A lot has been said about the casting couch in Bollywood, and celebrities – like Ranveer Singh – have revealed that they previously received ‘offers’. And in a recent interview to DNA, Ayushmann Khurrana also revealed that he was directly asked to sleep with someone in exchange for a role. This happened back when he was still a TV actor.
Here’s what he said:
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.
