Actress Radhika Apte reminisces about one of the most important films of her career, Sriram Raghavan's 2015 film, Badlapur. The actress believes that this superhit film played an essential part in changing the audience's perception of her.
In an interview with a leading magazine, Radhika shared:
"Badlapur was sort of right in between for me because it had a lot of content and it was also for the normal audience and so I think, people saw me in a different light.”
Based on the novel Death's Dark Abyss by Italian writer Massimo Carlotto, the film stars Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead roles, with Huma Qureshi, Yami Gautam, Vinay Pathak, Divya Dutta and Radhika Apte in key roles.
Radhika who played Kanchan "Koko" Khatri in the action thriller film adds:
“What’s nice is when you have a smaller role, but people still talk about your performance. I find that particularly rewarding. So, I think things started changing slowly after Badlapur, which turned out to be a massive turning point in my career. As an actor, you’re always looking for a confidence boost. And Badlapur provided that."
Radhika is one of the leading actresses of Bollywood today, who has made a big name for herself with her unparalleled craft in indie films to OTT as well as the commercial films. Badlapur was one of the most important milestones of her career that showed us that the actress is a great fit for any kind of films and roles.
Radhika was recently seen in the sci-fi comedy, Ok Computer in yet another unique role garnering bouts of praises on her performance. She will next be seen in Mrs. Undercover.
