Radhika Apte talks about her directorial debut

OTT queen, Radhika Apte is known well known for her acting skills and diverse filmography. In an attempt to expand her skill set, Radhika decided to try hands at direction. The trailer of her short film 'The Sleepwalkers' was released at Palms Spring International Short Film Festival. The film is headlined by Gulshan Devaiah and Shahana Goswami.

Radhika had a conversation about her first directorial venture with TOI. She shared, "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."

She further explained, "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."

Radhika's recent outing was in 'Ok Computer' which well recieved by the critics. She'll soon be seen as an undercover agent in 'Mrs Undercover'.
