With more and more Bollywood stars coming forth to discuss casting couch and sexual harassment in the film industry, another actress has made revelations about the gruesome exploitation in order to avoid such scenarios for budding actors.
Bringing up the issue on surface is Pooja Kumar who is a known face in South movies such as Kamal Haasan’s ‘Vishwaroopam‘ and ‘Uttama Villain’, and in the recent Telugu movie ‘PSV Garuda Vega’. Pooja is firm about her decision and regrets being among those actresses who claimed that they didn’t have to go through the casting couch.
Although she never experienced it, she states that an observant of a wrongdoing is equally responsible as the perpetrator. Pooja says that it’s important to talk about the victims who faced the sexual exploitation in the industry to see to that our sisters don’t have to face the same pain in the future.
She advises that compromising to such acts only to reach the top is not worth going for. There are other alternatives and with sheer hard work one can achieve anything. With an aim to reform the society, Pooja wishes to delve into the matter and make the industry a better place for women to work.
