He Kissed Me in my Dreams – Radhika Apte!
Radhika Apte a stellar performer and a versatile actress, who has always chosen to speak up and known for her unconventional choices when it comes to choosing a role. The bold and beautiful actress recently has revealed the childhood fantasy she used to have as 8 years old.
Part of a campaign to encourage women to talk about their fantasies, Radhika has said in a video, “When I was an eight-year-old and my house-help used to watch a lot of Zee Cinema. There used to be these heroines caught in the rain or wind, the pallu would fall off and then the hero would come and kiss her or whatever. There was this boy in my school I liked and I used to fantasize that I am caught in the rain, wearing a sari. My pallu would fall off and then this boy would come. Of course, he never kissed me, but I used to dream and he kissed me in my dreams.”
Radhika also believes that there shouldn’t be any guilt, shame, and taboo associated with female fantasy. “I feel we should be able to talk about our fantasies openly and there is nothing to be ashamed of,” she added in the video.
On the work-side, Radhika has a number of movies in the pipeline including The Wedding Guest, a British-American film with Dev Patel which was released in America and is due to release elsewhere. Radhika Apte has also teamed up with Nawazuddin Siddiqui for her upcoming film Raat Akeli Hai, which will be helmed by Honey Trehan.
