Actor Radhika Apte earned plenty of plaudits for her role in the recently released Padman. She was recently holidaying in Goa, from where she posted a photo with her ‘friend’ Marc Richardson.
In the photo, posted by Radhika on Instagram, she is seen sporting a bikini and sitting on the beach with her friend. She is also seen with a drink in her hand. While posting the photo, Apte wrote, “#holiDay #timeoff #goa #sea #sunset #friends.”
Her photo 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 what appears to be an alcoholic beverage, which according to them was not Indian culture.
User PSB World wrote, “Let India remain India. Don’t make this a country of flashing your naked body. Whatever you are, be that. There’s no need to show to or teach the rest of the world.” Another user Keep Smiling wrote that only a ‘shameless will praise another shameless.’ User Amit Ahir asked why she was unable to find an Indian boyfriend. “Didn’t you find an Indian?” User Shubhzz Official advised Radhika to protect her sanskaar (upbringing).
Radhika is known for her acting prowess and playing meaty roles in her relatively short career as an actor.
