You are at Radhika Apte: I don't want to be typecast

Radhika Apte: I don't want to be typecast

Radhika Apte, who was last seen in Balakrishna's Legend, has her hands full these days. Although she hasn't signed any Telugu film since, the actress has films in multiple languages. "I've just wrapped up the shoot for Sriram Raghavan's Badlapur and next month, I'll begin shooting for a Malayalam film with Fahadh Faasil," Radhika reveals. Ask her if there's any truth in the rumour that she has a line-up 14 films this year alone, she laughs it off saying, "I think it's highly exaggerated. The thing is I've been working continuously ever since I came back from London in late 2011 after a brief sabbatical. I'm quite instinctive about what I do and there's no strategy behind my choice of roles. More importantly, I don't want to be typecast." 

She is eager to do a lot more international co-productions. "Not all mainstream films are content driven and the focus is more on entertainment. Of late, I've been doing a lot of international films like Rohit Batra's The Field, Leena Yadav's Parched and Ketan Mehta's Manjhi: The Mountain Man. I'm open to all kinds of roles because you wouldn't know what you are good at, otherwise." 

Prior to debuting in films, Radhika acted in a lot of plays and her tryst with theatre and dance, isn't going to end anytime soon. "Last year, I was part of a wonderful Marathi play named Uney Purey Shahar Ek, which was an adaptation of Girish Karnad's Benda Kaalu on Toast (Baked Beans of Toast) and I am also planning to do an English play soon in London," she shares.
