"As an artist, I really like to push the envelope. You want to do work that really challenges you. So, when Netflix came to me with another offer, I was a bit reluctant," Apte said
She also said that Netflix and Vikramaditya Motwane made her an offer she could not refuse.
"Vid calls me one day and says that Radhika what if you play every character in this film. That got my attention. Because that is a challenge I cannot turn down," she adds. From playing a repressed villager to a virtuous social activist to a corporate oppressor, Apte is literally playing every character in her 'next venture'.
Netflix did not stop there, they also unveiled a poster of the Netflix Original Film Omnipresent that stars Radhika Apte. The Parched actress has written, directed and composed music for the movie. And no brownie points for guessing who made the poster!
