Actress Radhika Apte, who has styled up with spunky bangs for her forthcoming release Badlapur, has chosen to go de-glam for her next movie Hunterrr.
While she will be seen playing an edgy character in
Badlapur, which releases this Friday; Hunterrr,
which hits the screen exactly a month after the former, will see
Radhika play a non-glam version of herself.
Radhika was briefed during the narration that her character

day of the shoot when she arrived to see there wasn't vanity of any
kind on the sets. She was amused to see there was no appointed hair
or makeup person for her, and then her director explained the

"Any actor who is told to go de-glam obviously feels
apprehensive for a quick second but I have done this before, so I
was convinced sooner. I think my apprehension was that because I
have done this earlier I didn't want to be typecast.
"Also, given the plot of the film, I think I went in expecting
something slightly glamorous. But the director was really
particular about sticking to the look.
"We had to especially craft the looks in a way so as to
accommodate a no hair and makeup feel to suit my character's need.
Obviously everyone was being nice and tried to talk me into it. But
later I realised it wasn't a typecast whatsoever and I was totally
on the same wavelength as the director."
Hunterrr itself is said to be a coming-of-age film which revolves around an unassuming sex addict and his lustful journey through life. Directed by Harshavardhan Kulkarni, it also stars Gulshan Devaiah.
