We caught up with
Radhika Apte, who has completed a hat-trick with Netflix after Lust Stories and
Scared Games, and Manav Kaul, at Taj Land's End. The conversation was chirpy
and both actors were candid in their answers. Radhika and Manav's recent collaboration
Ghoul is the new talk-of-the town.
Radhika Apte Still From Sacred Games, Lust Stories And Ghoul
Here are a few of the things we asked. To begin with, we asked Manav and Radhika what makes Netflix a different place than a commercial cinema. The actress promptly said, “The reach of Netflix has is far larger than mainstream cinema in India. Secondly, the target audience is different. Thirdly, the content is the King. In movies, I guess the star value is important. Also on Netflix, there’s a scope of making series based projects. It generates a lot more employment, it gives a chance to a lot of talent that is out there, which is yet to be explored.“ Manav came in to say, "It is very very different. I go to Netflix every time because, because whatever I see- the content, story line, director everything is top notch. It’s about content. To be a part of Netflix, is something I am very proud of.” WATCH THE FULL INTERVIEW VIDEO BELOW:
The duo even
talked about the differences and similarities between shooting for a web show
and a Bollywood film. Further, we asked them about ‘trolls. While Radhika
denied paying any attention to them, Manav said, “I am a very selfish social
media person. I post my stuff and forget about it.” Radhika continued, “I
don’t care about trolls. I don’t read people’s reactions."
When we ask Radhika if she is scared of ghosts (Ghoul is a horror show) and she came up with a witty reply. “I am scared of people more than I am scared of Ghosts.” Radhika was gung-ho about the success of Sacred Games. Look at the success of Scared Games. It’s just tremendous.”
