MUMBAI: Actress Radhika Apte, who played megastar Rajinikanth’s wife in the record-breaking film “Kabali”, apologised to the media for not being part of the promotions, something she termed “unfortunate” as she was shooting for another film.
Present at the Vogue Beauty Awards, Radhika was asked about her absence during the promotions of “Kabali”.
She responded, “I know, I am really sorry. Actually I am shooting for a film called ‘Ghoul’ and ‘Kabali’ release was decided suddenly and my shooting is so tight that everyday I was trying to make phone calls and shoot (for promotions), but it’s so unfortunate.”
“Kabali” reportedly grossed almost Rs 250 crore in five days only in India and is also doing well abroad, with the satellite and other rights also going for big amounts.
About the success of the film, she said, “I think it’s breaking all records; it is really amazing. I had a great time working with him (Rajinikanth); I think it was one of the best experiences I have had. I did have a feeling that the film will do well because of the subject, so very happy, very ecstatic.”
Even before “Kabali”, Radhika has acted in numerous films down South. Will her next also be a South Indian film?
“Till now I have not decided anything, after the shoot of my current film, I will take a break and then I will decide what I will do next,” she said.
Radhika was also seen in “Phobia” and the short film “Kriti” this year.
