Anushka, Deepika and Priyanka might not have faced Casting Couch in their Career, here's why

‘Bollywood’ and ‘casting couch’ are two different terms that are sometimes spoken about on the same occasion. Many Bollywood actresses have come out in the past years and shared their nightmares in public like Kalki Koechlin, Suvreen Chawla and Tisca Chopra. In fact, the #MeToo movement was started off to expose the dark side of this industry. But what is casting couch exactly? It is a situation where aspiring actors who do not have strong connections in the industry are asked for ‘physical favors’ by directors and filmmakers.

We all know that actresses like Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone have had a big banner launch opposite superstar Shahrukh Khan. While Anushka Sharma debuted with Yashraj Films, Deepika Padukone was launched by Farah Khan in Bollywood. Now talking about our desi girl Priyanka Chopra Jonas, she started her journey by winning Miss India and later, Miss World. Eventually, she joined films and the rest is history.

The actresses that are mentioned above forayed into films with strong backing and this is why I feel that they might have been the lucky ones who could dodge the worst nightmare an aspiring artist can ever have - casting couch. What are your thoughts? Comment them below.
