Actress Radhika Apte on Tuesday got angry with a media reporter for asking about the leaked nude scenes in her last release Parched. “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 the launch of Swatch watches on Tuesday. Recently, the leaked intimate scene between Adil Hussain and Radhika from “Parched” created a big controversy. However, the makers said the film is much more than the scenes.
Radhika has not been shy 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. In the event, she said: “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 the world cinema and what people are doing abroad and that is too successfully then you would have not probably asked this question. I am not ashamed of anything. People who are embarrassed about their own body are curious about other’s body. 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.”
Regarding the leaked scene from Parched, Radhika earlier said that she wasn’t disheartened when the leaked nude scenes from the film went viral. “It is not disheartening. I am not bogged down about it (nude scenes) coming out. I am not bothered about all these things,” Radhika said.
The clips were seen as a marketing gimmick and created a controversy but irrespective of all, the film couldn’t do well at the box-office. Parched also starred Tannishtha Chatterjee and Surveen Chawla in the lead role.
