We have never heard any other actress, aside from Aishwarya Rai, say that the Bachchans have helped them a lot. Well, now there is one. Though no other details have been mentioned, like how did this happen or how does Jaya Bachchan have contact with Sanjay Leela Bhansali or how can she influence him to hire someone? Aditi in a recent interview said that she is grateful to the Bachchans for all of the support they have bestowed upon her. Aditi worked with Abhishek Bachchan in ‘Delhi 6’, which was something like her debut film. Then, she worked with Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Wazir’. We don’t know how Jaya Bachchan comes into that equation, but it seems it was Jaya who has recommended her to Sanjay for ‘Padmavati’. Aside from Bollywood films, she will soon be seen in Mani Ratnam’s upcoming film, whose teaser has already been getting a lot of hits on YouTube. Here’s Aditi being thankful in her own words

Aditi on how the Bachchans have been kind to her
Amitabh Bachchan has always spoken well of me, even though he doesn’t really have to, and so has Jayaji. Abhishek has also been sweet to me. I remember feeling lost at the premiere of Delhi 6 when Abhishek reached out and made me feel comfortable. Amitabhji also whispered to me really great things are going to happen to you.’ I was thrilled and baffled when he said that because I had such a small part in the film! He and Jayaji have continued to support me since.

I am aware of that. Such gestures are not easy to forget. And one shouldn’t forget them.
