Radhika Apte is quite the powerhouse of talent. She is known to be experimental in her choices and gives her nod to very few films. Apte is one such actress who has not just always been a favourite of the critics but is now also gaining more popularity with her commercial ventures.
Her filmi platter is full this year with her portraying a deglamorized look in Pad Man, opposite Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor, followed by Baazaar that will see her dolled up for the role, also featuring Saif Ali Khan, Chitrangda Singh and debutant Rohan Mehra. She has just completed Anurag Kashyap's short film for the Love and Lust anthology and is looking forward to films with Dev Patel and Sriram Raghavan next.
Yes, you read it right. Radhika will soon be seen in a movie with Academy Award nominee Dev Patel. "Yes, I'm doing a film with Dev which I will announce soon," she told Mumbai Mirror, without revealing details about the film.
A source has confirmed, “It’s a very unusual script and Radhika has been approached for it. She will be seen with Dev in the film, which is being perceived as an indie project. The duo will start shooting for the movie soon.”
Dev, who was nominated for an Oscar last year for his film Lion, will soon be seen in a film about the 2008 Mumbai terror attack. Hotel Mumbai is based on the book Surviving Mumbai by Victoria Midwinter Pitt, and also stars Armie Hammer.
