The Ugly Truth: Bollywood’s casting couch stories
Every coin has two sides and so does Bollywood. It might appear as a very glamorous field, but it also holds a darker side and this dark side is made up with various stories of casting couch. Filmmakers offering jobs to actresses and actors in return of some sexual favour is not a new story in Bollywood and however sad it may sound, but the industry holds a maximum number of such narrations.
Here are few such casting couch stories which shocked the Bollywood industry.
Rani Mukerji’s brother, Raja Mukerji, was arrested when Pooja Mishra filed a case against him for molesting her. Pooja had apparently paid a visit to Raja to discuss a film for which she wanted to cast Rani Mukerjee and that’s when Raja tried to molest her in the car.
‘One by Two’ actress Geetika Tyagi accused director Subhash Kapoor for sexually molesting her. A video had made it to the internet wherein we could see Geetika slapping Subhash after the director accepted his crime. The video went viral on the net and a case was filed against him.
