After garnering much acclaim for herself from acting in various capacities, Indie actor Radhika Apte has donned the director’s chair for her upcoming film Sleepwalkers.
Apte has also finished shooting for the film, reported Mumbai Mirror.
Sleepwalkers features Gulshan Devaiah and Shahana Goswami in the lead. It is a 30-minute film on climate change and the relationship human beings bear with nature per se. It is produced by Honey Trehan and Abhishek Chaubey’s MacGuffin Pictures and Lalit Prem Sharma of Colosceum.
Trehan lauded Apte’s unique storytelling style to Mirror. He said, “As a content producer, it was a great subject for us to take forward. Radhika has proven her talent time and again and we are extremely excited to support the uniqueness she has, as a storyteller.”
In a woke society, we bear the responsibility to talk about issues that are troubling all of us at large. Sleepwalkers questions the society as it is,” he further added.
Udta Punjab fame director Abhishek Chaubey also complimented the actor for her “deeply felt and stirring debut.”
“While we pay lip service to climate change, we seldom accept our own culpability in it. Lalit, Honey and I are extremely proud to be a part of this film by Radhika and quite eager to see the audience experience Sleepwalkers and the other films in our anthology Lost and Found soon”, he added.
The release date of the film or the details about the anthology are not known yet.
