Radhika Apte who is always vocal about her opinions is also known for her unconventional choices of films. Recently, she became a victim of social media troll attacks for wearing a bikini on a beach in Goa. Talking about the trolls, Radhika said to a leading Indian daily, “I didn’t even know I was being trolled till someone told me. It’s ridiculous! Do people expect me to wear a sari on a beach? I don’t know them, so I don’t deal with them.”
Speaking about the responses to her performance in Padman, she said, “I haven’t read all the reviews, but I knew people would like it. It’s a perfect mixture of feel-good content and mass appeal. I might have played village girls, but all the roles have been different from each other.”
Radhika shared her experience working with Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Sacred Games by stating, “I think it was a combination of all those things, plus the medium. Also, I had never been directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, who is helming my part. I wanted to collaborate with Saif and Nawaz as well, so it all worked out. But I have gone through the script, and it’s great.”
Radhika has an amazing line up of films. She will be seen in Baazaar and Shoot the Piano Player (working title). The actress says that she is excited about her work as an artist. “I would not promote something that I don’t believe in. I should be convinced about the filmmaker’s approach to the subject. Otherwise, I have no limitations,” Radhika said.
