1) The Nude Selfies
Earlier last year, Radhika’s ‘shower selfies’ got leaked into the online forums and were widely circulated on Whatsapp. Sources say that these were intended for her husband Benedict Taylor who is an acclaimed musician.
2) Were the selfies ‘planned’?
There are minds who think that the leak was a planned stunt since she had tweeted: “You guys! If you’re going to get someone to pass off as naked me, she needs to look a lot more like me.” Three whole days before the pictures went viral!
3) The ‘Striptease’ leak
Nudity and controversies continued to dog Radhika after a scene from Anurag Kashyap’s short film was leaked. The clip, which went insanely viral on Whatsapp, featured Radhika lifting her skirt to reveal her nethers.
4) Bold comments
She was recently in the news for a very bold statement which she made against the Telugu film industry. She revealed how the Telugu industry was still patriarchal and male chauvinist, and that she wishes to discontinue working there. She also brought to light the plight of many actresses of the aforementioned industry. Now that’s gutsy, girl!
5) The ‘piggybacking’ allegations
Many from the industry alleged that Radhika was simply piggybacking on the media coverage that she was receiving because of her leaks. They even attribute her success and bagging a film with Rajnikanth to the leaks. All we can say is that maybe the grapes are sour indeed!
She continues to entertain us, and blow our minds with her exuberant performances in the likes of Badlapur, Shor In The City, Hunterrr and her latest short film ‘Ahalya.’ What do we love the most about her? “I don’t have time to react to such news”. You go girl!
