SHOCKING! Divyanka Tripathi On Facing Casting Couch: 'I Was Told You Have To Be With This Director And You’ll Get A Big Break’
Popular television actress Divyanka Tripathi is the latest celebrity to have voiced her opinions on facing the casting couch in the industry. In a recent interview, the Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 star poured out her heart and recalled a time when had no money to pay her bills. She revealed back then when she had started afresh in the industry, people asked her to ‘spend time with a director in order to get a big break.’ However, she said she has always believed in her talent.

In a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, Divyanka mentioned that there were people who tried to make her believe that the casting couch is quite a common thing and that everyone is ‘doing it in the industry. The actress was quoted as saying, “You finish a show, and then your struggle starts again. There was a time when there was no money. I had to pay my bills, EMIs, etc. There was a lot of pressure. Then an offer comes, ‘You have to be with this director and you’ll get a big break’. But why me? I was told that ‘you are really intellectual, this, that.’ Selling it off like my life will be made just by that and everyone is doing it.” 

The Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actress added that she always believed in her talent and was quite confident about bagging a project on her capabilities, not by ‘being with a director.’  “This is before the #MeToo movement. People who make such offers, and will convince you in such a way that everyone in the industry is doing it. This is how they lure you that if you don’t do it then you will stay behind. Nothing can happen in your career. But I would have a lot of fun because I knew this was all rubbish. I had seen it in the beginning; I had got my first job based on my talent. So if I got my first job based on my talent, so the next will also be the same,” Divyanka further asserted.

Divyanka Tripathi rose to fame with her brilliant stint on the 2006 show ‘Banoo Main Teri Dulhan’ and post this, she had been a part of many popular daily soaps. She was last seen in Rohit Shetty’s stunt-based reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 where she was the first runner-up.
