Richa Chadha’s EXPLOSIVE statement on casting couch in Bollywood breaks the internet! – This Friday, Richa Chadha will be seen reprising her character of Bholi Punjaban in Fukrey Returns. But the actress is making headlines for her explosive revelations about casting couch in Bollywood.
The Harvey Weinstein sex scandal in Hollywood has opened up dialogue on the topic of casting couch in tinsel town once again. Known for her bindaas confessions, Richa got candid about the issue in an interaction with Firstpost. The actress was quoted as saying, “When I came to Bollywood, I was asked to send messages to an actor. I was suggested to go on a date with him. When I said he is married then I was asked to strike a friendship with any cricketer. I used to get such advises. Today, I have very few friends in the film industry.”
Not just that, in a previous interview with the Hindustan Times, Richa had stated that we will lose a lot of heroes when B-Town opens up on sexual harassment. She was quoted as saying, “I don’t see that happening immediately given the culture of naming and shaming in our country. But when it happens, as it is happening in Hollywood right now, the entire power structure will change. People, who you see making feminist films and claiming to be progressive etc, they will all come tumbling down.”
She didn’t stop and went on to add, “We will lose a lot of heroes and several people will lose their lives’ work, their legacies. I think that’s what people will attack — they can’t attack them monetarily so they will go after the legacies. And it will happen, I would think in the next four-five years.”
