Radhika feels really ecstatic about the fact that the film is doing so well. In one of her recent interviews with IANS, Radhika expressed her happiness about being the film’s director.
Here’s what Radhika said ,”I enjoyed the process (of direction) a lot. I am excited because, hopefully, people can watch it soon. I hope I get to do more work as a director, maybe, let’s see!”
Her short film Sleepwalkers, as the name suggests signifies sleepwalking. Radhika has not just directed the film but also written the script. The movie stars Gulshan Devaiah and Sahana Goswami as lead actors. The two of them get captured in a delusional state of mind who are trying to identify if they are sleepwalking. They are then subjected to face consequences of their willful blindness.
Radhika has given remarkabale performances in a lot of her movies. Her role in Netflix series gave her a lot of popularity among the audience.
