Radhika Apte On Nude Video Leak: The Parched actor opened up about the time a nude video clip of her surfaced online. Apte said that she was “trolled badly” which affected her a lot, but she became more body confident because of what she went through.
Actor Radhika Apte has been known for being outspoken. She started her career in acting with a small role in the film Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi in 2005 while she was still in college. Since then, Apte has acted in popular films like Dhoni (Telegu), Shor In The City, Pad Man, Parched and others.
The 35-year-old actor played the role of a sex worker in the film Parched which exposed her to a lot of criticism in 2016. While talking about her role in the film to Grazia Magazine, Apte said that she really needed a role that shook people because she had constantly been told what to do with her body in Bollywood. “I always maintained that and I would never do anything to my body or face” the actor added.
Addressing the nude clip that leaked while she was filming Clean Shaven, “I was badly trolled and it did affect me. I couldn’t step out of the house for four days” Apte said. Further, she mentioned that those leaked photos were bare-skinned selfies. “Anyone with sane eyes would have guessed it wasn’t me,” she said.
Apte mentioned that she had nothing left to hide when she stripped for Parched because of all the fake news that surrounded her. “I became more body confident,” she told Grazia Magazine. She revealed that she chose to stay during the peak of the controversy not because of what all the media were saying about her but because the driver, watchman, and her stylist’s driver recognised her from the pictures and videos. “I don’t think there is anything one can do or one should do, but ignore it,” the 35-year-old actor said.
Apte had also been part of the much-acclaimed film A Call to Spy. It had its world premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and went on to win awards at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and the Whistler Film Festival. Apte plays the role of Indian-origin British spy Noor Inayat Khan in it.
