Actress Aditi Rao Hydari says she has learnt to take failures in her stride in Bollywood and is keen on playing lead roles to get the "wholesome" experience as a protagonist on the screen.

"At every stage, you feel there is struggle but then you also feel grateful. I have been here for more than three years. Considering how many people want to be part of this magical world and how difficult it is, I am grateful to have got opportunity to be here and work in films. I did struggle but I have got work also", Aditi said.

She says the endearment from all, including her fans, is what helps her overcoming the pulls and pressure of her career.

"We do have problems like we can't be with family and friends all the time. Everything is not glamorous. There's glamour but that is from outside. Even though there is too much work, it feels good as you get so much love and respect in return," she said.

Aditi will be seen next opposite Akshay Kumar for the first time in Anthony D'Souza's upcoming potboiler Naam Hai Boss,/i>.

"I can't talk much about it. It is a male-dominated film and I am the only girl in it", she added.

Will like to play heroine, says Aditi Rao Hydari

"Whether it is a ten minute part or half an hour thing, I think you have to do it with as much love and hard work and enjoy as you can. I want to be a heroine because you get to live a journey when you are a heroine. When you play a supporting role, you get to play only one aspect of that life", Aditi said.

The actress, who happens to be the cousin of actor Aamir Khan's wife Kiran Rao, says the film industry is a difficult place where struggle is inherent.
