As we all know that Radhika Apte is one of the most capable actresses in Bollywood. Currently, she is hectic in promoting her film Monica, O My Darling which is airing on Netflix nowadays. This movie stars Apte in the lead role along with actors Rajkummar Rao, and Huma Qureshi. During the promotions of the movie, the Andhadhun actress opened up on losing commercial films to younger actors and added how she feels about the same.  

Earlier in 2022, Radhika revealed to a daily, “What I’m really struggling with is (people unable) to combat age, especially in the industry with people going through surgeries. I know so many of my colleagues who have gone through so many surgeries to change their faces and bodies.”

Referring to this statement, Radhika was lately questioned about facing rejection because the other actors get valued more to which she told to a media source, “There’s truth to this, but it becomes sensationalized and it changes its tonality. Age is a factor and you cannot deny the fact that people want younger actresses in bigger commercial films; it’s just a fact, a younger or conventional image that they want. There have been days where you are told that ‘yeah you don’t have xyz’ and we need xyz. You can see the number of surgeries people do. There is an image that we are chasing and not just in India, across the globe, which a lot of women are fighting against it.”

Film Monica, O My Darling is a crime comedy thriller directed by Vasan Bala and was released on Netflix on November 11, 2022.
