Radhika Apte, who rose to fame with several hit films like Andhadhun and Padman, opens up about a past incident to a portal recently. A nude clip, from a scene in her film Clean Shaven, had leaked online. After which Radhika said she couldn't manage to step out of her house because her driver too recognized her in that clip.
"I really needed a role like this because when you’re in Bollywood you’re constantly told what to do with your body and I always maintained that I would never do anything to my body or face. When a nude clip of mine leaked, while I was filming Clean Shaven, I was trolled badly, and it did affect me. I couldn’t step out of the house for four days, not because of what the media was saying but because my driver, watchman, and my stylist’s driver recognized me from the images," she told the portal.
Radhika, however, further added that the girl in those photos wasn't her. "The controversial photographs were bare-skinned selfies, and anyone with a sane eye would have guessed it wasn’t me. I don't think there is anything one can do, or one should do, but ignore it. Anything else is a waste of your time. So, when I stripped for Parched, I realized: ‘There’s nothing left for me to hide," she added. In Parched, Radhika Apte played the role of a sex worker. The 35-year old actress will soon be seen in Mrs. Undercover and The Wedding Guest.
