I think he was one of those fearless actors who backed and was part of very different kind of cinema. He was one of the first few actors who did lot of non-commercial films, backed it and even acted in English and British cinema. I feel he is going to live in our heart forever for sure”
Talking about associating with watch brand ‘Swatch’, Aditi said, “I like ‘Swatch’ as a brand a lot.

I have other watches but I wear ‘Swatch’ a lot and their collection is lot of fun. I feel ‘Swatch’ as a brand is really fun. It’s very playful, quirky, unique and their designs are always unique.”
“They bring almost 250 designs every year so I feel, it’s really amazing in terms of design. I don’t think any watch company has done this before where you can go in and make your own design that is unique to you, what you like and how you want to your watch to look lie so I feel it’s really cool”
