S Shankar is considered one of Tamil cinema’s most acclaimed and successful filmmakers. His daughter, actress Aditi Shankar is carrying forward his legacy. So far, she has been able to do it to perfection with a promising debut as a lead actress in Karthi-starrer Viruman. She then appeared as Sivakarthikeya’s love interest in the superhero film Maaveeran. Both the films were huge box office successes. While she has received acclaim as an actress, there is another side to her that very few would know. Did you know that Aditi is an accomplished doctor? Yes, she holds a doctor’s degree. In her most recent social media post, she can be seen donning a doctor’s attire.
Aditi has shared two photos of herself donning a doctor’s surgical uniform. It seems like she is getting ready for a surgery, with a surgical mask and cap on. She has simply captioned the post as “Dr A.” It is not known whether it is a still from an upcoming film or she is actually working as a full time doctor now.
Some fans believe she is filming for a new project, while others are pointing out that she is professionally a doctor too and hence could have started practising as well. Aditi has decided to tease her fans to a bit of suspense, as she remains mum on the context of the picture.
Aditi started studying medicine way before she entered the film industry and obtained her degree before her debut film Viruman released. Aditi had shared pictures from her convocation ceremony in December 2021.
In addition to starring opposite Akash Murali in an untitled Vishnuvardhan film, she is also appearing in a new movie under the direction of Ramkumar of Ratsasan fame. Apart from acting and holding a medical degree, Aditi has also dabbled with playback singing. She debuted as a playback singer for the song Romeo and Juliet from the Telugu film Ghani.
