Nayanthara reveals that she was once asked for ‘favours’ in order to get a role.
It is no secret that the casting couch exists in the film and television industries, and many celebrities have come forward over the years to relate their traumatic experience. Nayanthara, the latest celebrity to speak out about this plague, stated that she was approached with an offer in return for a key role in a film. The actor was brave enough to turn down the offer and believe in her acting abilities.
She stated in an interview with a media outlet that she was requested for certain “favours” in exchange for a big role in a film. The Godfather actress bravely declined the offer, believing that her skills would propel her to stardom sooner or later.
Nayanthara’s opinion proved correct, and she is now at the top of her career, solidifying her acting credentials by appearing in several blockbusters. Nayanthara’s revelations regarding the casting couch have sparked a new wave of debate about this serious issue. Despite the fact that the #Metoo movement revealed some well-known figures who have mistreated women, the casting couch problem remains.
Aside from this interview, Nayanthara has dominated news due to the release of her highly anticipated pan-India action blockbuster Jawan, directed by Atlee. According to sources, Shah Rukh Khan will also appear in the film, which will begin filming on February 1.
