Aditi Rao Hydari recently opened up about her now-famous Gajagamini walk in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Heeramandi. She admitted that she was unaware of the significance until Bhansali revealed it to her.

“I had to ask Sanjay sir and my dance teacher about it. Is it the Gajagamini walk, the swan walk? I wasn’t sure! I did exactly what Sanjay sir asked me to do. In Kathak, there is Mayur chaal (peacock walk) and Gajagamini (walk of seduction), but I need to find out more about it,” Aditi revealed.

In Heeramandi, Aditi plays Bibbojaan. The series, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, also stars Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Richa Chadha, Sanjeeda Shaikh, Sharmin Segal Mehta, Farida Jalal, Fardeen Khan, Shekhar Suman, and Adhyayan Suman. It digs into the many perspectives and hardships of women during the independence movement.

In an earlier interview, Aditi praised Bhansali, saying, “I am very protective of him. He is incredibly precious and deserves to be protected. Working with him has been a huge blessing. With Bibbojaan and Heeramandi, I felt I had more time with someone I deeply respect and love. Being around a genius like him is a profound experience, and one or two projects are never enough. It’s addictive; you want to keep working with him. Any role he offers me is always something special.”
