Radhika Apte, who has surprised the audience with every new film and every new role, ranging from short films to a commercial potboiler with Rajnikanth, is gearing up for five film releases this year. She talks to Prachi Pinglay-Plumber about her choices, her journey so far and about how she’d rather work than spend time promoting her films.
You have acted in a wide variety of films over the last couple of years, what are the deciding factors for you when you pick a project?
They’re not the same for every project. The factors keep changing. Different things apply to different projects. Sometimes there are people you want to work with. Sometimes the script is good or the part is very exciting. And sometimes the production house is very good. Commercial viability, monetary prospects...all these considerations are there. If it excites me or challenges me, I do it.
Your next film, PadMan, is about an innovator-activist, played by Akshay...
