Fresh Bollywood face Aditi Rao Hydari played Ramaa bua, Sonam Kapoor’s young unwed aunt in Delhi-6.
Shefali Shah and Juhi Chawla were among the actresses who were considered for the part. The character was supposed to be a widow. However given Aditi’s age, Rama bua became a spinster who is caught between her two warring brothers played by Om Puri and Pawan Malhotra.
Aditi comes from a royal family. She has connections with Akbar Hydari founder of the Osmania University and Raja J Rameshwar Rao the head of a prominent princely family in Hyderabad.
Aditi’s mother runs a publication house Orient Longman now called Orient Blackswan. She is also playing Aishwarya Rai’s mother in Ravana.
The much-married Aditi lives in Mumbai with her husband Satyadeep Misra, a bureaucrat-turned-lawyer-turned-aspiring actor.
