Radhika Apte Sizzles In Her Bold Photoshoot

Radhika Apte is extremely busy these days. With with back-to-back releases, such as Kabali, Phobia, Parched, Badlapur and Manjhi: The Mountain Man, and several other notable performances in shorts she seems to be on a roll.

She is in the news these days after a photographer shared a semi nude picture of her latest photo shoot on his Instagram handle. No wonder the picture immediately went viral. Reports said the pictures are from Radhika’s latest photo shoot for a clothing brand. The actor has not commented or shared a picture from the shoot yet.

Known for candid conversations Radhika has never been afraid to speak her mind. She recently told a national daily, “This is literally the beginning. I am still fumbling and looking at things, not knowing what to do… I feel that it’s just the beginning. When I am 70 years old, I can talk about my journey… I have taken a pause. I’m choosing my work carefully. I am looking at particular projects which are inspiring me or making me excited”.
When asked about her onscreen boldness, the actress had said earlier, “I am an artiste… if I am required to do a certain job then I will do it. If you get out of your cocoon and look at the world cinema and what people are doing abroad and that is too successfully then you would have not probably asked this question. 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. Then only we can talk about this.”
