Ritika Singh made her debut in the role of a boxer alongside R Madhavan in the 2016 Tamil film Irudhi Suttru. The film was also simultaneously shot in Hindi and was released as Saala Khadoos.
Since then, the Mumbai-based actor has shared screen space with Vijay Sethupathi and Yogi Babu in the 2016 satire Andavan Kattalai. She has also worked alongside Telugu star Venkatesh in Guru (2017) and was last seen in the Tamil romantic fantasy film Oh My Kadavule (2020).
The actor, who is also a trained Mixed Martial Artist, is now appearing in a survivalist-thriller titled In Car. The film’s trailer shows a young woman Sakshi (Ritika) who is abducted by a bunch of men in Haryana and details her mental and physical ordeal as she awaits her fate.
In Car feels urgent in its themes of women's safety and crimes against them. Talking about feeling unsafe as a woman in the country she said, “I feel scared all the time. It is part of being a woman. I don’t think there is any woman who feels safe on the street at night.”
Sharing an experience she said, “I was taking a cab recently from Kalyan to Mumbai and the driver went away from the car to relieve himself. All this time he was away, I kept on thinking ‘What if somebody enters the car?’ As a woman, I don’t think you are safe anywhere.”
Directed by Harsh Warrdhan, the film will release in five different languages: Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam on March 3.
