Talking about her role in Parched, Radhika told Grazia magazine, “I really needed a role like this because when joining Bollywood I was constantly told what to do with your body and I always said that I would never do anything for my body or face. When a nude clip of mine leaked, while I was filming Clean Shaven, I was trolled badly, and it did affect me. I couldn’t step out of the house for four days, not because of what the media was saying but because my driver, watchman, and my stylist’s driver recognised me from the images.”

She added, “The controversial photographs were bare-skinned selfies, and anyone with a sane eye would have guessed it wasn’t me. I don’t think there is anything one can do, or one should do, but ignore it. Anything else is a waste of your time. So, when I stripped for Parched, I realised: ‘There’s nothing left for me to hide.”

Radhika was most recently seen in Disney+HotStar’s OK Computer that also featured Vijay Varma and Jackie Shroff.
