Working on a film is a time-consuming process and that is why actor Disha Patani believes one has to really be excited about the projects they take up. The “fun” element in Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, along with director Prabhudheva and Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, made Patani say yes to the action film, that is streaming on multiple platforms, including OTT and DTH services, from Thursday.
The 28-year-old actor plays Diya, an independent woman and the sister of Abhyankar (Jackie Shroff), senior of police officer Radhe (Khan). “Making a film takes a lot of time from six months to a year, maybe, so you better like what you are doing. In the case of Radhe, I liked the script. It is a fun, massy film. I like watching such movies.
I haven't done a massy film before. I was very excited to be working on this film. Besides, to have a great director and a major star is like an added bonus,” she told PTI. At a time when theatres are shut in many parts of the country owing to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Bareilly-born Patani said it is a “blessing” to have her film up for a release. Radhe was earlier scheduled to arrive in theatres on May 22 last year but was delayed due to the pandemic. A lot of effort has gone into the making of the film, Patani said, adding it feels right to bring out Radhe right to the audience in the comfort and safety of their homes. Life is at a standstill, it seems that time has stopped. We don’t know what is going to happen. Last year went and passed by. You don’t remember much of it.
I feel it is a blessing to have a release and I am more than happy and grateful that the film is finally releasing in the best possible way.” The actor, who previously worked with Khan in Bharat (2019), said she has become comfortable with the star after collaborating for the second time. “I was initially intimidated by Salman sir. He is the biggest star of the country. With time we got comfortable and it has been a great experience working with him. He is so humble and helpful,” she added. (PTI) n
