Radhika Apte who will next be seen as a WWII spy in Hollywood film, Liberte: A Call to Spy reveals a startling difference between working for Bollywood and Hollywood. The 33-year-old actress who has essayed roles in both the two industries for her role as British spy, Noor Inayat Khan aka Nora Baker said, “I believe that preparing for a character includes almost all aspects of acquiring knowledge — information about the subject, reading up extensively about the story in question and even related stories that influence my character, balancing out the visceral side of her, so on and so forth.”
“A lot of reading material was passed onto me by writers and producers on-board,” she adds.
As for working with Hollywood, she added, “I think every director and production house has their own way of working. People are very punctual there. And they pay you on time. You don’t have to beg them for money.”
Radhika Apte unveiled her look as the British spy, Noor Inayat Khan,for the war drama last month. The film also stars Sarah Meghan Thomas who has also written the script, with Stana Katic, Linus Roache, Rossif Sutherland to name a few. Oscar-nominated director Lydia Dean Pilcher has helmed the film.
The forthcoming film based on true incidents will reportedly take us back 75 years ago in World War II when Winston Churchill creates a spy organisation 'SOE' in order to disturb the Nazi war machine.
Apart from the Lydia Dean Pilcher drama, Radhika will also be seen alongside Nawazuddin Siddiqui in 'Raat Akeli Hai'. The shooting for the film wrapped up in April.
