Radhika Apte, who is known for her works Raktha Charitha, Lion and Legend, made headlines sometime back for her sensational comments on Telugu film industry. She said that the industry is male dominant and has a male chauvinistic setup.
Though the comments drew a huge row, Radhika remained true to her statement. Apparently, here she is, back in news with her latest interview to a portal, where she spoke about the insecure south Indian heroes and the bad work she has done here.
Talking about her upcoming film Kabali and her co-star Superstar Rajinikanth, Radhika said that it is the first south Indian film, where she was treated as an equal. She opined that the actor has no insecurity.
"I tried to do a few films in the South for whatever reason, and then I decided I won't do them anymore. Then I got a Rajnikanth film. It's an experience of a lifetime. It's the first time I acted in a South Indian film where I was treated as an equal by an actor.", she further added.
Radhika apparently did a few films in south, since she has no option, but to start from the scratch. "I sometimes think that it would have made more sense not to do anything than to work in films that are not great. Because you learn to do bad work, you learn to do it easy.
In the few films I did, and I would be told 'Maa, sad feeling' and I would look sad. Then they would say 'Maa, shock.' And they would put the camera on your face only to capture your reactions.
There would be nothing happening in front of me. I began to realise that it was a piece of cake. They were calling me a one-take actress. It doesn't challenge you and you get bored. You learn the easy way out and get used to it.", said Radhika.
