Prachi Desai Shares Her Casting Couch Experience And Marriage Plans, “It’s Not Something I’d Do If My Career Slowed Down”
Casting couch is a big problem in the glamor world and many actresses and even actors have been a victim of the same in their early years. Those in power tend to exploit those looking for work by giving them false hopes and making false promises. Many in the glamor world have come out to tell their casting couch stories from Bollywood and the TV industry. In the last few months, many actresses like Zareen Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Vidya Balan, and others recalled horrific casting couch stories. Now, actress Prachi Desai opened up about her horrific and shocking casting couch incident.
In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Prachi Desai revealed that she was asked for sexual favours in exchange for a role in a ‘big film’, which she refused. She also revealed that the director called her even after she turned down the offer, again to be refused. “I think very direct propositions were made to get cast in a certain film, a big film, but I have outright said no. Even after that director has called me, after saying no, I have still said that I am not interested in your film.”
Prachi had made her small screen debut in 2006 in the show Kasamh Se, in which she starred opposite Ram Kapoor. From there in she transitioned into movies in 2008 starring in movies like Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, Bol Bachchan and Azhar.
Meanwhile, Prachi Desai recently opened up about her marriage plans and said that she loves her independence too much to give it up for marriage at this point in time. While speaking to ETimes, Prachi said, “My parents have brought me up in such a way that I never saw marriage as a safety net or as something I would do if my career slowed down for a bit or something didn’t work out.”
