Rashami Desai, one of the most popular actresses in the television industry, was last seen on Bigg Boss 13. She had a great journey on the show, and was loved by many for playing a clean game. Now, in a recent interview, she made some shocking revelations and opened up about her horrific casting couch experience, at the young age of 16. She revealed that the man tried taking advantage of her and molesting her, and tried his level best to spike her drink and get her unconscious.
Rashami Desai, on Pinkvilla’s series Woman Up, said that she was 13 years old when she started her career and didn’t belong to a filmy background. She also said that she did not know anyone from the industry, and remembers being told that if she didn’t go through casting couch, she wouldn’t get work. Speaking about her horrific incident, she said, “His name is Suraj and I don't know where he's now. First time we met, he asked me about my statistics and I didn't know what it meant back then. I told him I don't know and he knew that she's completely unaware of things. He was the first person who tried taking advantage of me and tried to molest me in some or the other way."
Recollecting the shocking incident, she said that the man called her for an audition one day and she found out there was no one else, except for him. “There were no cameras and he tried his level best to spike my drink and get me unconscious. I kept saying I don't want to do. Somehow, he wanted to psyche my mind.”
Rashami then managed to come out after two and a half hours, and told her mother about it, who slapped him the next day and warned him that this was just the beginning, and she would screw him the next time.
