Actress Maanvi Gagroo is a known name in entertainment circuit, be it films or the digital world, Maanvi has created her niche. Soon to be seen in the second season of web show, Four More Shots Please 2 opened up about a disappointing incident that happened with her. Maanvi came across a casting couch activity, but instead of giving in for it, she slammed the producer and also revealed about it in her recent interview with an entertainment portal.
The actress narrating the incident to Koimoi.com, mentioned how a year ago she received a call from an unknown number. The person on the call offered Maanvi, a web series for an amount which was too less according to the actress. As the conversation proceeded she asked for the script and date, and keeping the budget to the discussed at the end, if she likes the script and the makers too are willing to rope in her for the same. However, she was surprised, when the person spiked the remuneration 3X only if she is ready to compromise.
This left the actress in sheer shocked. The practices which she had heard of being prevalent in the industry some 7-8 ago, still very much in motion, despite the #MeToo movement. Not being afraid or turning a blind eye towards it she slammed the producer, rather she abused him and also told him of filing a police complaint against him.
She was quoted saying by Koimoi.com, “A year ago, I got a call from a random unknown number. They were like 'we’re doing a web series and we wanted to cast you.' They told me the budget and I said, 'nai nai yaar, this is too less and why are we talking about the budget? Tell me the script, only if I’m interested and you are interested in roping me, we can discuss money, dates and all.' So he’s like 'we’re asking people if they are okay with the budget.' When I said 'nahi, it’s less', he tripled the budget just in his next sentence. He said, ‘I can give you this much also, but aapko 'compro' (compromise) karna padega.” ALSO READ: Four More Shots Please 2 Trailer: The Famous 4 Kirti Kulhari, Bani J, Maanvi Gagroo, Sayani Gupta Are Back With A Bang
