I am choosy about my roles


Mumbai: Post the success of ‘Badlapur’, actress Radhika Apte says she is not on a signing spree and does not mind waiting for a unique character to come her way.

Radhika, 29, who will be next seen in adult comedy ‘Hunterrr’, says her biggest fear is about getting typecast.

“It’s a conscious effort to not repeat myself and play varied roles. I am choosy about my roles and in that case sometimes I have to reject many films and wait for a long time land new characters. I feel there is no point in doing similar roles ” Radika told PTI.

In ‘Hunterrr ‘, she appears as the girl-next-door and the actress says her role is the opposite of what she did in her last release.

“My role in ‘Hunterrr’ is extremely different to what I played in ‘Badlapur’, which was a difficult story. ‘Hunterrr’ is a very unusual and funny story of a common man. I play one of the love interests of our main lead, Gulshan Deviah. My character’s name is Trupti, who is very middle class and is a girl-next-door,” she says.

The film is an adult comedy feels but Radhika is confident that the film will do well.

“We are exposed to all kind of films these days and I don’t think this is the first time an adult comedy is releasing. This is a very practical film,” she says.

Starting her Bollywood journey with Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Rakta Charitra’, Radhika also starred in Bengali, Marathi, Telugu and Tamil films.

Though she got a new recognition post her stint in ‘Badlapur’, Radhika feels she has a long way to go.

“Life has just been the same… I got a very positive response for my role. I am lucky that people noticed my part in ‘Badlapur’ despite the fact that the film had an ensemble cast. It feels nice.”

After being a part of multi-starrer films, Radhika will be next seen in ‘Mountain Man’ and ‘Kaun Kitne Pani Main’ as solo heroine.
