The Casting Couch is one of the Bollywood’s most old and sick traditions. It is the practice in which an actor (usually a struggling one) is made to exchange sexual favours in return for a role in a movie or even play. While Bollywood might try to deny the existence of any such tradition, many actors before have attested to the fact that it does in fact exist.Ranveer-Singh

Ranveer Singh, one of Bollywood’s most outspoken actors, has gone ahead and shared his own shocking casting couch story. On top of revealing that he has faced the casting couch before, he has also admitted that it is a very common occurrence for strugglers in the industry.

In an interview with NDTV, Ranveer said that a casting director had invited him to his house, which was in Andheri. Ranveer described the man as “a highly sleazy gentleman” and said that the man did not even look at his portfolio.

Ranveer knew that something was off when the casting director did not even look at his portfolio. He says:

“I had worked as an assistant director, and I knew that there are no takers for the 500-page portfolio. Mine was very impressive, and people were intrigued enough to, at least, take a look at it.”

Ranveer went ahead and directly said no to this casting directors demands. Following this, the director began to negotiate with him. He asked Ranveer if he could, at least, see it. Speaking about this, Ranveer says:

“Later I got to know what he was interested in. When I said ‘no’, he was heartbroken like a jilted lover.”

Earlier also, Ranveer has shared his experience with casting couch in a very humorous way on an episode of Koffee with Karan.

Ranveer says that unfortunately the casting couch is very much a reality in Bollywood, and men can also be a victim of it. He said that when he spoke to other such strugglers in Bollywood, they too said that the same man had made propositions to them.strng

Ranveer Singh’s story should motivate all the current strugglers in Bollywood. Just like he denied the casting director any sexual favours, they too should do the same. Ranveer is living proof that you can do well in the industry without selling your soul to some sleazy casting director. So all the strugglers out there, persevere and stay strong. Your day, too, will come. And when it does, it shouldn’t be tainted at all.
