Actress Radhika Apte satisfied after two-back-to-back various artists – Sriram Raghavan of ‘Badlapur’ and Harshvardhan Kulkarni of ‘Hunterrr’. Happy with the praise that comes your way, she says she will continue trying to choose unique characters.
Speaking of her performances, she said: “I think it really worked for me was that the two films and my characters they were so different from each other was just lucky that the two films came together..
“We shot ‘Hunterrr’ over a long period of time. We made an important part of gunfire and then stopped. We picked up the threads again after two years, we completed the film and quickly released. Fortunately, the lapse of time does not appear in the film “.
For an actress who has worked on films in seven languages, even before the age of 30 years, Radhika has a hunger to excel in unexpected roles.
“I will not see it looking pretty and dancing. I’m sure consuming cojonudo of discipline and hard work. But I prefer to channel my energy to do something different, like I did in ‘Badlapur’ and ‘Hunterrr'”.
In ‘Hunterrr’, Radhika played a character with a past.
“We are living in times when you do not expect women to be ‘sati savitris’. My character in ‘Hunterrr’ had a relationship and abortion. This is an easy person to relate to. I do not know any friend of mine who has not had sex before marriage “.
And now seeking real people continues.
“I do not care what the language of cinema is, as always having a connect with real life. I’m making Leena Yadav ‘Parched’ where I threw myself against some very brilliant actresses in a story that is set in Rajasthan. And I’m doing ‘The Field’ of Delhi mafia where my co-star is Neeraj Kabi (the monk in ‘Ship of Theseus).
“Then there is the biopic about Dashrath Manjhi with Ketan Mehta Nawazuddin Siddiqui who addressed. I have to play a rustic Bihari woman for the first time. I’m also doing a couple of short films, one led by Pia Sukanya called ‘Bombairiya’ and other co Soumita-starring Chatterjee directed by Sujoy Ghosh.
“Then there is a short film by Anurag Kashyap in forbidden love.”
Radhika who is married to a British musician, is very clear in their views on nudity in film.
“I’ve done a nude scene for a movie in English. In fact, I wrote an article about how I felt strongly about nudity. At the same time, I will not allow my personal space to be violated by any attention intrusive.
“Some time ago, someone had posted a naked Self-timer on the internet saying it was me. She does not even like me. And the controversy died a natural death.”
