Actors Radhika Apte and Vikrant Massey will soon be seen together in filmmaker Vishal Furia's Forensic, which is a remake of a Malayalam film of the same name.

The Quint spoke to Radhika and Vikrant, who are playing the leads, police officer Megha and forensic expert Johnny, in the film. The actors talk about the experience of working on a crime thriller, their behind-the-scenes experience, and more.

Radhika Apte revealed that she, and her contemporaries, did face certain problems when it came to the availability of roles.

"A lot of actresses now, in there 40s and 50s are coming back and doing such fantastic work and OTT has changed that a lot. Having said that, it doesn't entirely change that people want young actresses. That was quite shocking and difficult to deal with."

Talking about professionalism in the film industry, Radhika said, "Today things have changed, but in the beginning, oh my God! I cannot tell you how many of my last checks never came. Five years ago, I did a South Indian film and I shot for the whole thing, but they never paid me."

The ZEE5 film is a psychological thriller, which will stream on 24 June. The crime-thriller also stars Prachi Desai, Rohit Roy and Anant Mahadevan.
