Radhika Apte, who has bagged a rare opportunity to play the lead heroine in Rajinikanth’s next untitled film, says she will be doing some research work for the film. “I’m extremely humbled they thought of me; it’s an amazing opportunity to work with a legend like him. Only three actresses from Bollywood have had the honour of acting with Rajinikanth, and I’m thrilled to be in such elite company! I can’t say much about the movie for now, but I will be doing some research for the role,” says Radhika.
“My last Tamil film was over a year ago, and I need to start from scratch all over again to get a grip on the language. I’ll be travelling to Chennai very soon to meet Rajinikanth in person, and I’m pretty thrilled about it,” adds Radhika.
Directed by Ranjith and produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu, the film will go on floors later this month. Santhosh Narayanan composes music.
