Radhika Apte mobbed in Kashmir on Vettriselvan shoot

After an impressive debut in Tamil with RGV's Rattha Charithram which was followed by Prakash Raj's Dhoni, Radhika Apte is all set to sizzle as a commercial heroine in Vettriselvan, which has Ajmal as the lead protagonist.

Directed by popular ad-filmmaker Rudhran, the actress faced a nightmarish incident while shooting for a song near Pahalgam in Jammu-Kashmir.

Explains Rudhran, "After many years, a Tamil film shooting is happening there. We were canning a solo song of Radhika where she had to wear a mini skirt for the dance. In no time, a huge crowd had gathered there, went berserk and started taking pictures on their mobile phone.

“When my crew tried to prevent them from doing so, they got annoyed and one of them shouted 'this is Kashmir! Indians should not shoot here.' We immediately packed off Radhika to her vanity van and cancelled the day's shoot."

Heaping praises on Radhika's dedication Rudhran said, "Despite language problem Radhika is a 'single take' artiste. Even if it is two page dialogues, she would get her act okayed in one take."

While Ajmal is a medical student Radhika plays a criminal lawyer. Though the child actress Taruni Sachdev, who essays Radhika's younger sister died recently in Nepal plane crash, the director sentimentally wants to retain her portions in the film shot already.

Vettriselvan is a romantic thriller and Mani Sharma's songs have come out well, he concludes.
