Bollywood actress has recently joined the raging debate around the issue of casting couch and sexual exploitation in India.

Bollywood actress Swara Bhaskar has revealed an incident where one person, claiming to be a producer's manager, tried to forcefully kiss her ears.

Swara opened up in a recent debate show that focused on the #MeToo movement. During the event, the Veere Di Wedding actress spoke about her own experience of casting couch.

The actress said that a man, who claimed to be the manager of a producer, once kept stressing her to tell him her residential address. Later, when she finally went to have a meeting with the man, he tried to forcefully kiss her ears, and told her "I love you baby".

This is what Swara said, "When I got out, this guy actually tried to kiss my ear and said 'I love you baby' and I kind of did that (gestures shirking away) so he got a mouthful of my hair so I was just like... so that kind of stuff happens. It's all a part of casting couch, right?".

Last month, the actress grabbed headlines for her masturbation scene from Veere Di Wedding. She was criticised for the scene as many found it obscene. She was further trolled when she had associated the particular scene with women empowerment.

The Anaarkali of Aarah actress has always been bold and speaks her mind. Though it has landed her in troubles and got trolled sometimes, we love the attitude of the actress.
