Radhika Apte is an actress full of surprises when it comes to her talent. The actress recently shared a throwback classical dance video of her doing Kathak.

The actress, who was recently seen in OK Computer, shared the video on social media and got everyone super nostalgic, wherein she is seen practising her Kathak dancing skills. She wrote, "@apnabhidu 🥰🥰🥰 thank you for sending this to me!!! This memory had left my little brain! You brought it back to life! ❤️ #nostalgia #kathak #besttimes #memories #lovefordance❤"

It was Jackie Shroff who helped Radhika Apte retrieve this archived video. The actress, as can be seen in the video, is a trained Kathak dancer. Radhika`s Andhadhun co-star Ayushmann Khurrana dropped a "Beautiful" comment on her post.

Meanwhile, Radhika Apte recently opened up about her most intense roles and dealing with their ``emotional hangover``.

"Growing up, I went to a Marathi medium school and my only exposure to cinema and theatre was local. I wasn`t aware of Hollywood at the time. One movie that deeply moved me was being played at the National Film Archives of India (NFAI) and called "One Flew Over The Cuckoo`s Nest" and another was the French movie "The Piano Teacher". I distinctly remember being so disturbed by the former. It was unlike any movie that I had seen -- especially the guy-loves-girl-and-wins-girl plots. This is the point at which I felt I wanted to do content that made people `feel` intensely," Apte said.

Talking about her most intense roles and the "emotional hangover" of such roles, Apte said: "I look at these roles as gifts. They are outlets for me to grieve or feel things that one sometimes doesn`t have the time or space for. Don`t we over-occupy ourselves on purpose -- because it`s too scary to deal with complexities? Sure, there is always the possibility of getting carried away or overindulging in a role. But, I have made sure that I stay centered and I have learned to draw work boundaries, to take rejection and to understand how much to get involved. I have managed to master these things in my professional life, in the hope that one can do it in one`s personal life as well."
