Class Of 2020 Actress Nibeditaa Paal On Casting Couch: 'It’s Not Correct To Objectify People By Promising Them Work'
Everyone who comes in this industry always has some specific kind of role which they want to do or want to experience. Class of 2020 actress Nibeditaa Paal is no different. Ask the actress what she wishes to do and this is what she replied.

"Honestly you can call it very cliche but I’ve grown up watching Bollywood movies! And SRK has been my all time favourite. I would die to do a romantic drama like a DDLJ or a KKHH! I’m yet to explore a hard core romantic project but would love to do one for sure to begin with. I’ve always been in love with romantic films and shows! Or a supernatural show that would be pretty cool." ALSO READ: Bigg Boss 14 Wild Card Contestant Naina Singh's BFF Nibedita Paal: 'She Is Going To Give Tough Competition To The Girls'- EXCLUSIVE

However, it's not all rosy here. The prevailing casting couch in the industry has been experienced by many and Nibeditaa is no exception. Talking about the same, she said, "Yes, I have been in some very unpleasant situations which have been very awkward for me. But I have always been very clear about it and have conveyed the same to whoever I meet. I am all about working organically. And I believe it’s a personal choice if you don’t want to do it and nobody can force you into it. Although I do believe that something needs to be done about this whole situation. As it’s not correct to objectify people by promising them work." ALSO READ: 'I Was Nervous About The Intimate Scenes': Ankush Rampal On His Series With Class Of 2020 Actress Nibedita Paal- EXCLUSIVE

In today's time where in every field there is so much competition, the Television industry is no different. Ask her how difficult it becomes to get some work here and Nibeditaa says, "Absolutely, there is so much competition here and it is growing each day. So one has to work really hard to bag a role as there are just too many options available. It’s easy to get replaced or sidelined if you aren’t on your toes at all times. But having said that, there are numerous opportunities available, so, you just have to be patient and keep going."
