Radhika Apte had an era of her own, juggling multiple projects, especially on OTT platforms. She debuted with the movie Vaah! Live Ho Toh Aisi! and starred in a string of hit movies over the past decade. A few years ago, the actor was candid about working in the South Indian film industry, highlighting an incident where a popular Telugu actor tickled her out of the blue.
For the inexperienced, Radhika was last seen in the sci-fi show OK Computer which started in the year 2021. She has a number of movies planned for 2022 including highly anticipated remakes like Vikram Vedha and Forensic. Fans are extremely excited to have her back on the big screen and OTT as it has been a while since her last performance.
According to The News Minute, in the year 2018, Radhika Apte had appeared on the chat show called BFFs and Vogue where she was candid about a range of topics, including her work in the Southern film industry. When asked about the lack of gender equality in the South Indian film industry, Radhika said that she didn’t want to generalize it, but that she has had such an experience. She also emphasized how powerful the men in the industry are.
Radhika Apte related a personal experience, saying: “My first day in Telugu film. There is a scene where I am (lying) lying down, because I am not feeling well. There are many people; everything is set. And the (male ) actor comes in – and we’re rehearsing – he comes in… I don’t even know him, and he starts tickling my feet!”
Elaborating on what happened, she said: “He was a great actor…I was told he is powerful. But [the person] who I am, I got up and snapped at him in front of everyone – the whole crew, the junior performers, everyone. And I looked at him and said, “Don’t ever do that to me, ever.” I was so angry, I told him “someday, ever!”. He was so shocked, because he hadn’t expected that. But he never touched me again.”
