Radhika Apte on Bollywood
Bollywood actress Radhika Apte is known for her powerful performances and outstanding work. Be it an OTT platform or movies, Radhika has proved her acting skills everywhere and gotten rave reviews too.
Speaking about the dark side of Bollywood, she revealed that people suggested her to undergo plastic surgeries to look a certain way. “When I was new, I was told to do lots of jobs on my body and face. In the first meeting I had, I was told to change my nose. In the second meeting I had, I was told to get a boob job. Then that continued, then I was told to do something to my legs, then something to my jaw, and something to refill somewhere here (points to her cheeks) then botox. Like, it took me 30 years to color my hair.”
“I’m not going to get even an injection. It just put me off. I never felt pressurised by it. In fact, I felt angrier and in fact, all of that helped me actually love my body even more because I was like ‘I love my body.”
“I’m just a bit sick and tired of people always doing that and which is why it doesn’t affect me. I mean it affects me, but it doesn’t affect me in the way that I would like to do it ever,” she added.
Getting rejected for body shape
The actress has been in controversy due to her multiple movies in the past. But nothing has ever stopped her from giving her best for whichever role she is given. After a 17-year-long career, the actress has now disclosed how she was recently rejected because the other actress had bigger breasts and bigger lips.
Radhika Apte said, “I recently got rejected because the other actor had bigger lips and bigger breasts. I was told, “She looks sexier and sells more.” It was a good film being made by people whom I respect. You look up to certain people, and think, They won’t be into this. But they also have such a mindset. Hopefully, the more women we have in positions of power, the more things will change.”
