Do people expect me to wear a sari on a beach: Radhika Apte on being trolled for photo in bikini


Actor Radhika Apte has hit out at her critics, who recently trolled her for posting a photo from a Goa beach in bikini. The Padman actor was also criticised for allegedly holding a alcoholic drink and dating a ‘foreigner’ friend.

Radhika told DNA that she wasn’t even aware of being trolled until somebody informed her about the criticism on social media. She said, “I didn’t even know I was being trolled till someone told me. It’s ridiculous! Do people expect me to wear a sari on a beach?”

Radhika said that she did not know her trolls ‘so I don’t deal with them.’

Radhika’s photo posted earlier this month had evoked overwhelming reactions from her fans on Instagram with many of them expressing their displeasure on the actor dating a ‘foreigner.’ While there were others who objected to her outfit, there were some who did not like her holding a glass of what appears to be an alcoholic beverage, which according to them was not Indian culture.

Radhika is known for her acting prowess and playing meaty roles in her relatively short career as an actor. She has also acted in multiple languages including Hindi, Marathi, Bengali and Tamil.
