Known for her thought-provoking, strong roles, Radhika Apte has a knack to pick up interesting projects. The actress who is currently busy promoting her upcoming film Padman with Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor will soon be seen sharing screen space with Dev Patel.
Dev, who rose to instant fame with his debut film Slumdog Millionaire, became a household name in the west after his brilliant performance in last year's Lion. The actor was even nominated for an Oscar because of his performance in the film.

And now the actor is all set to star with Apte in an upcoming film. "Yes, I'm doing a film with Dev which I will announce soon," she told Mumbai Mirror, without revealing details about the film.
A report in Deccan Chronicle states that the film is still in its nascent stage and is going to be an Indie project.
Apte will also be seen in Baazaar this year, which also features Saif Ali Khan, Chitrangada Singh and debutant Rohan Mehra. She has just completed shooting for Anurag Kashyap's short film for the Love and Lust. Radhika Apte will also co-star with Ayushmann Khurrana in Sriram Raghavan's next film.
