The casting couch controversy has plagued Bollywood for a long time now and with few celebrities taking a stand due to a fear of being left out of the industry, a proper investigation never seemed to take action.
With the recent Saroj Khan’s stand on the subject in which she seemed to defend the atrocious act, Ranbir Kapoor too was asked about his opinion on the subject.
Ranbir quickly replied, although jokingly, “If it’s there, it’s the worst kind. I have never faced casting couch.” this brought a laugh out in everyone present at the event.
Though the subject matter is very delicate and as the media questioned further, filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra abruptly joined in and added, “What do you think our view should be,” shielding Ranbir from answering the question further.
The sex scandal rocked Hollywood last year when the revelations of Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby and Louis C.K. were reported with all the accused facing an investigation.
Bollywood too needs to help to bring this heinous act to a complete stop and the exploitation of women in particular needs to end as so many women have been taken advantage of in hopes of landing their dream role in entertainment.
