Radhika Apte is one of the most talented Indian actresses. We have seen Radhika portraying different roles for her films and getting praised for it.
Now she is all set to become a filmmaker, the actress released her directorial debut The Sleepwalkers' trailer in the lockdown at Palms Spring International short film festival which won The Best Midnight Short award.
In a recent interview with leading publication, Radhika talked about her short-film, “I had never thought of making films. There was no such plan. I just had the urge to write because sometimes you want to create content that challenges you. Roles that come your way are not necessarily from the space that you want them to come from. I just wanted to write something that interested me. There are things that I passionately want to do. When I bounced off the story to Honey Trehan and Abhishek Chaubey, they decided to make it. I had 10 days for the prep and shoot. When I finished writing, I realised I didn’t want to act in it, but I wanted to direct it. And, I absolutely loved the process.”
The trailer of her short-film has been getting positive responses from internet users.
Radhika's performance in OK Computer was widely appreciated. Next, she will be seen in Mrs Undercover playing the role of a housewife who turns Undercover agent.
