Radhika Apte was in news somedays back after a clip went viral in which the actress is seen making a dare-to-bare act for a short film.
The leaked video clip was apparently a part of a short film directed by Anurag Kashyap for an international audience and the director expressed strong displeasure at the clip being leaked.
Now, Shweta Basu Prasad who sometimes back was also in news in regard to a sex scandal, has spoken up on Radhika Apte's leaked clip.
Shweta Basu stated that she was with Radhika Apte when the scene was being shot and asserted that the scene has nothing sexual and was shot with utmost cautiousness.
"I was there when it was shot. I assisted Anurag on this film and I am very proud of it. The nude shot was done so carefully. It was asexual, innocent and beautiful. It is completely stripped of a sexual content," said Shweta Basu Prasad.
Shweta also praised both the director and the actress for shooting the sequence. "Anurag made sure that there was no except two women, one of them being me, on the sets. Anurag has a daughter and he is deeply sensitive to issues regarding the violation of a woman's private space. I salute him for shooting the sequence so sensitively and I salute Radhika for doing what she did. It was shameful to tear it out of context and use it for titillation," added Shweta.
