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.
Two scenes from the movie involving a naked Radhika Apte are going viral on the internet. The video has gone viral on WhatsApp since last night.
But, before the film could even go the censor board for certification, the scene featuring frontal nudity has been leaked online and gone viral.
This isn’t the first time that Radhika made headlines for leaked scenes or nude pictures. For a short film, meant to be released only in the international market, the leading lady went for full frontal nudity. She did it only because she was assured that it wouldn’t be released in India.
The scene is from Radhika’s next project titled Parched. It has Radhika and co-star Adil Hussain engaged in a love making scene. The film, produced by Ajay Devgn’s banner is already winning a lot of accolades at the recently concluded International Film Festival, Melbourne.
Radhika had previously been in a similar dilemma, when a nude scene of her from an Anurag Kashyap directed short film had leaked online.
Anurag Kashyap said that he had taken extreme care while filming the scene as it was sensitive. On-set and post-production, girls were handling the footage, which was always pixelated.
The film revolves around the life of three women from Gujarat who shun age-old traditions.
The leaked scene is very sensuous one between Radhika and Adil Hussain, and it is highly unlikely that a scene like that would ever be in an Indian film any time soon. Since Parched was made keeping in mind the international audience, a scene of this sort was not shocking.
Speaking about the leaked scenes, producer Aseem Bajaj as saying, “I don’t think the leak happened in India.The film has released in the US and France and its possible someone uploaded them from there. The scenes are not sensational or titillating in any way. But in our country while rape videos are available freely, sex is still considered taboo so we had planned to blur out the breasts. Radhika plays a woman who has been beaten up all her life and is yearning for a loving touch.”
Parched is about the story of four women in Gujarat, who talk about men, sex and life as they struggle with their individual demons.
However, this is the first instance when Radhika Apte’s nude scenes have been leaked online. Last year, a clip from Anurag Kashyap’s short film, which was based on the theme forbidden love, was leaked online.
