Radhika Apte trolled for flashing nipples in bold photoshoot


Radhika Apte, known for her boldness, posted a semi-nude picture of hers from a photoshoot for a clothing brand, but was forced to take it off following fans’ reaction.

The picture has the sultry actress wearing a skimpy, see-through top that made her nipples clearly visible. Her face is only half visible in the blank-and-white filtered photo. The ‘Badlapur’ actress had captioned the picture, ‘Loving this new avatar of her’s’ with three heart emojis.

Radhika does look sizzling in the photo and it is undoubtedly one of the boldest photoshoots any Bollywood diva has done. However, it invited flak from some of her followers. While some found it “sexy” and “bold”, the others posted comments like ‘I would not like to see my Indian actress in this avatar’.

The actress removed the picture within a few minutes after posting it. Well, Radhika had never been shy of her body. She had earlier gone nude for movies and surprised her fans. She landed in a controversy when a video clip of her sex scenes from the movie ‘Parched’ leaked online.

Radhika has never had any inhibitions in shedding clothes before the camera. “I had no apprehensions about going bold. I have been brought up watching world cinema, and I have travelled a lot, so I am very comfortable with my body. I have seen people performing nude on stage in India and abroad. I don’t see why I should be ashamed of my body. That’s the one tool I use as a performer,” she said in an event when asked about her bold scenes.

She even lashed out when asked about the leaked sex scenes saying, “I am an artiste... if I am required to do a certain job then I will do it. I am not ashamed of anything. People who are embarrassed about their own body are curious about other's body. So if you want to see a naked body tomorrow, see yourself in the mirror rather than my clip.”

The picture was a part of designer Nimish Shah’s line. The designer also shared the same picture on his Instagram page. Photographer Ashish N Shah also shared it. 

Meanwhile, Radhika is currently in Maheshwar, Indore, MP, shooting for 'Padman' opposite Akshay Kumar.
