Talking about her transition, Radhika had told Humans of Bombay, “I got more TV offers, but I told myself, ‘You’re only 19, if you choose comfort, you’ll get stuck.’ So, I quit TV to do films. I began auditioning, but I faced rejections. I was told I needed to have a particular shape & size, & that I needed surgery. But mujhe toh main bahut sahi lagti hun. Who are these people to tell me I’m not pretty? But for the next 1.5 years I didn’t get work. It's easy to doubt yourself at such a time, but I knew the journey is more important than the destination. So, I made an effort to enjoy my auditions! Soon, I signed my first film as other projects followed.”
