Radhika Apte is the most buzzworthy actress of the modern era, known for her beauty and boldness. She has played a wide variety of roles and has impressed everyone with her acting range. Radhika has also been at the forefront of the OTT revolution to the point that it became a meme. We have a lot of love for this indie darling and are excited by what she will do next.
The way Radhika Apte is owning up to her sexuality and embracing herself is truly incredible. She has taken on roles that have required her to be promiscuous on camera and committed to it fully due to the internet, and with the fear of Indian society's reaction to taboos, many actresses might get scared but not her. It has come with certain challenges as Radhika has to deal with many difficult situations. When a fake video of her getting nude on camera went viral, she had to deal with a lot of embarrassment.
As Radhika explains, I was trolled badly, and it did affect me. I couldn't step out of the house for four days, not because of what the media was saying but because my driver, watchman, and my stylist's driver recognised me from the images."
In many ways, Radhika Apte is fighting against regressive thoughts about the female body and sexuality. She is the wind of change and inspires other women to do the same, even taking things onto herself. It is truly courageous, and we have a deep respect for Radhika Apte.
Whenever a new idea or thought is introduced in society, it is always met with criticism and dismay. Her progressive ideologies have led to being a target of a smear campaign that constantly surfaces with #BoycottRadhikaApte.
Recently it started trending again because her old photos from the movie Parched went viral. The funny thing is that the same clip from the video leaked online and went viral with backlash. This showcases that you don't even have to do much for things to become controversial in today's climate. Social Media platforms have devolved into toxic posturing and mindless slander. Radhika Apte remains unfazed by it and continues to live her life carefreely.
Auditioning is a weird process through which actors are chosen to play a part. It is like meeting a stranger and then going from 0-100 on an emotional scale having to impress someone. When asked about the weirdest auditions to Radhika, her reply shocked everyone. When she auditioned for the Dev D movie, she was asked to do phone sex as the audition tape. This is somehow the weirdest and sketchiest thing we've ever heard. It has certainly made us curious as to where all these tapes are lying.
While Radhika Apte doesn't particularly see things as failure or success, it is just a matter of perception over something. If she had to choose, it would be her first stint in Mumbai. Yes, that's right, when Radhika Apte first started her journey, she ended up in Mumbai and quickly gave up in a few months.
Apte says her experience was not positive, or maybe she wasn't prepared emotionally for it. Whatever the case, she decided to come back to Pune and then overnight went to London for further studies. She then once again came back to Mumbai and had a much more positive experience.
One of the most incredible aspects of Radhika Apte is her transformative quality. She can essentially be the most glamorous woman on the cover of a magazine, looking fab. Then you will see her as a villager in Manjhi-The Mountain Man, looking completely believable in that world. This is one of the reasons why in our eyes, Radhika Apte is the most versatile and will have a diverse career. Bollywood needs to give her more mainstream roles.
Radhika Apte is a revolutionary actress that represents not only a new wave of acting but also thinking. She is pushing the boundaries of Indian cinema of content and how sexuality is portrayed. Apte is not interested in the medium or the size of the projects. She is glamorous but doesn't let it become a boundary for her, and her focus is always on playing the best part.
