Where Bollywood actresses go through a declining phase after marriage or their career has to take a backseat (even for a while), the very sexy actress Radhika Apte’s (who was recently seen in HUNTERR and BADLAPUR) case is otherwise. Though she has been in the film industry for quite some time, it’s only after marriage Radhika came into limelight. 


When we brought the same to her notice, Radhika Said, “Well I don’t look at marriage the way you are talking about. It’s hard to generalize but there is a tendency that if you are married, then you assume that your next step is having babies and basically not work. I find it very regressive. I think its high time industry changes its perception and the society changes the way it looks at the marriage.  Actors are human beings, you get married or you have children or you do what you want to do, that has nothing to do with your work life. I also don’t believe in this whole marriage system, the society changing its outlook and all…”
Radhika, who has been married to popular British musician Benedict Taylor, further said, “Fortunately we both come from families who are very liberal and we don’t care. After marriage also nothing has changed for us.”

When asked Radhika how supportive Benedict has been towards her career decisions, she at once said, “My career is again my career. Whether he supports me or not it’s irrelevant thing. We are two free individuals. I find it very humiliating that a man should support a woman in her career. I think we live in equality. If a man doesn’t need support or permission, so woman also doesn’t need permission or support…”

Meanwhile, Radhika is in news for her leaked nude images that she shot for a short film directed by Anurag Kashyap, which has gone viral.
