Radhika Apte is now preparing for the next film Forensic, in which she will share screen time with Vikrant Massey. In the Spill The Tea with Sneha Menon Desai for Film Companion segment, Radhika talked about the industry's beauty and body requirements.

Especially how actors cope with the expectation to appear a specific way, according to Radhika, who was asked to undergo 'jobs' upon her body at the start of her career.

Yet, she never felt obliged to do anything to her appearance, but rather, she felt extremely angry.

“I had that pressure before. When I was new, I was told to do lots of jobs on my body and face. First meeting I had, I was told to change my nose. Second meeting I had I was told to get a boob job. Then that continued, then I was told to do something to my legs, then something to my jaw, and something to refill somewhere here (points to her cheeks) then botox," Radhika explained.

As they were speaking this, the actress went on to explain how it took her 30 years just to colour her hair and also how having an injection was a far-fetched concept for her. "It just put me off. I never felt pressurized by it. In fact, I felt angrier and in fact all of that helped me actually love my body even more because I was like ‘I love my body,’” she revealed.

Radhika went on to describe an incident in which a friend who had botox questioned her why she wasn't getting things done. According to the actress, she doesn't wish to despise aging since it is a gradual phenomenon, and she does n't want to appear or become ageless.

“But man, I'm just a bit sick and tired of people constantly doing that and which is why it doesn't affect me." Radhika said towards the end of the interview. "I mean it affects me, but it doesn't affect me in the way that I would like to do it ever.”

Forensic will be featured on the OTT platform ZEE5 on June 24. In addition to Radhika and Vikrant, the cast includes Prachi Desai, Rohit Roy, Subrat Dutta, and several others.
