The casting couch in Tollywood, where allegedly the sexual favours are demanded by a powerful film producer or director from aspiring actors or actresses has become a hot topic. After few days, where one of the leading news channel presenters calling Tollywood actresses with abusive language as ‘whores,’ MAA association has organised a press-meet and gave a strong warning to the media.
During the meet, Rakul Preet Singh made sensational comments, by saying, there is no such thing called casting couch in TFI and she never faced any of those incidents in her four years of film journey in Tollywood. She stated that whether it is Tollywood or in Mumbai, she never faced casting couch and there is nothing like that happening.
Reacting on the same, on a shocking note, heroine Madhavi Latha slammed Rakul Preet Singh, by saying the Tollywood heroines are afraid to make comments on the casting couch, with a fear of losing opportunities. Madhavi said that Rakul should give guidance to the budding actresses in the industry rather than make false comments. Earlier this heroine accused that many in Tollywood are asking for sexual favours to give offers.
“In Hollywood, almost all the star heroines joined hands together and fight against the sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein, but in Tollywood, everyone fears of losing offers in a prestigious project” she commented.
We have to wait what Rakul has to say about these statements of her senior.
