Talking about her upcoming projects, Radhika said, “I am doing Padman. I am shooting for Bazaar with Saif Ali Khan. I am doing Shoot The Piano Player, it’s just a working title, and Bombairiya.”

Padman is said to be a biopic on Arunachalam Muruganantham, and will chronicle his journey of finding a way to make cheap, affordable sanitary napkins for women in his village. The film will hit the screens on January 26, 2018. Earlier, there were reports that Padman will clash with 2.0, but Akshay rubbished the rumours saying he won’t clash with his own film.
