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. ■ an­juri.na­yar@htlive.com
