In an interview, Radhika Apte said that her role in Parched came at a time when she “needed” it. She said that when you’re in Bollywood you’re constantly told what to do with your body and she always maintained that she would never do anything to her body or face.

She also said that she was trolled badly and couldn’t step out of her house. “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,” said the actress.

She added that the controversial photographs were bare-skinned selfies, and anyone with a sane eye would have guessed it wasn’t her. She said, “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’.”
Earlier, in a ‘We The Women’ event, the actress said that she was offered sex-comedies after she did Badlapur. “Because I stripped and I had done a short film, Ahalya, they said, ‘You are constantly playing the role of a seductress.’ I said, ‘Can you tell me where?’ They said, ‘Ahalya and Badlapur.’ I have been rejecting so much work. I don’t know if it is good for me or not,” asserted Radhika Apte.
