Radhika Apte is one person whom Yami Gautam should be thanking every day of her life. The reason behind the same is that it is because of Radhika that Yami got her debut film, and went on to become such a hugely popular star in Bollywood.

The story goes like, Radhika Apte was almost finalised for the lead role opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in ‘vicky donor‘ . However, she was rejected on grounds of being overweight. The pretty lady revealed the truth during a chat show. As reported by Pinkvilla, she said, “I had gone on a Holiday for a month, drank a lot of beer, ate loads of food. I told them that I’ll come back and lose it. But they did not want to take a chance.

Radhika opened up about rejection also in the show. After being thrown out of ‘Vicky Donor’, she started getting more conscious about her fitness. “I don’t get affected by rejection at work, but the weight thing really messed with my head,” said Radhika on the show.

Radhika Apte has since then given us some of the most stellar performances. Last year, her ‘Andhadhun’ became not only super popular in India, but also amassed immense fan following in China, where the movie turned out to be a huge money grosser. So if she couldn’t work with Ayushmann in ‘Vicky Donor’, finally she got to work with him in ‘Andhadhun’. Even her film, ‘Padman’ became one of the best films of last year.
