Aditi Rao Hydari, who was a classical dancer before she became an actor with Tamil film 'Sringaram' (2007), says she still feels a strong connection with Bharatanatyam.

"I was five when I started learning Bharatanatyam. It was my choice to dance, also because I was surrounded by the classical arts. I was lucky that I got a teacher like Leela Samson.

Although I was in boarding school and my mother was very insistent that I finish my education, I performed a lot before I became an actor," said Aditi, who was recently in New Delhi to walk the ramp for a Linen Club fashion show.

According to the actor, "Any art form, beyond its own learning bring along a whole new worldview and a new way of being. One of the major things that I learnt and one that still stays with me, is that we're all unique. And it is better to work on improving yourself rather than compare yourself with others."

Does she still get time to rehearse? "Hardly. I learnt from such an amazing teacher, I feel I would be doing a disservice to the art form if I don't practice and I just step on to the stage.

I'm happy being in front of the camera, because I do it every day. It's like riyaaz," the actor told IANS.
