Short films let you experiment more: Rad­hika Apte

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - IANS

Ac­tor Rad­hika Apte (left), whose short film Ahalya cre­ated quite a buzz re­cently, con­sid­ers the genre “great” for ex­per­i­men­ta­tion and tal­ent.

“Short films are a great plat­form be­cause pro­duc­tion cost is much lower as com­pared to a fea­ture film. And you can experiment much more be­cause very less is at stake. If a lot of peo­ple start watch­ing short films, it will be good for a lot of artistes,” says the ac­tor.

Rad­hika’s ca­reer in showbiz started with the theatre troupe Aasakta. She made her fea­ture film de­but in the Hindi film Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi! (2005), and also had a part in Ben­gali film An­ta­heen (2009). Her choice of roles is dif­fer­ent, but Rad­hika main­tains that she doesn’t like to “dif­fer­en­ti­ate be­tween com­mer­cial cin­ema and art­house cin­ema”.

“I’m try­ing to do a va­ri­ety of films and roles. I just like not to be cat­e­gorised,” she says. .

The ac­tor, who’s worked with ac­claimed film­mak­ers, said she wants to work with the same peo­ple again. “Anurag Kashyap, Anurag Basu, Su­joy Ghosh, Sri­ram Ragh­van, Harsh, Ketan Me­hta and Leena Ya­dav... I have worked with these peo­ple and I’d like to work with them again,” said the ac­tor.
