The 2014 Marathi thriller Lai Bhaari and the 2016 Tamil drama Kabali are her biggest commercial successes.
While other actresses are just limited to exposing, Radhika never shies and hesitates to bare all for a camera, only if she is convinced that script demands it. Two videos from Radhika Apte’s new Hindi film ‘Parched’ are currently going viral on social media. While in one scene, she was seen removing her top to bare for the camera, in another video she was scene in a sensual love making a scene with co-star and she was of course topless. The leaked videos are going viral especially on WhatsApp.
While Radhika Apte‘s Parched directed by Leena Yadav has been winning hearts at the screening of film festivals, the recent controversy of her has shocked everyone. In the video, the actress is seen fully bare as she lip locks with co-star Adil Hussain in the video. When Mumbai Mirror contacted the producer Aseem Bajaj about the video been leaked, he replied saying that he is not aware of the incident. He also added that he may approach cyber cell of the Mumbai police to take off the video. As the film has released in the US and France, the producer thinks that someone from there might have uploaded the video.

“I don’t think the leak happened in India.The film has released in the US and France and its possible someone uploaded them from there. The scenes are not sensational or titillating in any way. But in our country, while rape videos are available freely, sex is still considered taboo so we had planned to blur out the breasts. Radhika plays a woman who has been beaten up all her life and is yearning for a loving touch,” says Bajaj.
He further stated, “She’s like my sister, we did not set out to exploit her in any way. This kind of attitude stems from the way people view such scenes. I didn’t see men in the US and France ‘getting excited’. We haven’t sent the film to the Indian censors yet but I am confident the CBFC will understand the thought behind them and agree that they are integral to the narrative. We are not ashamed of these scenes.”
