In the two-minute spoof video Omnipresent, released on YouTube today, Apte and director Vikramaditya Motwane talk about Apte’s new Netflix film
Netflix, which is known to have an ace social media team, has capitalized on the recent criticism of Radhika Apte’s seeming omnipresence on the streaming platform by casting the actress in every role of an upcoming film.
In the two-minute spoof video Omnipresent, released on YouTube today, Apte and director Vikramaditya Motwane talk about Apte’s new Netflix film, in which she plays a repressed villager, a virtuous social activist, a corporate oppressor, and then some.
Three of Radhika Apte’s releases this year have been on Netflix: the anthology film “Lust Stories” the first season of the web series “Sacred Games” and the mini-series “Ghoul”. Several tweets, Facebook posts and memes have circulated about Apte as Netflix’s go-to heroine.
Some netizens, in response, have pointed out that an actress of Apte’s caliber was welcome to make as many screen appearances as she wanted to. Her next theatrical release is Sriram Raghavan’s “Andhadhun” for the Viacom18 studio in October.
Netflix lobes it back to the meme makers by tweeting: “Whatever the role fits to her, Radhika Apte will be there in Netflix.”
