Radhika said that many of Yuvaraj’s predictions had turned true for her – right from her father’s death to her life and career. While discussing the historical movie, she was transferred Rs 15 lakh, the actress said. There was no agreement on the movie nor any transfer of cash, according to her. 

“When I asked him who the producer was, he said his brother-in-law was producing the movie. And so, I didn’t bother with the agreement. This isn’t the first time. I have worked on many films based on trust and without the agreement".
