  • Career

    The real break for Radhika came in 2010. Ram Gopal Varma had casted her opposite Vivek Oberoi in Rakta Charitra-1 and 2. The movie is based on a real story in Anantapuram, Andhra Pradesh. Radhika played the wife of a naxallite turned politician, Paritala Ravi who was later slain by his opponents. Both the versions were made in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi and got her good recognition.

Despite the film ending up as biggest hit in Balakrishna's career, it did not give the required push to Radhika's career in Telugu.
