Sacred Games actress Rajshri Deshpande: I am getting messages saying that I am a porn star


Just watch the opening sequence of Sacred Games, and you’d know it is going to be nothing like you have seen. Netflix’s first Indian original series stars Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui and has a string of strong and bold scene weaved into the narrative, beautifully. Which also includes Nawazuddin’s love-making scene with Rajshri Deshpande, who had to go nude for it. And those clips have, apparently, caused a stir in the actress’ life. In her latest interview, she has revealed that her nude scenes from Sacred Games made their way to porn sites. “And, the scene has made way to porn sites. Worse still, I am getting messages saying that I am a porn star,” the actress said in the interview.

“It was a big thing for me to open up my blouse, but I did it. But little did I know that my pictures from that scene will start circulating on WhatsApp,” she added. But Rajshri is not deterred by the audacity of the people trolling her. She says that she is going to ignore the comments she is receiving. “What do I do but ignore? Some of the comments are terribly cheap. I believe in Kashyap, he had told me about the scene beforehand and even said that he won’t go ahead if I am uncomfortable,” she said in an interview with  SpotBoyE.

This was not her first brush with controversy. Her Malayalam film had to be renamed from Sexy Durga to S Durga after the original title sparked a rage amongst the people. “I have been trolled a lot in the past. During the time of Sexy Durga, I even had death threats. People wrote that they will throw acid on my face. My mom was called names.” she told SpotBoy.

Earlier, in an interview, when Saif was asked if he is worried about the fact that Sacred Games might trigger controversies, he had said,  “It is a free environment, the whole point of the internet is that it is free of judgement and censorship. You don’t want to offend anyone, you just want to tell a story properly. I don’t see anything offensive about it. It is kind of a relief to not be bothered about it.”

Talking about the nude scenes he had said, “I understand nudity is not for everyone. If it offends, you can always watch something else, like Stranger Things.”
