Speaking to IANS, the actor said that the film's USP is its genre. "It's a very different genre than what we normally see. It is about this character's journey to find self worth and saying no to people treating her badly, setting her boundaries. I think, we all struggle with self confidence, self worth, love. And I think that's our perpetual journey. So that's how I relate to the character as well."
Radhika also added that men should change their way of thinking as many of them think they don't need to do household work. Nothing that initially, people and housewives themselves think that they have limited potential, the actor added that this perspective is changing as more women are pushing themselves to pursue their dreams.
About her upcoming films, she said, "I've just finished a British project. I have another American film and then a Hindi film coming up, I'll announce that soon."
Directed and written by debutante director, Anushree Mehta, Mrs Undercover features Radhika Apte also stars Sumeet Vyas, Rajesh Sharma and Saheb Chatterjee. It is currently streaming on Zee5.
