Radhika Apte has been making comments about how she got sexual harassed or faced some vulgar comments from Southern Filmmakers. She acted in three Telugu Films and few Tamil movies.
She earlier said a hero misbehaved with her and she did not like it one bit. Now, she shaded another spine chilling experience.
She appeared at Neha Dhupia talk show and talked about the harassment in the name of Auditions. She said, " A South director asked me to appear for a quick audition at Mumbai when I just returned from London after shooting.
He came with 12 people along with a tailor. The hotel was murky and dirty. He gave me a short coat and asked me to wear it.
Then people started clicking photos asking me to give some weird poses and he said that he will take my audition in different styles and poses with a smirk that gave bad feelings.
Still I continued with the charade hoping for it to end soon. He asked to dance in some steps that are more sexual. I couldn't understand what is the significance of all this for a movie that is said to be a folklore.
It had Vikram as hero but it never went on to sets. I said to the director that I can't stay any longer in the hotel and has a shooting early in the morning and escaped from there. Thankfully, the movie never went onto sets," concluded the actress.
She did not name the director and just said that a popular director from South. Did not even mention if it was a Telugu or Tamil movie. Well, we don't who did it and it gets tough to take this story seriously in such situation. But if it is really the case, we need to condemn it.
