These days actresses are not holding back and they are opening up about their casting couch experience without any fear. After Vidya Balan and Zareen Khan now actress Surveen Chawla has come forward to share her casting couch experience that she didn’t have just once but five times throughout her journey in the industry.

In an interview with Pinkvilla, Surveen said that she had a casting couch experience, twice in Bollywood and thrice down south. Talking about her casting couch experiences in the Hindi film industry, the actress said that it happened quite recently. She went on to share, “One filmmaker wanted to see how my cleavage looks and one filmmaker wanted to see how my thighs looked. This kind of stuff happens.

Surveen added, “Then came south and that was my biggest blow. I faced casting couch thrice. There was a time I was told to accompany a film director for a recce and I was told ‘I want to know every inch of your body’. I just started ignoring calls from then on.

She recalled another ugly incident that happened down south. Surveen said it involved a ridiculously big director down south, a National Award-winning one! She had a very long audition there, it almost lasted a shift. She had to do various things – a monologue or saying something impromptu. As she was unwell and she returned after the audition. Then the director suddenly offered to come to Mumbai. She found it very creepy and said ‘no, thank you’.

The actress also said that sometimes she was asked to keep more than a professional relationship. “On the same phone call, in which I was not speaking to the director as he could only speak Tamil and no English or Hindi. He spoke to me through someone, maybe a friend. That person told me on the phone that ‘sir needs to know you, he needs to understand you as this film will take a long time to make. And then he jumped to ‘only till the film and then you can stop’. I very innocently asked him to ‘stop what’. So, he said ‘just till the film this will go on; then you can stop’. I still remember my words. I told him that you are knocking on the wrong door. If sir thinks I am talented then I am still willing to work in his film but I cannot barter myself. And that film also didn’t happen, shared the ‘Scared Games’ actress.

Surveen recently gave birth to a beautiful Baby girl. On the work front, she was last seen in the hit web series ‘Sacred Games 2’ alongside Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
