When Anu Aggarwal was asked if she ever had to face casting couch in the film industry, to which she replied , “Not really. But yes one top director had come to my house citing he has a role for me. The director came to my house and took out the whiskey bottle. He started drinking it on the pretext of telling me a script. I sensed something fishy and politely asked him to leave. I told him off. That is what I am trying to say, women always has the choice.”
