Kishwer Merchant in an interview with Etimes talked about her experience with the casting couch. The actor said that she was asked to ‘sleep with the hero’. However, Kishwer has never shied away from expressing herself.
Kishwer said that it happened to her in a meeting. When told to do so, she politely turned down the offer and left.
Further, she added that the industry is infamous for this but it happens in every industry. When she was asked whether the hero and producer were big names, she replied “Yes, very big names.” She also mentioned that this experience has not affected her as she was very focused back then. Kishwer is very happy with how her career has shaped up. The actor is currently expecting her first child with her husband Suyyas Rai.
A few days back actress Zareen Khan also opened up about her experience. She said in her initial days in the industry, one actor asked to rehearse a kissing scene with her.
