I can’t wait to dive into the madness of a film set, says Radhika Apte as she gears up for the shoot of ‘Vikram Vedha’ – Times of India
Known for selecting unconventional subjects and getting into the skin of every character that she plays, Radhika Apte is back to doing what she does best – acting. The actress is gearing up to begin the shoot of her upcoming project, ‘Vikram Vedha’, which stars Saif Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan. She will join the cast next week. Radhika, who spent most of the lockdown period in London, returned to India last week.
Talking about being back on a set shooting for the film in the next few days, Radhika says, “I can’t wait to dive right into the madness of a film set, which I absolutely love, and live for. I have been waiting to resume the shoot for Vikram Vedha. It’s a passionate bunch of people who are coming together to create what we believe will be a great portrayal of a phenomenal story.”
Over the years, Radhika has been a part of several web shows like ‘Sacred Games’, ‘Ghoul’ and films, including ‘Shor in the City’, ‘Parched’, ‘Pad Man’ and ‘Andhadhun’. Her last theatrical release was ‘Bombairiya’. Reflecting on her career choices, she says, “It has to be something that excites me. If I find it challenging, I’m very excited to go on sets and work with the people there, whether the director or actors. All these things really matter. Sometimes it is the commercial viability, at other times, it’s the need to work or the money… there are various factors.”
Besides her work in the Hindi film industry, she has also dabbled in regional cinema, which includes Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu as well as English projects. Ask her about working in languages that she doesn’t speak, and she says, “Hindi, Marathi and English are the languages that I speak and understand. It’s very hard to do something in a language that you don’t understand. It’s not about which language is closer to my heart, but I would like to work in languages that I speak.”
