Juhi Parmar on facing the casting couch

During an interaction with Hauterfly, Juhi Parmar got candid about facing the casting couch and that too before she turned 18 years old. Recalling her early days in the industry, the actress spoke up about a channel executive approaching her to participate in a music video. The catch – she would have to wear a bikini on camera for it. Uncomfortable with the request, the actress declined the offer.

She added that this rejection led to the channel head telling her, “There is this word called compromise, agar tumne ye nahi kiya to tumko lagta hai ki tum tik sakogi yahan pe (If you won’t compromise, then do you think you will be able to stand in this industry)?” Not keen on following the unwanted advice, Juhi told the channel head that she would happily return to her home instead of making compromises as they were against her principles.

The actress then recalled her conversation with the same channel head two years later (when she was working on Shaheen and Choodiyan). Recalling meeting him when she was driving her own second-hand Maruti 800, the actress revealed rolling down her window and telling him, “Sir maine compromise bhi nahi kiya, aur bohat ache se survive bhi kar rahi hun, aur ye gadi apne paiso ki hai (Sir I’ve not made any compromises, and I am surviving happily, and this car is off my hard-earned money).” Juhi further expressed how empowered she felt after facing that person.
