Controversial queen Rakhi Sawant who is known for weird and funny antics, opened up about casting couch. She said, “When I entered Film Industry. I did face the casting couch. As in every walk of life, there is sexual corruption in the film industry also. I also faced casting couch but this was just in the beginning when I was struggler but I had the talent. So I used my talent as an artiste to make my way through life and started to say no. “
Rakhi Sawant supports Veteran choreographer Saroj Khan in the opinion that there is no coercion involved when sexual favours are exchanged. She added, “Nobody rapes anyone in this film industry. It is all consensual and voluntary. I fully support Saroj Khan.” She said, “ Now days girls are ready to do anything to get work. Why to blame producers for this?
Rakhi added,” Every director and producer didn’t behave like that but still there is a sexual compromise in the Entertainment industry.
On the otherside, Telugu actress Sri Reddy called Saroj Khan’s statement wrong . During the media interaction recently she said, I lost respect for you Saroj ma’am. Being an elder you should give a good path to young woman artist. It is giving a wrong indication that you have to be a slave to producers.”
