Radhika Apte was present on a chat show where she spoke about how she was approached to play the female lead in Shoojit Sircar’s Vicky Donor. The movie was a superhit and has acquired a cult status as well. But the actress lost out to Yami Gautam to play the female lead and the reason is shocking.
Radhika reveals how before the shoot she went on a holiday and binge ate and even drank. This led to the actress putting on weight and losing the part as the makers didn’t want to take a risk. She further added that Ayushmann Khurrana who was the male lead also supported the makers to not cast Radhika as he felt the pairing wouldn’t look nice.
However, Ayushmann didn’t have any qualms in working with Radhika in Sriram Raghavan’s film, Andhadhun. Radhika Apte who was last seen in Bombairiya will also be seen in the film Raat Akeli Hai opposite actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. She will also be seen in the English films The Ashram and The Wedding Guest.
