Radhika Apte on OK Computer: Excited about my first sci-fi project

Actress Radhika Apte is all set for her upcoming sequence OK Computer. She says she is happy as a result of that is her first sci-fi project. The sequence is produced by Anand Gandhi, director of the acclaimed movie Ship Of Theseus. Gandhi has written the script with Pooja Shetty, and Neil Pagedar, administrators of the present. Radhika stars with Vijay Varma and Jackie Shroff within the sequence that explores themes impressed by present realities and is brimming with wry humour.

“After doing multiple projects in the digital space, I was really excited for my first sci-fi project, especially playing the character of Laxmi — a really cool character who accepts the new future and befriends robots like they are humans, I quite enjoyed playing her,” Radhika stated.

Vijay says his roles have all the time been intense, and he was keen to choose up one thing extra within the house of comedy.

“When the script of ‘OK Computer’ was offered to me, it seemed like it was programmed for me. The research that has been put into this show is outstanding and I couldn’t let go of the opportunity to play the role of Saajan, the anti-technology police officer. It’s quite the opposite in reality as I am usually the one who is enamoured by advancements and technology,” Vijay stated.

He added: “Saajan is carelessly funny and that’s what I love the most about him. I have prepared the longest for this part and made several discoveries, and I hope the audience loves the character just as I do.”

“OK Computer” additionally options Rasika Dugal, Vibha Chibber, Sarang Sathaye, Ratnabali Bhattacharjee, Kani Kusruti amongst others.

Director Pooja Shetty stated that by the point they completed analysis and writing, the script began to resemble a whimsical Ph.D. thesis.

“We wanted to create a plausible, authentic, and accessible future world that also extrapolated the absurdities, joys, and difficulties of present-day India,” Shetty stated.

Her co=director Neil Pagedar added: “OK Computer is a half-a-decade-in-the-making love letter to science fiction. Sci-fi has been used to examine the wispy concepts of life as we know it- from exploring distant reaches of the galaxy to existential risk, to the place of humanity in an infinite cosmos. We wanted to reorient the depiction of sci-fi to the near future.”

Gaurav Banerjee, President and Head (Hindi and English Entertainment), STAR India stated: “Most sci-fi stories tend to paint a grim, western view of what the future looks like. But ‘OK Computer’ is a peek into an India of the future.”
