Radhika made her full-fledged acting debut in Bollywood with 'Shor in the City' in 2011 but since then she kept herself busy in regional films and documentaries.
    
"I have done commercial movies in regional cinema but Badlapur' is my first Bollywood film after 'Shor...'. I am hoping my image of an art house movie actress will be broken by this film. I can't talk about my part because it is a thriller and the makers have kept it secret. But it is a very interesting character," Radhika said.
    
The 29-year-old actress said she and Varun hit it off instantly and she learnt a lot from him.
    
"We both come from different backgrounds and have been typecast in different ways. He is known as a commercial actor while I am called a serious actress, so it was great that we both came along and learnt so much from each other. Varun and I are keen on doing all kinds of cinema. He is a passionate actor and it was amazing working with him," she said.
    
Radhika, who was last seen in Marathi film 'Lai Bhaari', opposite actor Riteish Deshmukh, said she wants to do both regional and Hindi cinema.
    
Besides 'Badlapur', releasing on February 20, Radhika has a number of Bollywood films hitting theatres this year, including Ajay Devgn's maiden International co-production 'Parched' and 'Hunterr', produced by Anurag Kashyap.
    
"'Parched' is directed by Leena Yadav. I always wanted to work with a female director so I am happy that I was a part of the film. The role I have in 'Parched' is different from anything I have done so far while I feel 'Hunterrr' is going to be a very entertaining film," she said.

Radhika admires actresses Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan and Kangana Ranaut as she feels they have taken risks in the male dominated industry.
    
"I would really like to do something like what Kangana did in 'Queen' or Vidya in 'Kahaani'. Priyanka was great in 'Mary Kom'. 'Queen' and 'Kahaani' were box-office successes too. I think every actress would love to do such films," she said.
