In a recent interview Radhika Apte who will next be seen in Mrs Undercover spoke about her character Durga, a housewife and an undercover spy. The actress said that she loved the character the moment she read the script.

"I think the premise of the film was really exciting for me. We live in a country where there is a lot of patriarchy and so many women slog days and nights to keep their families happy, and yet go unnoticed so I think it did resonate with me and what I like about Durga is her innocence, her naivety, her clumsiness and even her journey of discovering herself. I think that was really good," Apte said.

"I mean it's high time that we have equality, the world is changing and now everyone is fighting for equal rights, equal pay, equal job opportunities and equal recognition. Film industry is just a reflection of what is going around in society and the world is changing very slowly and yet some parts of the world aren't and I think that's just why we are getting some better parts," she added.

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.
