Radhika Apte will be next seen in Eros International and VikiRajani’s psychological thriller Phobia, directed by Pavan Kirpalani.
The talented actress, who’s riding high on the success of Manjhi: The Mountain Man, Hunterr and Badlapur released last year, will be seen facing her fears in Phobia. Radhika’s character suffers from Agoraphobia (extreme or irrational fear of open or public places) in the film.
Now, to create awareness about this phobia and many others, Radhika has acted in a special digital series.
A source says, “Radhika has already shot for about 10-12 special series of videos. In each video, the actress will be seen talking about different phobias ranging from panophobia (fear of the unknown), astraphobia (fear of thunderstorms) and nyctophobia (fear of darkness) to aerophobia (fear of flying) and arachnophobia (fear of spiders).” These videos will be released online on a daily basis.
Phobia focuses on the central character, Mehak, (Radhika) an artist by profession, who has her entire life upside down when she accidentally dozez off in a taxi one night.
Radhika informs, “While preparing for my character, I got to know about the different phobias that people suffer from. Through these videos, I want to create awareness about them, so that people understand them better.”
