Controversies about Radhika Apte
She was in news for many days when she made a statement about Telugu Film Industry. Radhika stated that how the Telugu industry was still patriarchal and male chauvinist, and that she wishes to discontinue working there.
She also brought forward the bad situation of other actresses from the Telugu Film Industry. Recently in an interview with Zoom TV Digital, she firmly said that gender pay disparity in Bollywood. Radhika said,
“I feel a male actor gets more money than he probably does deserve. The thing is that when character actors, male and female, when none of them are going to fetch more or less money at the box-office, you expect equal amount of work from them, equal amount of time from them and they are equally talented, even when you see that a woman is getting less money than a man. So the box-office logic works but one cannot deny the fact that disparity exists”.
