Sri Reddy hits out a Saroj Khan for ‘defending’ casting couch; read other Twitter reactions


Renowned choreographer Saroj Khan spoke about casting couch but later she had to face backlash for the statement on social media. She even said sorry afterwards but the damage was done. Speaking to news agency PTI, Saroj Khan said, “I have already said I am sorry. But you don’t know the question that was asked… And now there’s so much ruckus.”

And now, the actress who is news for the protest against casting couch in Telugu film industry Sri Reddy has said that she has lost all respect for Saroj Khan, “I lost respect for you Saroj ma’am. Being an elder you should give a good path to young actresses. It is giving a wrong indication that you have to be a slave to producers: Sri Reddy (actress who alleged that women are sexual exploited by producers) on Saroj Khan’s remark”, she said to ANI.

Even Bollywood actress Sophie Choudry took to her Twitter handle and wrote “Can’t begin to think what thousands of girls go through in the hope that their “dreams” will come true! Nobody wants to sleep with someone for work. But they are made to feel it’s the only way & “acceptable”. And for those who don’t, it’s a tough road! This has to stop! #TimesUp”

People on Twitter have reacted on the issue and it has become a raging topic of the day, so here are some of the tweets.
