When a person had openly made such a demand from Ankita Lokhande
There are many actresses in Bollywood who have been victims of the casting couch. One of these names is also Ankita Lokhande. Ankita herself revealed in an interview that the casting couch was tried her not once but twice. Sharing her first experience, Ankita said that when she was just starting her acting career, she was called to audition for a South film. Then Ankita must have been 19 or 20 years old.
Ankita gave a befitting reply
Ankita said I was asked to compromise in exchange for the role. I was smart, I was alone in the room and I asked the man, what kind of compromise do you want? Will I have to go to parties or dinners? Ankita said- I wanted to avoid that situation where someone told me directly that you have to sleep with the producer and as soon as he said that you have to sleep with the producer for the role, I played His band. I replied to him, I think you need a girl with whom he can sleep, it has nothing to do with the talent of that girl. Saying this, I left there.
The person apologized
After that, the person apologized to me and asked to take me in the film but I clearly said that I do not want to work in your film. Describing the second incident, Ankita said, when I started my innings again in films, I went to meet a man and understood only by the way he shake hands. I don't want to take names but he was a big star. I got those vibes, so as soon as we shake hands, I put my hands back and understood that I would not be able to be there.
