We have seen in the past a couple of celebrities open up about their casting couch experiences. One of them is Rithvik Dhanjani, who had once shared his casting couch experience while revealing spine-chilling details. The actor had undergone such an indecent situation in 2018 when a casting director tried to cross all the limits.
It so happened when he was standing in a queue for an audition and the casting director spotted him from the line and asked him to step aside. After his 5 minutes performance, the casting director told him that he can get easily selected if he decides to work for his company. The actor, who was new to the city, eagerly agreed as he wanted an opportunity to explore his acting talents.
But little did he know that things will turn scary in the future. During his interaction with Zoom’s Open House, Rithvik Dhanjani shared his ordeal and revealed about being touched inappropriately. He told to the leading publication, “He takes me to this dingy lane and right next to lotus bedroom, vahan par ek chota sa lane jaa raha hai, chote naange bache bhaag rahe hai, ajeeb si jagah, choti si jagah and I am like, ‘yahan par office hai? Chalo bhai’. So we went inside the lane and on the right side, there was this door that opens up to a staircase that goes up. He walks up and after four steps, he turns around and says ‘come, my office’.”
Rithvik Dhanjani further added that the same person had then told him that the person had touched his thigh when he was telling him that the industry has two kinds of people- smart workers and hard workers.
Rithvik Dhanjani then added, “I shut the laptop, bandh kiya and I just zoomed off. I ran out of that place.”
