Radhika makes for the perfect cover girl; she’s cool and composed, and poses for the camera like a pro.The fierce and feisty actress is a firm believer in the concept of a healthy mind, body and soul connect. From the time she stepped on to the set till the time we sat down for the interview, it was one happy, smooth-sailing ride. Radhika is not your regular celebrity who comes with her coterie of fussy managers, overstressed stylists and ludicrous demands. But rather she is just like us, who believes in being her unapologetic self, be it in reel or real life. Catch the conversation as she talks about her unexpected journey in Bollywood, keeping the audience on their toes, and her greatest indulgences while maintaining her fitness regimen.
