During a recent media interaction Radhika Apte spoke about playing a housewife and undercover agent in the spy comedy Mrs Undercover.

The 37-year-old actress said, "For me, Mrs Undercover is special for many reasons. Not only is spy comedy an unexplored genre in India, but at the very first narration of this film I fell for my character. Durga is funny, kind, sincere, she is also clumsy and unsure of herself, and this film is her journey of discovering her own strength."

"Every household has a Durga, a woman who quietly goes about her work and doesn't get her due because she is considered 'just' a housewife," Radhika pointed out. "This film fights that mindset which prevails in our patriarchal society, and it's done beautifully in the guise of humour."

Directed and written by debutant director, Anushree Mehta, Mrs Undercover features Apte in the lead role. It also stars Sumeet Vyas, Rajesh Sharma and Saheb Chatterjee. Mrs Undercover will premiere on April 14 on ZEE5.
