‘Parched’ Hits Theaters This Friday: Radhika Apte Talks About Why She Does “Bold” Scenes

Radhika Apte’s been in the news a lot lately. Mostly because her steamy sex scene with ‘Parched’ costar, Adil Hussain, got leaked and was being sold as porn in the alleys of Kolkata, and everywhere else.

 

Having already garnered some rather skewed publicity, ‘Parched’ is due to release this coming Friday. Apte has, predictably, been asked all manner of questions about her role and such like.

When asked about doing “bold” scenes, the actor, in a recent interview said,

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 nu*e on stage in India and abroad.

 

It takes courage to do nude scenes, especially in Indian movies, even if the script demands it. There is always the danger of an actress being typecast as the “wrong kind of woman”, and then there’s no saving her career. In a country like India, it takes almost as much courage to make a movie like ‘Parched’.

Radhika Apte had the courage to do both. Kudos!
