Radhika Apte feels she was exploited while working on this film  

Actress Radhika Apte is a truly brilliant artist. With every film she does, she tries to explore and push forward her limitations. Wheather it's a commercial film, indie film or or a digital project, Radhika always tries to do something new with her characters. However, just like every other star, she also had difficulties during initial phase of her career. Looking back, she feels that she was exploited while working on Ram Gopal Varma's 'Rakta Charitra'.

She said, "They told me I'd be doing one film but then they made me shout in Tamil and Telugu as well. So, I was like okay, this is a lot of work and commitment. The film had big actors and the shoots would never start on time. I have never been desperate for work. So, I didn't feel like I needed to endure long hours on the set when my time and talent wasn't being optimised."

During this time, Radhika even started to have doubts about her career path. She further added, "Having said that I am a big Ram Gopal Varma fan, especially of Rangeela and Satya. I was excited about the opportunity to learn from him on set. And while we, as a team, did have fun, the culture of favoritism and exploitation (of time) was prevalent. I was naive at the time so I didn't say much but this episode made me realise the importance of having my time respected. I learned to put my foot down."
