After Ranveer Singh, actor Ayushmann Khurrana also confirmed that casting couch does exist in Bollywood and he also faced it.
In an intreview to a leading news agency, Ayushmann Khurrana confessed, ''I have been through that 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.''
Ayushmann Khurrana further added, ''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.''
Not so long ago, ranveer Singh too, shared his experience of casting couch with a leading news channel, "Casting couch is a very real thing. I have experienced it first-hand.''
Ranveer said that as a newcomer, he was to meet a gentleman at his Andheri home and for that he made an impressive portfolio but he said that the man did not even look at it.
"Which means he wasn't interested in it at all. Later, I found out what he was interested in. He told me, 'You have to be smart. You have to be sexy. Jo smart hai, jo sexy hai, wo aage nikal jaata hai," Ranveer Singh revealed.
Ranveer Singh also revealed that he was promised access to production houses in exchange for sexual favours. "When I said 'no' (to his demands), he cried like a jilted lover. Later, I got to know that he does it to everyone.''
