A few days ago, popular actor Rakul Preet spoke about the sensitive issue of casting couch and made it clear that she had never experienced such a thing in her entire career.
“People have been talking about casting couch a lot. But I just feel that they talk more about us because we are under the scanner and the limelight. I personally have done so many films and I have never, ever come across a single person who has tried to act funny with me,” she had added.
As it so happens, her comments did not go done too well with actors Sri Reddy and Madhavi Lathi. The ladies ripped her apart and accused her of lying. They also went to the extent of saying that she was painting a rosy picture in order to avoid missing out on offers.
Now, Rakul has reacted to the whole controversy and made it clear that she is going to stand by her original remark. Reacting to Sri Reddy and Madhavi Latha’s harsh remarks, she said that she does not even know who they are and has never seen them in any film. Rakul added that her original remark was based on her own experiences and there is no question of her retracting them.
“If I have not experienced casting couch, then how can I talk about it? And if they think I am lying, then I have nothing to say. I still stand by what I’ve said,” she added.
These are some strong remarks and can create quite a buzz amongst movie goes. On a related note, Rakul currently has NGK in her kitty. It is a Selvaraghavan directorial and will see her act opposite Suriya and the fast-rising Sai Pallavi. She also has a Bollywood film with Ajay Devgn in her kitty.
