New Delhi, Nov 18: Casting couch has emerged as a big menace in Hollywood and Bollywood and many celebrities are now coming up in open about their bitter experience.
Celebrities in Hollywood revealed a few days back various sexual abuse incidents against the powerful producer Harvey Weinstein. After this epiisode, back home many Bollywood celebrities also spoke about casting couch.
Actors like Kalki Koechlin, Tisca Chopra, Ranveer Singh and Ayushmann Khurrana has previously spoken up about their bad experience of casting couch in the industry.
Recently, in an interview with a leading tabloid, Sunny Leone was also asked about her take on the entire issue.
Sunny said, "I haven't experienced the casting couch. I was sheltered by Daniel [Weber, husband] and my team. But does it exist in the industry? Absolutely! It's not just the women, men too face similar issues."
Leone added, "The more people speak, the louder the voice is going to be. This will instil faith in the young generation, especially women. There might be a day when our industry will be free of it. I'm proud of all the women who have taken a stand."
Leone points out that one of the reasons she has survived in the largely male-dominated industry is due to her "fearless" nature. "I am proud to have made it on my own, and the best part is that I can say yes or no to whoever without having any fear."
