‘Parched’ actress Radhika Apte is star-struck by Tamil superstar Rajinikanth.
“There is no bigger star than him (Rajinikanth)…. It is because he is so humble, simple. He is so sincere and hard working. It is incredible to observe his hard work and I have had a great time working with Rajini sir,” she said at the launch of Amego, a health-related app in Mumbai.
The actress who starred opposite the superstar in Kabali says he helped her overcome the problem of Tamil during the shooting of the film by conversing with her in English and Marathi.
Asked if she spoke to Rajinikanth in Marathi as she did not know Tamil, Radhika said she introduced herself to the superstar in Marathi, but conversed in English during the shooting of the blockbuster,
“We conversed in English, but the first question I asked him was if he knew Marathi or not, and he spoke to me in Marathi and I was very happy to converse in Marathi,” the 31-year-old actor said.
Rajinikanth’s mother tongue is Marathi and he was born into a Marathi family.
Asked what was the conversation in Marathi, Radhika said, “I just said that do you speak Marathi, and he said yes, yes I do speak a bit of Marathi because I am from Belgaon (Belgavi in Karnataka).
Rajnikanth conversed with her in English during the shooting of Kabali, and always translated the instructions given by Director Pa Ranjith during “stressed-out” situations.
Radhika is appearing in a couple of more films this year. After the success of Phobia and receiving critical reviews for Parched, the actor is prepping up for another Tamil film, Ula and in Hindi film, starring Harshvardhan Kapoor, Bhavesh Joshi. – CINEWS
