While working on the film” The Waiting City,” the movie inspired not only on the spiritual part but also allowed the actress to explore the issues and have her family of own seriously. On an interview with the timesofindia.indiatimes.com, she said:
“Not to the extent that I can explain you. However, The Waiting City has inspired me to an extent that I'd in future like to adopt a child and start my own family. I'm glad through this movie, we have been able to explore the serious issue of adoption of kids. We have created a dialogue and made people think about it, which are very important.”
Her love did not only end with the movie but further extended as she thought the country to be her real home rather than Australia. She said:
“In a way, yes. There is something all embracing about India. Everybody can find a place there. There is room for everybody. I feel a sense of home in India. I'm aware of the impact of the works of Satyajit Ray, and my next project will also have an Indian connect. Based on the book Holy Cow, it will explore different aspects of Indian spirituality.”
The Indian culture has set an impression on the mind of the actress. The food, warm, welcoming nature of the citizens, colorful Indian attire has laid a solid in the heart of Radha. When sharing her experience about the country she said:
I was about six when I visited old Delhi to meet family friends. I remember the monkeys, elephants, sarees, silk and the smell of spices. And also that my mother had diarrhoea. There is something special about the saree. It was special to wear it at the end of the film The Waiting City. You feel like a goddess when you drape it; won't make much sense to those who haven't worn it ever. during my recent visit to India, i attended the Kumbh Mela and got to stay in Delhi too. The capital is a great city. I adore it for its history, public transport and I am in awe of the Red Fort.
She further added,
I was 19 when I went on a road trip (from Kolkata to Goa) with my friends that too when we had no contacts in the country. We commuted by buses and bikes. But we knew what we were doing. That trip made me think how intoxicating and inspiring Indians can be. At that time, I imagined I too would become an actor someday in my life and thought how magical it would be to make films in India. So when The Waiting City happened, I was excited to be the part of the project.
