SHOCKING: Minissha Lamba shares her casting couch encounters; also talks about plastic surgery
Minissha Lamba recalls her casting couch horrors. Also, the actress spoke about rumours of undergoing plastic surgery.
Bollywood actress Minissha Lamba was grabbing headlines for the last few weeks after finding love again after her divorce from Ryan Tham.
Today, another piece of news goes viral where Minissha is talking about the casting couch in Bollywood.
In the last few years, many Indian actresses such as Swara Bhasker, Sherlyn Chopra, Radhika Apte, Surveen Chawla, Chitrangada Singh, and Kangana Ranaut were spoken about facing the casting couch to get work in the film industry.
Now, Minissha is the latest celebrity to join them as she remembered her casting couch horrors. The actress revealed that she has faced the casting couch a few times in her career and what precautions she took to dodge unwanted sexual advances.
In an interview with popular RJ Siddharth Kannan, she said how people used to approach her to meet for dinner to talk films, but she was quick to pick the hint, "I think in any industry where there are men, a lot of men are going to try. This industry is not any different. I definitely have faced things like the person not confirming for the film and saying, ‘Why don’t you meet for dinner? Let’s talk.’ And I am like, ‘No, why don’t we meet in the office? I don’t know about dinner but I am definitely free, we can set up a time and meet in the office tomorrow, if you want to discuss further.’ I have handled it like that. It has not happened much to me to my face. But whenever it has happened, I have handled it in a way where I have pretended not to understand what you are saying."
Besides the casting couch topic, Minissha also discussed the rumours of undergoing plastic surger. "No, not at all. Girl-next-door look maintain karne ke liye plastic surgery karna (Undergoing plastic surgery to maintain the girl-next-door look)… I mean, that is ridiculous. But I would say no,” she said.
Minissha Lamba made her Bollywood debut witth Yahaan in 2005. She later did films such as Bachna Ae Haseeno, Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd, Kidnap and more. In 2014, she participated in Bigg Boss but was evicted in 42 days. Currently, the actress is busy with her maiden digital project.
