Elli AvrRam recalls horrific experiences of casting couch
Elli AvrRam has opened up on casting couch and has revealed about her horrific experiences that she had during her initial days in the Bollywood industry. Elli is not from the industry and being an outsider she became the victim of the casting couch.
Sharing her ordeal, Elli told Pinkvilla, “I had gone for a few meetings. I met these two directors who especially shook my hand and scratched it with one of the fingers. After that one meeting, I asked my friend about it. He was shocked and said, “Oh, no did he do that? Do you know what that means?’ I didn’t know and he told me that he wanted to sleep with me.”
While talking about body shaming, Elli also said that a girl related to Bollywood told her that she won’t be able to become an actress due to her height. She said, “I was told I needed to lose weight. They said I’m short and I was told about my forehead and my teeth. Within two months of me being in India, I felt I don’t have it. Some felt I looked old like an aunty because of my long hair.”
Elli made her Bollywood debut with ‘Micky Virus’. She is also a great dancer and participated in ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’. Her recent song was ‘Zilla Hilela’ from ‘Jabariya Jodi’. She is currently seen on the web series ‘The Verdict – State vs Nanavati’ that is streaming on ALTBalaji.
