Several stories have been circulating about how Aditi Rao Hydari was forced to walk to the Noida fashion show after her driver was found driving on the wrong side of the road. While the incident is true some facts have been falsified.
Clarifying this entire unnecessarily hyped situation, Aditi Rao Hydari said, “The mall was bang opposite the hotel I was staying at and I wanted to walk down the road to go to the mall but was advised by the event staff to take a car instead because it was a weekend and the streets were pretty crowded. I was attending to some urgent work mails on my phone when my car stopped, assuming that it must be a signal, I didn’t look up and continued with my work on phone. I realized we were stopped by the cops when my driver stepped out and understood that some law must be broken. I stepped out of the car with my team and walked towards the mall.
I honestly don’t see why such a big deal should be made about this. I was not in the driver’s seat, it wasn’t my car and he was not even my regular driver. I don’t appreciate my name being used to break a rule and get away with it, so I left.”
