The actress achieved her dream by working on Kabali...
Working with Rajinikanth is a dream for any actor or actress and Radhika Apte is one of those lucky few who got a chance to work with the Thailava. The actress, who is riding high on a string on successful films, is part of Rajinikanth's most ambitious project - Kabali. The film is all set to release in 3 days and she can't control her excitement. The actress' dream is complete, but she never thought she would get this opportunity ever. As she told Mumbai Mirror, "To be honest I'd not even dreamt of it."
The actress' experience with the South superstar has been pleasant from the first meeting. She remembers how she met him for the first time during a photo shoot. He was in his vanity van, so Radhika asked his manager if she could meet him. Rajinikanth was told about her request and he immediately came out to receive her. "It was a great gesture. We chatted, had random conversation, we chilled right from first connect. He spoke to me in Marathi on the first day of the shoot, " Radhika recalls.
But even thought they had broken the ice in the first meet itself, Radhika was both excited and nervous about sharing screen space with Rajinikanth. But on the sets, he turned out to be very warm and humble, something which most actresses don't see these days. As she explains to the tabloid, "He (Rajinikanth) speaks to you as if you're his equal so there's no pressure and you don't feel stressed."
So, the actress didn't have pressure from the actor but the thousands of fans that flock to the sets to see the superstar does add some pressure. But it was only in Malaysia that Radhika realised what a huge star Rajinikanth is. During a particular shoot, quite a few fans thronged to the sets of Kabali and hung out throughout the whole day, screaming every time they spotted him. She recalls, "He would acknowledge them with a smile and a wave and I would absorb the fan worship."
Looks like Radhika is completely smitten by Rajinikanth's humble nature and super stardom! We hope to see some fabulous performance by both of them in the film now. Are you excited about Kabali?
