With Sacred Games, Lust Stories and now Ghoul, Radhika Apte is all over Netflix. It is actually safe to call Radhika Apte as Netflix Originals muse. The actress was subject to trolling and some savage memes for being frequently featured by the streaming giant Netflix.
In response to the trolls, Netflix shared a video featuring Radhika and director Vikramaditya Motwane, director of Sacred Games where they mock her “omnipresence”. The caption of the video reads: “Whatever the role, Radhika apt hai.”

Netflix added another tweet about Radhika’s film PadMan, which is now available for streaming, which reads: “Pad Man is now streaming and we’re not just saying this because Radhika Apte is in it but yes Radhika Apte is in it.”

On Wednesday, the restaurant search and food delivery app Zomato tweeted a post on social media comparing Apte to paneer, a go-to food for any vegetarian, as the food delivery platform tried to cash in on the hit trend.

The tweet was in limelight for some time but didn’t last long as Netflix India came with another brilliant response. They picked one letter from the various paneer dishes, and announced ‘Radhika is Omnipresent’.
Well, she is everywhere. pic.twitter.com/XcEw0OjtHf

Netflix has also changed its Instagram bio to “Just another @radhikaofficial fan account”.
Radhika has taken all this trending and trolling as a compliment. “I was very happy. I think it is a great compliment because it is such a great platform. Who would not like to be a part of the projects from Netflix,” she told PTI.
