After her walk from the series went viral, Aditi spoke about it crediting Bhansali for his vision. She said that she did not know about gajagamini walk until it was explained to her by the filmmaker. "It was what Sanjay sir asked me to do. I followed Sanjay sir and what he told me. I know in Kathak there is Mayur chaal (peacock walk), then there is Gajagamini (walk of seduction), but I am sure it is in all the dance forms. But, I don't know, I should find out. Whatever I see on Instagram, reel upon reel, the whole viral nature of that tukda (piece) is so overwhelming. He (Sanjay) is very good at spotting magic on the spot and he created a lot of nuances in the process. He said that he wanted that dupatta to fall on a particular beat, the head to turn and the ‘chann' (sound of the ghungroo) to come exactly on the beat, so it was all his thought and his creation," she said in an interview with India Today.

She further added, " Also, when I had put on the Ghagra, Sanjay Sir told me that I had put on weight. I asked him to give me 10 days since it was post Covid. He said, ‘No you look beautiful. Let's shoot.' I really value that. That's why I say he is an incredible teacher."

Aditi plays the character of courtesan Bibbojaan in 'Heeramandi', who is the elder daughter of Mallikajaan portrayed by Manisha Koirala. The series is based on the Indian independence movement of the 1920s-40s.
