5 Celebs Who Got Real AF About 'Casting Couch' in Bollywood

"It's a question of supply and demand."




1) Ranveer Singh

"Casting couch is a very real thing. I have experienced it first-hand," "When I said 'no' (to his demands), he cried like a jilted lover. Later, I got to know that he does it to everyone."

2) Ayushmann Khurrana

"I have been through that (casting couch) initially when I was part of the industry. I was a TV anchor, so a casting director directly told me that I would have to do it. So, I told him that if I was not straight, I might have given it a thought, but I can't do it. So yeah, the casting couch exists, but eventually, it's your talent or potential as an actor or performer which would last. You don't need to give in to such stuff."

3) Kangana Ranaut

"Fortunately, I never had to go through the casting couch. Honestly, I feel somebody has to be really dumb to think that they'd get a role for sleeping around. And I have never been so dumb — not even at the age of 17 when I started my career. People should use their common sense. It's stupid if you actually believe someone who tells you that he or she is giving you a role only if you please him or her."

"If the casting couch route was so easy, then all the women from the red light area would have been superstars today."

4) Kalki Koechlin

"I must say, of course, it exists! It did try and entangle me in its grip but I am slippery, I always managed to get out of it. The minute I felt uncomfortable, I walked away! The crux of the matter is that a bad actor, however much she works her way through the casting couch, will never sustain. She still remains a bad actor! The casting couch is not the answer to any aspiring actor's route to success."

5) Tisca Chopra

"It's a question of supply and demand. The supply of actors is far greater than their demand and so the directors and producers demand something extra for giving chances to aspirants, I have never heard of anybody raping anyone."

She herself has been a victim but she managed to escape from the situation.
