Radhika Apte has donned many different characters when it comes to her films. Now, she has donned the hat of a director for her debut short film, The Sleepwalkers. The actress-turned-director released the teaser of the film during the lockdown at the Palms Spring International Short Film Festival. The film features Shahana Goswami and Gulshan Devaiah.
In a recent interview with a leading publication, the actress spoke about making her directorial debut:
I had never thought of making films. There was no such plan. I just had the urge to write because sometimes you want to create content that challenges you. Roles that come your way are not necessarily from the space that you want them to come from. I just wanted to write something that interested me. There are things that I passionately want to do. When I bounced off the story to Honey Trehan and Abhishek Chaubey, they decided to make it. I had 10 days for the prep and shoot. When I finished writing, I realised I didn’t want to act in it, but I wanted to direct it. And, I absolutely loved the process.
I, for sure, cannot wait to see the magic Radhika has weaved behind the camera, this time around!
On the work front, she was last seen in the recently released sci-fi comedy series, OK Computer, and was appreciated for her performance in it. She will next be seen in ‘Mrs Undercover’ and will be playing the role of a housewife who turns into an undercover agent.
