'I play a bindaas and a compulsive flirt'

Radhika Pandit is super excited about two things — one working with director Yograj Bhat for the first time and another, the success of her latest release Addhuri.


She is playing a flirt in Bhat’s ‘Drama’. “My role has given me an opportunity to explore another side of the actor in me. It’s quite challenging and I have really worked hard to get my act right in the film,” Radhika tells Metrolife.


Talking more about her role, she says, “I play a character who is bindass and a compulsive flirt. I don’t know why Yograj sir thought I could carry off this character really well but I am glad he trusted me with this role.”


She points out that the first schedule was largely shot in Mysore and the second part was shot along the Konkan coast, “As the film wore on, I realised that I’m enjoying playing the character and perfecting the art of flirting. I had to, literally, wear that kind of attitude on my sleeve and do everything like a flirt,” she notes.

About working with Yograj, Radhika says that she always learns something from every co-star and director she has worked with. She adds, “Yogaraj Bhat as person is chilled out and fun to be with just like his movies.

He’s calm, composed and there’s never a moment when you will find him over-excited. There’s a lot to learn from him,” she observes. And Radhika says that there’s an element of Yograj in every aspect of the film.


“He’s knowledgable and well-informed but he makes no bones about it. That’s the best thing,” she adds.


 Radhika has teamed with director Suri in Kaddipudi, meaning tobacco. So will she wield a cigarette and grab a lot of eyeballs just like one of her costars did recently in a film? “Oh no, I am playing a sari and pavadai davani clad girl with absolutely no make-up – bang opposite to how I look in ‘Drama’. It’s nice to be playing different shades and characters all the time,” she concludes.
