Commercial viability necessary for an actor: Radhika Apte
In her <g data-gr-id="20">ten year-long</g> career in Bollywood, actor Radhika Apte has had a mixed bag of big small budget films, but she believes at the end of the day an actor needs commercial viability.
Apte, 29, who started her Bollywood career with Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi! in 2005, before turning heads with this year’s box-office success Badlapur, feels commercial movies provide actors with a reach which is necessary.
“A commercial movie is not a statement to prove anything to an audience, but it gives the actor a certain amount of reach. Unless you reach, how will things happen. It is a calculation at the end of the day where you not only need to be good at your job but also should have commercial viability to be cast in films.
“You cannot juts make films, invest crores and get nothing in return. So it is a balance of both,” she said. The actor was praised for her performance for her mysterious turn in Sujoy Ghosh’s short film Ahalya.
