about feeling the love in that moment.
