Radhika Apte is on a roll. She is everywhere. First Padman, then Lust Stories, now Sacred Games and very soon in Ghoul, this young actress seems to be toast of Netflix these days.
We had hardly stopped talking about Apte’s role in Lust Stories when Sacred Game got released on Netflix. She is seen playing a no-nonsense RAW officer in the series, breaking several stereotypes about the role of women in security forces and intelligence.
The talks about Sacred Games and Apte’s role has not died yet when Netflix India released Ghoul trailer, again starring Apte. The one-minute long video, also starring Manav Kaul in the lead, is intriguing and horrifying to a spine-chilling level.

Based on Arabic folklore, Ghoul is set at a covert detention center at which military officials question and often torture suspected terrorists. In the trailer, we see Apte as an interrogator Nida, who turns against her father and exposes him as an anti-government activist.
Well, it is safe to say that Netflix is having a moment in India. However, the netizens stand divided over the presence of Apte once again in a yet another exciting series. As soon as Ghoul trailer came out, Twitteratti started arguing if it is too much of Apte or not. Here are some reactions:

Lust stories, Sacred Games & now Ghoul. Radhika Apte is now officially the first actor anywhere in the world to become a Netflix Original.

Unpopular opinion: Radhika Apte playing Radhika Apte in every role is getting a bit tiresome. #SacredGames
