Mumbai: ‘Hunterrr’ actress Radhika Apte has once again found herself in the midst of controversy. A video featuring the actress in the nude has been doing the rounds on the instant messaging app WhatsApp. The clip is reportedly a scene from a 20-min short film directed by Anurag Kashyap.
Clearing the air about the controversy surrounding the video, Anurag Kashyap told Bombay Times, that the video is a part of his film, which is inspired by a true story. He was quoted saying, “There is a short film of 20 minutes that I had been commissioned to direct (there are 6 other directors from different parts of the world who have also directed different films that will eventually form a part of one big film that is yet to be released). This film was with subtitles and meant for release only in the international market.”
Talking about the leak he was quoted saying, “It has to be some Indian guy there, otherwise other material from other sources that is much more sexual is available to the West and something like this does not get them excited. I had shown the film before sending it to many of my friends including Vikramaditya Motwane’s mother and she cried as she felt it was so powerful and we needed to put out something like this.”
“Radhika Apte herself was so proud of it. But when you put out a video like this without context, people start making jokes on it.”
A couple of months ago, just before the release of her film ‘Badlapur’ nude images of the actress’ look-alike had gone viral. However the actress took to Twitter to slam reports.
