Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

Casting couch is a grim reality in film industries all over the world. In India, shockingly, many celebrities pretend to deny its existence.

However, over the years, many Indian actresses have come forward and shared their horror stories.

On Day 1 of the India Today Conclave South 2018, in Hyderabad, Kannada actress Sruthi Hariharan spoke about her run-ins with the casting couch, and shared her terrifying experiences.

Sruthi was speaking during a session titled Sexism In Cinema: Time's Up.

The meeting for my first Kannada film left me so scared and petrified. I was only 18 back then," she said, adding that she did not do the film in the end.

However, Sruthi grew wiser and tougher over the years, and learned how to battle such situations.

She related another incident that happened after a few years, "Three or four years later, a well-established Kannada producer told me on a phone call, 'We're five producers, and we will use you and exchange you however we want. I remember this, and I immediately told him, I carry a slipper in my hand and you come to me and I will hit you.

Sruthi said that the word spread, and people began to believe that she was a "weird" and a "difficult person".

However, this ironically, just boosted her career. Sruthi said proudly, "But since then, I've received only good film offers.

In the Tamil film industry, however, her phone call with the producer did not go down very well. She stopped getting good offers for Tamil films.

Her advice to women in showbiz is, "More women need to stand up, to say no to this. You need two hands to clap. Don't just blame the men. Stand up against the casting couch.

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

It is a known fact that Sushmita Sen once dated Randeep Hooda when they got close on the sets of their 2009 film 'Karma, Confessions and Holi'. But their relationship was short-lived. It has almost been a decade now ever since they parted ways.

But recently, the two exes came under the same roof when they attended the birthday bash of Rizwan Sajan, founder chairman of Danube Group in Dubai on December 28, 2017.

According to a report in mid-day, Sushmita and Randeep, who still seemed to be carrying their discomfiture even almost 10 years after their break-up, were seen avoiding each other at the party. They even made sure not to get clicked together.

The birthday bash took place at Rizwan Sajan's residence in the Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, which was attended by the who's who of Bollywood including Sunny Leone, Padmini Kolhapure, Poonam Dhillon, Madhur Bhandarkar, Annu Kapoor and others.

Interestingly, Sushmita happens to be the brand ambassador of Rizwan Sajan's company. So Sush's presence is quite comprehensible.

Does Randeep's attendance hint at a possible reconciliation? Only Sushmita and Randeep can tell.

Well, Sushmita Sen and her short-term relationships have always been the hot topics of discussion in the B-town. Last year in November, rumours did the rounds in the tinsel town that the former Miss Universe had broken up with her 10th boyfriend Ritik Bhasin, a restaurateur in Mumbai, after dating him for four years.
