There couldn't be a more obvious choice when it came to picking the Breakthrough Artist at the iReel Awards 2019.
Radhika Apte made her debut in the 2005 movie ‘Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi’, co-starring Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao. But before entering the showbiz this is how her story looked like-
- TRUE CALLING: Born into a family of doctors, Radhika had different plans for herself unlike her parents. She pursued Economics and Mathematics in college in Pune where she lived. Over the course, she realized that theatre and stage performance was her true calling. She soon moved to London to study contemporary dance and movement analysis.
- BREAKTHROUGH: After returning to India, she performed in several Marathi plays and short movies before appearing on the big screen. In 2011, Apte appeared in Ekta Kapoor`s I AM and Shor In The City, and both were critically well-received. She played the role of Mehak in Phobia, a psychological thriller for which she received several accolades from the audience and critics alike.
- WORLD OF WEB SERIES: Radhika is partly responsible for raising the bar of Indian shows on the digital platform. She delivered exceptional performances in Sacred Games, Lust Stories, and Ghoul for which she received much fame and recognition from the world.
From full-fledged commercial movies to web series, she has proved herself to be a versatile and an all-rounded actor. She manages to fit into the diverse roles, seamlessly. She is undoubtedly a powerhouse of talent and my inspiration. By taking up unconventional roles, speaking up on gender disparity in pay and the unequal opportunities, and opening up about her experiences in her patriarchal world of the cinema industry, she proved that she is not only an exceptional star but also a brave one.
