Radhika Apte shares her stance on plastic surgery.
Radhika Apte stated that plastic surgery has become a big thing in showbiz. The actress was recently seen in Mrs Undercover.
Actress Radhika Apte has come a long way with rich content-driven films and projects to her credit. While promoting her next film Mrs Undercover, she also spoke at length about actress going for surgeries, to enhance their looks. In an interview with Pooja Talwar, Radhika opined that how the newer generation all look alike on the pretext of plastic surgery. She shared that today plastic surgery has become a big thing.
“Everybody is doing it, to each of its own really. Everybody looks the same literally. They look like AI, like massive lips and cheekbones, whatever I don’t know… They look the same, which is strange. But, our filters, on Instagram and everything, are the same as well. They make people look quite AI. I don’t know, what is AI, I keep saying AI but what I mean is like certain sharp features and like a bit of plastic, I don’t know…,” she stated.
The actress admitted that she has become comfortable with her own skin. “I say that because I want to be happy and any kind of insecurity, whether it’s your career insecurity or how you look, the more you indulge in it, it only aggravates. It’s a myth that okay I will succeed and it will go away. Once you jump in it, it’s just a downward thing. which is why I am trying to keep myself away from it and safe from it,” she added.
Earlier too, in an interview with Film Companion, Radhika opened up on receiving derogatory remarks about her appearance and physical features during her initial years in the film industry. The Andhadhun actress shared that she had been body shamed and told to get a nose job and a boob as well.
“I lost a film because I was overweight by three or four kilos. Of course, when you’re new, they say, ‘Why don’t you get a better nose; why don’t you get bigger breasts?’ That was in the beginning. In the middle, some people would comment on your body as if they had the right to do so. Now we can talk about it very openly in the last few years because of awareness,” she said.
Meanwhile, Radhika’s Mrs Undercover, which has been helmed by Anushree Mehta also stars Sumeet Vyas and Rajesh Sharma in pivotal roles. The film was released on April 14. Radhika was last seen in the Netflix movie Monica, O My Darling with Rajkummar Rao and Huma Qureshi.
