Samantha Akkineni on casting couch: Here’s what actress said about sexual harassment in film industry

A few years ago, Sri Reddy’s allegations about casting couch that prevailed in the Telugu film industry made other stars too to come out in the open and speak about their worst nightmares

Many actresses across every film industry are now slowly breaking their silence and responding to the issue of casting couch, in public and media. Radhika Apte and Marathi artiste Usha Jadhav also joined the list and narrated their horrifying experiences on the casting couch, in an international documentary, titled ‘Bollywood’s Dark Secret’, which was shown in BBC News.

The actress also stated that she had met several men with good character in the film industry. In fact, she has been married to her co-star Naga Chaitanya who also hails from the same film industry with a filmy family background.

The actress said there are a few bad people in every industry and not only in showbiz. She said she hadn’t faced such issues in her debut movie Ye Maya Chesave, which was a blockbuster.

Samantha has also welcomed government’s move and the MAA’s decision to form a special cell to take up the issues on sexual harassment against women at workplace.
