In an interview, Radhika Apte said that a Tamil actor tickled her feet when she met him for the first time and she immediately slapped him. If we look in Tamil, Radhika Apte acted in Kabali (Rajinikanth), All in All Azhagu Raja (Karthi), Dhoni (Prakash Raj) and Vetri Selvan (Ajmal).
So among these four film, one of the leads or supporting actors should have tickled her feet. This allegation of Radhika Apte has shocked the entire Tamil film industry because many Bollywood actors praised the discipline and professionalism of South cinema but the actress has given a hint that Tamil cinema also has sexist culprits.
Radhika Apte had also exposed Telugu is a male-dominated industry.
