her way back home as she essays the role of Radha- a feisty, strong-willed
runaway who finds herself in the thick of a myriad of intricate schemes. Watch
Raat Akeli Hai, a gritty thriller that follows inspector Jatil (Nawazuddin
Siddiqui) as he probes into the mysterious death of a high profile politician.
Will he be able to solve this seemingly unsolvable crime? Or will his
painstaking efforts be thwarted by more powerful forces at play? Find out in
Raat Akeli Hai, streaming on 31st July, only on Netflix.”

The streaming service also took to Twitter and wrote, “Not
like we’re keeping count and not like we’ve waited 2 years to tweet this and
not like we’re crying but Radhika Apte returns to a Netflix original tomorrow!
Loudly crying faceLoudly crying faceLoudly crying face #RaatAkeliHai.”

The film marks the directorial debut of casting director Honey Trehan, who is famed for films like ‘Talvar’, ‘Delhi Belly’, and ‘Udta Punjab’.

Talking to news agency PTI in an interview, Radhika said, “I love thrillers. This film is a great whodunnit with amazing ensemble performances. Honey is a director to look out for.”

The actor said working with the first-time director was a “fulfilling” experience as Trehan is someone who taps talent very well.

“Honey and I have had a long relationship. I’ve auditioned for him many times. I’ve not been selected for many, many parts he auditioned me for because he needs to cast people who are absolutely perfect for the part. He always makes a choice which is perfect for the film.”

The tweet created a meme fest on the internet.
