Actress Radhika Apte, who is being trolled for frequently featuring in the Indian projects of Netflix, doesn’t think her association with the streaming platform has been long and that the three series getting released around the same time was just a coincidence.Radhika had three releases - Lust Stories, Sacred Games and Ghoul -- this year on Netflix.

Twitterati started targeting the Phobia actress when the trailer of Ghoul, Netflix India’s first horror mini-series, got unveiled in July. One user wrote, “Radhika Apte is to Netflix what Alia Bhatt is to Dharma.”

Asked about her long association with Netflix, Radhika told IANS, “It has not really been that long. Sacred Games was the only series that I knew was a Netflix original series. Lust Stories and Ghoul... when I shot them were not associated with Netflix. So this is just a great coincidence. Netflix India has also backed her by releasing a spoof video Omnipresent online, and captioned it. “Whatever the role, Radhika apt hai.”

In the video, she says, “Vik (Ghoul producer Vikramaditya Motwane) calls me one day and says that Radhika what if you play every character in this film. That got my attention. Because that is a challenge I cannot turn down.”
