In a recent media interview, Nayanthara said that once she was offered an important role in the exchange of 'favours'. The performer was tough and gutsy in declining the offers because she believed in her performing abilities. She stated that she 'bravely' declined the offer. Without a doubt, Nayanthara established herself in the South cinema business as a result of her ability and talents. This is not, however, the first time an actor has spoken openly about his or her casting couch experience. Several people have come forward to lift the lid on the entertainment industry's dark secrets. Actress Anushka Shetty addressed the same in 2020.

During the promotion of her film Nishabdham in 2020, Anushka said, “I admit that it exists in the Telugu film industry but I never had to face it because I was straight forward I was never exploited. I have always been straightforward and frank. The actress should decide whether they want the easy ways and less fame or harder ways and sustain for a long in the entertainment industry (sic).”
