Two lovemaking scenes from the film Parched, produced by Ajay Devgn, have reportedly shown up online. One features Ms Apte and actor Adil Hussain, the other features her and co-star Tannishtha Chatterjee. The makers of the film have reportedly complained to the cyber cell.
Adil Hussain is upset to see his love-making scene with actress Radhika Apte from his international film, Parched, doing the rounds of internet. The said scene, which shows Adil and Radhika both topless making love, was leaked a couple of days back by culprits who are yet to be identified.
“I learnt about it yesterday from Google alert and it felt bizarre in the beginning. In fact, it felt very weird. It shows how sexually obsessed a lot of people in our society are. You leak only the sex scene and no other beautiful scenes from the film.
It only shows that we are extremely obsessed about sex and yet we don’t want to talk about it. We shun it, shove it under the carpet and don’t want to show it to people.” Said Adil in an interview with the Indian Express.
The movie is about three women in a remote Gujarat village who break free of century-old traditions of servitude and patriarchy.
“She feels victimised and I feel responsible,” said Mr Kashyap for Radhika Apte, who he described as ‘forward thinking’ and ‘one of the bravest actresses we have.’
Ms Apte has starred in a series of films in the past year, from the viral short Ahalya and biopic Manjhi: The Mountain Man to the acclaimed horror film Phobia and Rajinikanth’s latest blockbuster Kabali.
