Dis­tract­ing!

Savvy - - Woman Savvy -

“Rasika is ac­tu­ally a huge source of in­spi­ra­tion for me. The ded­i­ca­tion and fo­cus with which she ap­proaches her work al­ways leaves me in awe. And, of course, the abil­ity to bounce ideas, thoughts and dis­cuss work is­sues with her is a bless­ing.”

— Mukul Chadda, Raskia’s hus­band

“I had Rasika in mind for Safia (her char­ac­ter in the film ‘Manto) right from the be­gin­ning and I am so glad I did not look for any­one else. She brings a gen­tle dig­nity and strength to Safia’s char­ac­ter that is very nu­anced. She’s a very fine ac­tress and hu­man be­ing. I have thor­oughly en­joyed work­ing with her.” — Nan­dita Das, ac­tress

and film­maker “As a per­son, as an ac­tress, Rasika dis­ori­ents. She con­stantly im­proves on what­ever we might an­tic­i­pate from her. To me, she’s one of the rare ac­tresses who doesn’t se­duce with her beauty. She is con­stantly seek­ing what else within her is beau­ti­ful. That is why she can be scin­til­lat­ing, dig­ni­fied, el­e­gant, and, in her next film, hay­wire, malev­o­lent, fa­tal! With her, there is no eva­sion of life. She is ready to brave what­ever comes her way and thus, till the end, she re­mains free and con­tin­ues to take our breath away with her per­for­mances. She brings us face-to-face with the mys­tery that we eter­nally re­main to our­selves. She re­mains a muse for me and I’m im­pa­tient to work with her again.”

— Anup Singh, film­maker
