From dark-comedy to crime-thriller, Bollywood actress Radhika Apte has never shied away from experimenting and trying different genres. During a conversation with Bollywood Hungama recently, the actress opened up about a specific genre, sex comedy. While speaking her mind on it, she also spoke about her take on the previous sex comedies in Bollywood.
EXCLUSIVE: Radhika Apte talks about sex comedies in Bollywood; says, “They can be very derogatory, objectify women”
It all started when we asked her, what makes her reject the “big ticket films”. In a quick response to the question, she recalled receiving a lot of sex comedies after the release of Badlapur. She asserted, “I have no problems with sex comedies like Hunterrr could be called a sex comedy as well.”
The Sacred Games actress further added, “I think a film doesn't have one single genre. But the kind of sex comedies we've had in the past are very derogatory and they objectify women, and I don't like the humour.”
Giving another reason for saying no to big-budget films, the Lust Stories actress took a subtle dig at late comers, and how the dates of shoots keep changing. Coming back to her first point, she added, “I don't mind a film where a chauvinist guy makes horrible jokes about women,” but there should be a story or built-up behind it. She concluded by saying, “as a film if you start celebrating those jokes then I'm not gonna be a part of it.”
Coming to her upcoming release, Monica, O My Darling also stars Huma Qureshi and Rajkummar Rao in the lead. The film is slated to release on November 11.
