Mallika Sherawat shares her casting couch experience

Mallika Sherawat has been away from the silver screen for a while now but recently she gave an interview which has put her in the limelight again. Among many unheard stories about her career, she also shared her casting couch experience. Mallika was among the first few actresses who didn't mind filming bold scenes in their movies. Due to this aspect of her career, she was judged by society as well as her co-stars.

She recalled how her male co-stars would expect indecent favours from her. Mallika told a news outlet, "I haven’t faced it directly… My rise to stardom, I was very lucky, it was very easy. I came to Mumbai, I got Khwahish and Murder. I didn’t have to struggle much. But after the movies, because Murder was such a bold movie, and that kind of a bold image was established, a lot of male actors started taking a lot of liberties with me, and they said if you can be so bold onscreen, so you can be bold with us in person also.”

She further added, “They did not differentiate between the onscreen and offscreen persona, so that is where I faced a lot of difficult situations, because I am a very strong woman, and I would tell the male actor, ‘I am sorry, I am not going to compromise’. I haven’t come to Bollywood to compromise, I have come here to make a career. That’s why they have never worked with me.”
