Vishal Bhardwaj was quoted saying in an interview that Radhika is fantastic. In a statement to Mumbai Mirror, he had said, “Sanya and Radhika are fantastic. They are youthful and completely untouched by the world of glamour. Their energy is infectious as well. They come to my office to discuss the film and soon I am as energetic as them. I am consumed by a very different kind of excitement that takes me back to my Makdee days. I am looking forward to directing Sanya and Radhika.” ALSO READ: Sanya Malhotra Finalised Opposite Aditya Roy Kapur In Mohit Suri’s Next?
