Aditi made her acting debut in 2006 opposite superstar Mammootty in the action thriller Prajapathi, following which she made her Tamil movie debut in the 2007 period drama Sringaram, which saw her play the role of a Bharatanatyam dancer. The movie became a commercial and critical success, winning as many as three National Film Awards. Although she shot for Sringaram before Prajapathi, since Prajapathi released before Srinagaram, it became her debut.
Seen in a supporting role, Aditi was roped in by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra in his 2009 drama Delhi-6, marking her Bollywood debut. The movie, starring Sonam Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan in the lead, went on to become a critical hit, winning the Nargis Dutt Award for Best Feature Film on National Integration at the 57th National Film Awards. However, she only gained recognition for her work in the 2011 romantic thriller Yeh Saali Zindagi, which co-starred Irrfan Khan, Chitrangada Singh, and Arunoday Singh. The movie was met with lukewarm response at the box office but received critical acclaim. She was then seen playing the role of a reporter in Imtiaz Ali’s highly acclaimed romantic drama Rockstar in 2011. The movie opened to mixed reviews, but was declared a commercial hit.
Next, she was cast alongside Randeep Hooda and Sara Loren in Vishesh Bhatt’s psychological thriller Murder 3, which was the official remake of the thriller The Hidden Face. The movie opened to mixed, mainly positive reviews, with critics stating, ”Murder 3 is one of the finest thrillers to come out of Vishesh Films.” She was then seen in the Akshay Kumar-starrer action masala Boss, where she was paired opposite Shiv Pandit. The movie, the Hindi remake of the Malayalam movie Pokkiri Raja, opened to mixed reviews and was an average grosser at the box office. She was seen in a supporting role in Disney’s Khoobsurat, playing the role of a royal princess, Kiara and was cast alongside Fawad Khan and Sonam Kapoor.
Aditi then shared screen space with Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar in the crime thriller Wazir, which was met with mixed reviews but was a commercial success. Playing the role of Tabu’s character’s younger self, Aditi was seen in Abhishek Kapoor’s 2016 romantic drama Fitoor. Her other projects include Sudhir Mishra’s Aur Devdas, where she plays the role of Chandramukhi, the Tamil romantic thriller Kaatru Veliyidai, co-starring Karthi, the Sanjay Dutt-starrer Bhoomi, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama Padmavati.
