From Radhika Apte to Ayushmann Khurrana and Ranveer Singh, several celebs have earlier shared their ordeal on casting couch. Now, actress Esha Gupta has shared her horrifying casting couch experience. In an interview, Esha Gupta opened up about a filmmaker who asked her for sexual favours for work and when she refused, she was kicked out of the film.
Esha told Spotboye, "When I refused, the co-producer told the maker that he did not want to see me in the film. What am I doing on set? After this, some makers even refused to cast me in films. I had heard that these people used to say about me that if I won't do anything then what is the point of taking me in the film?”
The 'Jannat 2' actress also shared another incident while she was shooting outdoors and two makers tried to trap her on the casting couch but she understood.
Esha said that that person thought that she would fall for the trap during the outdoor shoot, but she did not go to sleep alone and called her makeup artist to sleep in her room. She added, "They think that if we need work then we can get anything done.”
On the work front, Esha was last seen in 'Aashram' along with Bobby Deol. She will be next seen in 'Desi Magic' and 'Hera Pheri 3'.
