Radhika Apte: I don’t see why I should be ashamed of my body
Actress Radhika Apte, who has impressed us with every character that she has played in her movies, has done extremely bold scenes in her new film ‘Parched’. But, the actress is very much comfortable with her body and has no apprehensions about doing bold scenes. She revealed to a popular web portal, “I had no apprehensions about going bold. I have been brought up watching world cinema and I have travelled a lot so I am very comfortable with my body. I have seen people performing nude on stage in India and abroad. I don’t see why I should be ashamed of my body. That’s the one tool I use as a performer. I had no apprehensions doing bold scenes. I was also sure that I was really in good hands.”
Her bold scene with Adil Hussain in the movie had taken the internet by storm, but that doesn’t affect the actress as she says, “I don’t look at it and I don’t care. I do my work and I wait for the film to release. These things don’t bother me at all. It is not disheartening. I am not bogged down about it (nude scenes) coming out. The film is much more than this scene. It’s not a leaked scene, the film is (released) abroad in many countries and it is available on Netflix.” Kudos to the actress for being so vocal and strong in her opinions.
As for the movie ‘Parched’, it also features Surveen Chawla and Tannishtha Chatterjee. The movie is directed by Leena Yadav and produced by Ajay Devgn. ‘Parched’ will be releasing in India on September 23
