Rajeev Khandelwal had recently revealed that even he faced casting couch when he was trying to foray into Bollywood from television. A leading filmmaker had propositioned him in exchange of a two-film deal.

When asked if such people should be named and shamed, Rajeev Khandelwal told a publication that he does not think so at all as it is not just about that person, but the one who gives into casting couch is equally responsible.

The actor questioned that how can one say a woman is being exploited because she does not mind getting exploited? Then she talks about the casting couch because she thinks the other man was more powerful. No, somewhere you lacked confidence, you lacked self-belief. Otherwise, you would not have allowed, said the actor.

Adding further, Rajeev Khandelwal said that casting couch is not rape where you are forced upon. He said that what he understands from the casting couch is that you are subjected to a situation where you get some benefit out of it. One who is exploited is probably a weaker person, one who did not have enough confidence that they can do without it.

Rajeev Khandelwal can be currently seen in a short film called Ateet, which is available exclusively on ZEE5 OTT platform.
