One can surely get mesmerized looking at the glamour world of Bollywood, and the luxurious lifestyle lived by the celebs in the Bollywood industry. Bollywood stars never leave a single stoned unturned to succeed in their journey in the city of dreams. But this lavish life is a matter of luck and hard work of these stars. B-town beauty, Isha Koppikar now recalls the moment when she was put in the casting couch situation by an actor.

Isha Koppikar in a recent conversation with Pinkvilla revealed about battling with casting couch at the age of 15 in Bollywood. She said, “Yes, I have been propositioned. One producer told me, ‘This film is happening. Call up this actor, you need to be in the good books of actors. So I called him. He’s told me his full timetable. He’s an early morning person and he goes to the gym at this time. He asked me to meet him in between his dubbing and something he was doing. He asked me who I was coming with and I told him I will be coming with my driver. He said, ‘Don’t come with anybody’. I was not 15 or 16 then. I knew what was happening. So I told him, ‘I am not free tomorrow, I’ll let you know’.”

Elaborating more on this, she said that she can’t be forced into doing all these things just for a role. This might intimidate a lot of people, but when a woman says no, they can’t take it. She reveals that she decided to never work with that actor again in the future.

Isha who has established herself as one of the talented actresses in the South film industry had marked her debut in Bollywood with Hrithik Roshan‘s film, ‘Fiza’. She also reveals that some of the top secretaries have inappropriately touched her and thus she had to start learning self-defense in order to be safe.
