Actress Radhika Apte Comments On Her Idea of Choosing Films

Radhika's versatile performances in her more than a decade-long career has made her stand out

Known for featuring in several social issue-based movies like “Parched” and “Padman”, and for voicing her opinion on issues like menstrual hygiene and women safety, actress Radhika Apte says ultimately it is the story of a film which grabs her attention.

“I did ‘Padman’ not only because of its social message. I did it because it was a good story. I run after good stories. If I did not like the story of ‘Padman’, and if it was imparting the same message, I probably would not have done it.

“I am not here to do films with just social messages. I am an actor. I want to be a part of stories,” Radhika Apte told IANS here.

After riding high on the success of a web show like “Sacred Games” and “Lust Stories”, and a movie like “AndhaDhun”, the 33-year-old actress, who has broken the stereotypical image of Indian heroines by portraying unconventional and bold roles on the big screen, has featured in a mainstream and glamorous role in Gauravv K. Chawla’s just-released “Baazaar”.

In the film, she plays an ambitious city girl who can do anything to achieve success and fame.

“I have not done such mainstream role before this. It was challenging for me as a lot of efforts were put into the glamour portion and style, and it was tough to keep the drama real,” she explained.

Radhika’s versatile performances in her more than a decade-long career has made her stand out.

She said she likes to be surprised and is open to all genres as long as “work is good and challenging”.
