Radhika Apte nude video scandal: Shweta Prasad and other celebrities support actress
Radhika Apta is an actress who has been surfacing for her bold choices of characters in the Hindi films till a leaked video of hers, showing frontal nudity gave her instant stardom. It was quite refreshing to see the actor laughing the whole matter off, while other actors and directors came out in her support. The latest to join the list was Shweta Prasad, who herself, not quite some time back, was engaged in a sex scandal.

Talking about the Radhika Apte incident, Prasad said she herself was assisting in the short film from which the video was leaked and to take it out of context for titillation was shameful.

Much to the chagrin of the director, the video was leaked in WhatsApp this April and has been circulated ever since. Talking about the whole incident, as was reported by, he said, ''There is a short film of 20 minutes that I had been commissioned to direct (there are 6 other directors from different parts of the world who have also directed different films that will eventually form a part of one big film that is yet to be released). This film was with subtitles and meant for release only in the international market.'' Talking about the film, he further said that the video involved small partial nudity and that the actress was brave enough to do it.

Nude photos of the actress was also making the rounds of the social media. While Apte laughed off the video, for the photos she tweeted, ''If you're going to get someone to pass off as naked me, she needs to a lot more like me."

Not much is known about the actress by her Bollywood fans, but in the film making industry, she is popular for her choices. Daughter of a neurosurgeon and associated with the Pune theatre group Aasakta, she has done films in Bengali, Marathi and Tamil. She was seen in Hunterr and Badlapur. Her upcoming film in Bollywood is Hindi biopic Manjhi: The Mountain Man.
