Reacting on the big news, Radhika told Hindustan Times, “I found out about the nominations when Anurag told me in the evening. I obviously could not believe it and had to ask him five times like is this the Emmys?… So yes I wasn’t expecting this. It’s overwhelming. So many people messaged and called personally — family, friends and industry friends.”

The actress went on to share that even being nominated for such a prestigious award is a huge thing. And she is grateful that her efforts are being recognised and appreciated.
