Sri Reddy slams female celebrity for supporting casting couch

Saroj Khan Maine kuch bhi justify ya defend nahi kiya hai

Saroj Khan

Acclaimed film choreographer Saroj Khan's shocking statement surfaced wherein she's trying to convey that casting couch is not a big deal.

While Saroj Khan has been already receiving severe backlash for making such a regressive remark on casting couch.

"This has been going on for ages, it's not new", Khan said at a press conference in Maharashtra's Sangli. It hasn't started now.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Saroj Khan had said, "This is nothing new, there's always someone who wants to take advantage of girls". Even the government employees indulge into this.

This content is restricted to site members. "It provides livelihood at least", she said. Not only this, she further added, "Even people in the government abuse girls and women, why are you after the film industry?" If she doesn't want to fall in trap, she wouldn't.

If the court decides the district lines need to be redrawn, Chriss said that could mean more competitive elections in the future. The other sides argue that the current lines drawn can't be discriminatory because federal judges created them.

"Show your art and confidently grab offers, why do you want to sell yourself? It does not rape and leave you".

The #MeToo movement in Hollywood brought forward the deep-rooted culture of sexual harassment in the film industry. "Being an elder, you should give a good path to young actresses", she told ANI.

She said, "I lost respect for you Saroj ma'am". Her statement in itself is sickening to say the least. "It is giving a wrong indication that you have to be a slave to producers". "If I didn't come from a financially sound background I would have returned to London within a month of being in Mumbai cos of "industry folk" who think like that!" There's narrative that people in Bollywood are the worst&indulge in malpractices which isn't the case.

A section of industry and netizens are trying to explain that she has neither justified nor criticized the trend of casting couch and that she's merely telling that why only film industry is singled out for this menace. "So if it is there, then its the worst kind". But I won't react with people in a way that was personal.

Actor-turned-politician and Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) president Kamal Haasan, also shared his views on the comments, saying, "This isn't the place to discuss casting couch".
