Rashami Desai reveals her casting couch experience
Mumbai : Bigg Boss 13 contestant Rashami Desai spoke about her traumatic experience of casting couch in her recent interview. She revealed that at an early age of 16, when she attempted to make an entry in the Entertainment world, a man tried to take her advantage.
Speaking about her experience, she told Pinkvilla, "I still remember that I was told if you don’t go through casting couch, you won’t get work. His name is Suraj and I don’t know where he’s now. First time we met, he asked me about my statistics and I didn’t know what it meant back then. I told him I don’t know and he knew that she’s completely unaware of things. He was the first person who tried taking advantage of me and tried to molest me in some or the other way."
Rashami said that the man even called her for an audition but tried to molest her by spiking her drink. "One day, he called me for an audition and I was all excited. Main pohuch gayi aur waha koi nahi tha except him (So I reached the place but there was no one there except him). There were no cameras and he tried his level best to spike my drink and get me unconscious. I kept saying I don’t want to do. Somehow, he wanted to psyche my mind. From there, I managed to come out after two and a half hours and I told my mother everything," she said.
She revealed her ordeal to her mother, then the man was called to meet them at a restaurant where her mother slapped him. "She told him, ‘If you do this again with my daughter, you remember that this just the beginning, next time I’ll screw you’," Rashami said.
