In a shocking turn of events, the leaked video of 'Kabali' actress Radhika Apte and Adil Hussain's sex scene from "Parched" is being sold as porn stuff in some parts of Kolkata.

According to a Mid-Day report, pirated prints of "Parched" are being circulated as porn DVDs for Rs. 90 each. The makers have apparently alerted the cyber cell police, but there has been no update on any action the police is taking.

Produced by Ajay Devgn's production house Ajay Devgn FFilms (ADF), "Parched" opens in theatres on Sept. 23 and stars Tannishtha Chatterjee, Surveen Chawla, Lehar Khan and Riddhi Sen in key roles. Directed by Leena Yadav, the film has already won accolades at several international film festivals.

About "Parched" sex scene being leaked online

"Parched" actor Adil made a strong statement about the noise around the nude scene from the movie that went viral on messaging applications. Calling the incident "weird," Adil told the Indian Express that the sex scene is being labelled as "Radhika Apte sex scene" and not as "Adil Hussain sex scene."

"That's because a man doing it is just another matter whereas when a woman does it, it does matter. It is only then when it becomes a sex scene. It also shows the patriarchal society that we live in. In the West, such scenes are normally shown in their films," he pointed out.

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time that Radhika has been dragged into a controversy of this kind. Last year, a frontal nude scene from her short film with Anurag Kashyap was leaked online. It was meant to release only in the international circuits, which was why she didn't mind the role.
