TAKING A BREAK IS IMPORTANT: APTE
Radhika says that an actor needs time to recharge their batteries
Actor Radhika Apte (above), who had close to five releases both in Bollywood and regional films in the past year, says she wants to take a break.
“I’m taking it easy. It’s part of my job. Sometimes, you need to take a break to read or travel and get inspiration to recharge your batteries. It’s part of the process,” says Radhika, who was seen in films, such as, Parched, Phobia and the Tamil film Kabali.
The actor, who made her Bollywood debut with the film Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi! (2005) says that over the years, the kind of roles being offered to her have changed. “Nowadays, a variety of characters are being offered to me. This, however (the kind of roles offered) keeps changing with the body of work that I do,” says Radhika, who will be seen alongside actor Akshay Kumar in Padman.
Even after completing 12 years in the industry and facing the camera, Radhika says that she still gets tensed on the first day of her shoot. “Of course, I get nervous. And I’ll get nervous even at the age of 60. Portraying a new character, each time, is a difficult job and to perform well, one needs to question oneself,” says Radhika. ■ firstname.lastname@example.org
