Vidya Balan, who portrayed Basavatarakam’s role in NTR’s biopic has shared her side of the casting couch experiences in the film industry when she tried to do South movies, especially her mother tongue Malayalam and then, Tamil.
Once a director kept insisting that they meet in a room instead of in the coffee shop she offered to meet. He understood her silence and went away, though. The actress also faced many rejections because of her appearance. She was considered as ugly as she didn’t meet the demands of the people making those films.
Some people even made her believe that she was ugly to the extent that she even stopped looking at herself in the mirror. Maybe, Casting couch experiences have become very common and many had developed a kind of shield as they lost that sensitiveness towards the issue.
However, the issue is right there. One has to accept it without reservations and it is one of the most vicious kinds of menace. Today, Vidya Balan’s reputation as a performer is mainly because of the powerful roles she essayed with utter conviction.Don't MissView: 'Never Before' Headache for Top Stars!As soon as the buzz regarding Superstar Mahesh Babu’s next with Vamshi Paidipally being put...Don't MissHit Sneak Peek – Provides Chills And Thrill In Equal DosesThe makers have revealed a special four-minute sneak-peek from the movie Hit.
