Radhika Chaudhari is an Indian actress, who has worked in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu film industries, predominantly in the early 2000s. In 2010, she made a comeback as a film director in the USA, winning an award at the Las Vegas Film Festival.[1]

Career[edit]

Radhika attended the University of Pune, India where she did her Masters in Mass Communications. She featured in around 30 Indian films in multiple languages including in two high-profile films, Tere Naam and Khushi, winning critical acclaim for her various roles and songs.

In 2010, she made a comeback of sorts as a director based in Los Angeles, and won the Silver Ace Award for Best Short Film at the Las Vegas Film Festival, for her critically acclaimed short film Orange Blossom. The film was shot in Los Angeles in a span of four days and the 17-minute film told the story of a single mother going through the pangs of separation from her husband; while making the folly of passing on too much information about herself and her family to a few strangers. Usha Kokotay played the protagonist, while others in the cast included Jeff Doucette and John Paul Ouvrier.[2]
