On Tuesday evening, when a reporter at a press conference in Mumbai asked Radhika Apte a provocative question about the leaked nude scenes in her last release Parched, the actress shut down him down in the most epic way possible, without losing her calm.
Recently, the leaked intimate scene between Adil Hussain and Radhika from Parched went viral online. However, the makers said the film is much more than the scenes.
Radhika has never shied away from speaking her mind. Rather than keeping quiet about the controversy, she stressed in all her interviews how the film was much more than that one ‘sex’ leaked scene.
At the launch event for a luxury watch brand on Tuesday, a reporter asked her if “creating such controversies and doing bold scenes was necessary to become successful.” In a convoluted way, he was suggesting that Apte herself leaked the clips.
“Sorry, your question is very ridiculous. Controversies are made by the people like you. You saw the clip, you shared with other people, so you made the controversy,” she said at a l.
“I am an artist… if I am required to do a certain job then I will do it. If you get out of your cocoon and look at world cinema and what people are doing abroad and that too successfully, then you would have not probably asked this question,” added Radhika.
“I am not ashamed of anything. People who are embarrassed about their own body are curious about others’ bodies. So if you want to see a naked body tomorrow, see yourself in the mirror rather than my clip. Then only we can talk about this,” she added.
