Radhika Apte shares her experience and prep on working with robots for the first time for her upcoming show
Bollywood actress Radhika Apte will be next seen in her upcoming show Ok Computer. The film is India's first sci-fi comedy, which will show Radhika working closely with robots in a futuristic world.
Talking about her experience working with robots for the first time, Radhika said, "Working with the robots was really very fun, I have never really been so interested in A.I. or machines in my life and ever indulged in that idea. So when we had scenes where I just had to talk to robots in the series, the robots felt so innocent and harmless and you could just fall in love with them, they are very friendly and very helpful."
She further added, "Neil, one of our writer/directors he used to always give their cues and talk as the robots and so it was very endearing and I actually really really enjoyed the very few scenes I had only with robots and the machines were so innovative in the series and they looked so interesting very friendly and innocent and harmless. It is quite interesting and it has developed an interest in me about the machines and A.I.”
In the film, Radhika's look will have a split high pony, wearing tracksuits; her character name is Laxmi Suri, a girl who loves robots over humans and talks about them all day long.
Radhika is also the head of PETER, which stands for People for Ethical Treatment for Robot Everywhere, an organisation to protect robot rights.
