'Kuttey' actress Radhika Madan stirred quite a controversy as she spoke about the long hours and lack of creativity that prevails in the television industry. As soon as her comments went viral, many television actors decided to speak up against the remarks she made. Now, in a latest, seasoned producer Ekta Producer has also joined the chorus of dissent against Radhika Madan.
It all started when TV actress Sayantani Ghosh, who had appeared in the fourth season of 'Naagin' expressed her disappointment at what Radhika had to say.
“Let me tell you, TV feeds hundreds and hundreds of women, and gives them employment, and biggest of movie stars also choose TV to come and promote their films. So I didn’t like that approach,” said Ghosh in an interview with Siddharth Kannan.
Taking to her Instagram story, Ekta Kapoor wrote: "Sad and shameful actors have no respect for their roots Kudos @sayantanighosh0609.”
As per the Indian Express, Radhika Madan had said that whenever she would ask for a script, the response would be: "Aap set pe chalo, script garma garam aa rahi hai.”
She also spoke about how directors would be replaced at the end in television, and they would also express rejection to any inputs she had.
Actresses like Mouni Roy and Radhika Madan first made their presence felt with TV serials, and later the duo started acting in movies.
Radhika Madan had begun her acting career with the TV serial 'Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi'.
She then went on to make her Bollywood debut with Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Pataakha' and for this role, she also won the Screen Award for Best Female Debut.
Radhika Madan has since starred in the films 'Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota', 'Angrezi Medium' and 'Shiddat', and the Netflix anthology series 'Ray'.
