Actoress Radhika Apte, who was widely praised for her role in the movie Phobia, has opened up about her film Kabali and her “humble” co-star Rajinikanth.

On being asked what made her accept the role in Kabali, Radhika, 30, was quoted by Flimfare, as saying, “To be honest I’d not even dreamt of it.

But I also knew from the first phone call that even though it’s a commercial film, it was a content-driven one and I had a role that had substance. I wasn’t just there to sing songs. I also like writer-director Pa Ranjith’s sensibilities.”

Talking about her experience working with superstar, Rajinikanth, the Kriti actor was quoted, as saying, “He was warm and friendly from the first day I met him. He treated me with such equality that I never felt nervous. I always felt like a professional actor.”

She added that the Lingaa actor had been very encouraging throughout the journey. Kabali, directed by Pa. Ranjith, has released today and has already been booked solid for the first three days.
