Controversies are made by people like you: Radhika Apte to reporter
Actress Radhika Apte on Tuesday lost her cool 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 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 an earlier interview, the actress had also said there was nothing ‘leaked’ about the scene. The scene was in the film and it has released in the US.
In Tuesday’s 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.”
While ‘Parched’ has received critical acclaim at many International Film Festivals, back home the main talking point of the film has been its nudity.
