After Saroj Khan, Rakhi Sawant Admits There Is Casting Couch In Bollywood

After, Saroj Khan made breaking headline on talking about casting couch and blaming the Film industry alone is unfair and there are many other areas where a girl’s advantage is taken. Now, drama queen Rakhi Sawant join the ongoing debate on the casting couch in the film industry.

Rakhi too joined the ongoing casting couch debate and admitted that she also become the victim of it: 

“When I was a struggler, yes I did face the casting couch. But it wasn’t as if every producer or director I approached was guilty. As in every walk of life, there is sexual corruption in the film industry also. As far as I was concerned, this was just in the beginning. But I had talent and I didn’t have to give in. I learned to say no. And I used my talent as an artist to make my way through life. I suggest all strugglers have patience and not surrender to the temptation of shortcuts.”

She supports the ace choreograph Saroj Khan and said:

“Nobody rapes anyone in this film industry. It’s all consensual and voluntary. In this, I fully support Sarojji. At least she has spoken her mind and let the world know the truth. People in Bollywood don’t speak out the truth about the casting couch although it is happening right here in front of their eyes. They feel they are making their way up why should they bother with what’s happening around them? I really admire Sarojji for letting the world know the reality that they have to face every day. Sarojji has seen what goes here. I totally agree with her.”

She also opened up about wild sexual favors in the film industry and said:

“Young girls are willing to make any compromise to get going in their career. Aaj kal to ladkiyan kehti hain, Kuch bhi kar lo, mujhe kaam de do’. Iss mein producer ki kya ghalti hai? (Girls, these days, are ready to do anything to get work. Why to blame producers for this?) Sarojji is not wrong. A lot of girls come in the film industry to become heroines but become something else… you understand what I am saying? Call it destiny or what you will.”

To all the newcomers or youngsters who wanted to enter in industry, she said:

“Have faith in your talent. Have patience. Don’t give in to shortcuts. I’ve seen so many girls throw themselves at producers. This is not good. I don’t want to take any names. Lekin aisa hota hai (But this happens). It shouldn’t be so. Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra are superstars because of their hard work and not for any other reason. The ones who take the shortcut end up on a different track altogether. Don’t do this to yourself. And don’t blame producers for taking what you have to offer.”
