Leela Adwani |Feb 22, 2020

However, it was not the case of female stars only, Bollywood actors also faced the same. Some actors have been really brave to recall instances of harassment at the hands of directors or influential people who could “help” them get a role.

Casting couch is mostly defined as the demand by an employer or anyone in a position of power from another employee to advance their career. The fact is that it has been around since the early days of the film industry when a few powerful movies moguls wanted to make sexual advances for young and vulnerable actors in return for roles. It’s not wrong to say it was still a toxic culture among directors, producers and other power players in showbiz.

In fact, the sexual assault allegations about Hollywood mogul named Harvey Weinstein revealed the dark side of the industry. However, it doesn’t happen only in Hollywood, but Bollywood also. Closer home, many actresses in B-town have also voiced up on the examples of casting couch in the Hindi film industry. Global icon Priyanka Chopra has ever affirmed that she doesn’t think there is the only one Harvey in India, but there are a lot more.

However, it was not the case of female stars only, Bollywood actors also faced the same. Some actors have been really brave to recall instances of harassment at the hands of directors or influential people who could “help” them get a role.

Sunny Leone

Even though it would be immoral somehow, Sunny’s entry here isn’t a surprise. Many people who are so narrow-minded might assume that because she previously worked in the adult film industry, then she will be more open to such requests. However, by contrast, the actress turned down any offer to sleep with producers or directors for roles.
