Radhika Apte Confirms Female Driven WWII Spy Drama

#RadhikaApte set to play the role of “Noor Inayat Khan” in female-driven WW II spy drama based on the real-life spies in Winston Churchill’s  “Secret Army”.

“Castle” Famed Stana Katic, Sarah Megan Thomas (Equity), and Bollywood Actress Radhika Apte are set to star in an untitled female-driven WW II spy drama set to begin this spring.

Linus Roache and Rossif Sutherland also have been cast in the project, based on the real-life spies in Winston Churchill’s “secret army”, from Thomas and Lydia Dean Pilcher (Queen of Katwe).

Radhika Apte confirmed the news on her social media account. She shared an info-link of the film, with the caption, “Next project :)”

The untitled film centers on British intelligence officer Vera Atkins, played by Katic, and two of the women she sends to France as spies, Virginia Hall (Thomas) and Noor Inayat Khan (Apte). Atkins is a crafty recruiter with a secret of her own. Hall is a daring American with a wooden leg who was the first female field agent and ultimately the spy the Nazi’s dubbed “the most dangerous of all,” and Khan is a pacifist of Indian descent who was the first female wireless operator. These civilian women form a sisterhood while entangled in missions to turn the tide of the war.

Thomas wrote the screenplay and will produce with Lydia Dean Pilcher (Queen of Katwe) who is set to direct.
Apte recently starred in the hit film Padman and will star opposite Dev Patel in Michael Winterbottom’s upcoming feature The Wedding Guest.
