Radhika Apte was the recent guest of Neha Dhupia’s chat show BFFs with Vogue. The actress was asked if there has been any instance when a colleague misbehaved with her and how did she handle the situation. The Padman actress, who is known to say things the way they ought to be said, revealed that a south superstar once started getting too comfortable with her on the first day of shoot and she gave him a tight slap.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Radhika revealed, “It was my first day on the set and a famous South actor started to tickle my feet. I was stunned as we’d never met before and I instinctively slapped him.”
Ever since her shocking revelation, there have been speculations about who this superstar she is talking about can be. The actress has done just a handful of south films and has been paired up with actors like Rajinikanth, Balayya, Fahad Fassil and Karthi. Is it one of these actors that Radhika is talking about?
While there are fans who are applauding the Phobia actress, there are some who are of the opinion that just talking about the incident that happened back in the day would not help any cause and if she is a real brave-heart, she should name and shame the actor.
There are also ardent fans of the south film industry who have taken an offense to Radhika’s statements citing that now that she has done a film with Akshay Kumar (Padman) and has another lined up with Saif Ali Khan (Baazaar) and is now keen on doing more Hindi films, she is defaming the South industry and the actors to be in headlines.
