New Delhi, Aug 21: Bollywood actress Radhika Apte, who gained lot of appreciation for her work in Sujoy Ghosh’s short-film ‘Aahalya’, said that getting compliments for her role in that short-film was a surprise.
The ‘Badlapur’ actress said that before Sujoy’s experiment with her, no one thought she could carry off the look and the character.
She said: “First of all I will say I am really bad at taking compliments. If somebody gives me compliment my heart starts pumping. For me, the biggest compliment was to know that people are liking me in ‘Aahalya’.”
“No one ever had the confidence that I could carry off such role. People thought I am not conventionally good looking and other stuff you get to hear in the industry. Sujoy put his trust in me and thankfully I stood up on that,” she added.
The 29-year-old actress has acted opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui in ‘Manjhi-The Mountain Man’, which is a story about love and struggle.
In an age when actresses want to hide their marital status from public, Bollywood actress Radhika Apte is fearless and quite vocal about her marital status.
She told a news agency: “So many of my friends believe that if they are married they shouldn’t tell about it and even I have been told many times to not talk about my marriage but I really don’t believe in the stupid image that if you are married you are not desirable.”
“I think that is very illogical and offensive. I am very open about my marital status because it doesn’t have to do anything with my work,” she said.
The actress, who has been spotted in multi-lingual movies, believes in work which excites her.
