The Adil Hussain and Radhika Apte-starrer was in news after a love-making scene from the film was leaked on the internet. The said scene, which shows Adil and Radhika both topless making love, was leaked in Auigust by culprits who are yet to be identified.

In further bad news for the film, it appears that the entire film has been leaked now and it is being sold in Kolkata for Rs 90. It is being sold off as porn given the grainy footage of the lovemaking scene.

The film is to release in India on September 23 and its trailer is supposed to be out this Friday. The film has been directed by Leena Yadav and is the story of four women who live in the parched rural landscape of Gujarat.

Earlier, while speaking to indianexpress.com, Adil had shared his chagrin about the clip being leaked and India’s double standards when it comes to sex. “I learnt about it yesterday from  alert and it felt bizarre in the beginning, he had sais, adding, “In fact, it felt very weird. It shows how sexually obsessed a lot of people in our society are. We shun it, shove it under the carpet and don’t want to show it to people.” (

He had also pointed out how the clip had been titled ‘Radhika Apte sex scene’. “The most interesting aspect is that the leaked videos is titled 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,” he had said.
