Mumbai: Casting couch is nothing new for Bollywood and TV. Big actors of the glamor industry have also faced this. Actress Divyanka Tripathi reveals that she has faced casting couch and many tried to take advantage of her. Then she did not know much about the industry. Not only this, there were threats to ruin her career but she soon came to know that it was all rubbish. Divyanka says that because of her parents and sister, she always found it easy to take right and wrong decisions.
Talking about the early days of her career, Divyanka said that she prefers to stay in her comfort zone, so she never attended industry parties. In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Divyanka said, “When you get your first break, a lot of people take advantage of it in very different ways. Where you have to walk using your brain. You are robbed in a way in your contract. If it is not known in the beginning, more work is done in less money.
I was almost a child when I arrived. I didn’t know anyone could talk like this. I just knew what is right and what is wrong, because Mummy Papa and Didi trained very well, so I knew only that much. A show ends and then your struggle begins. There was a time when I didn’t have money. I had to pay my bills, EMIs and other expenses. There’s a lot of pressure. Then an offer comes, you have to go with that director and you will get a big break. But why me, then I was told that you are really Intellectual… Yeh.. That. It is told in such a way that my life will be saved from this and everyone is doing this. Divyanka tells that yes it is before Me Too. These people who talk like this to you will tell them that nothing will happen without it.
You can’t move forward. Your career will be over but I used to enjoy it because I knew it was all rubbish. I had seen from the beginning that I got my first job because of talent. So if I had got my first job, I would get it further. Such things were spread about Divyanka that she throws a lot of tantrums. To this he said, there was no source to express his views at that time. In today’s time there is social media, so you can go there and speak your mind. At that time I tried to tell but no one is listening.
I was told that you are very tantrums and we do not want to work with you. Divyanka gained popularity with the serial Banu Main Teri Dulhan. After this his another hit serial Yeh Hai Mohabbatein came. She was the runner up of Khatron Ke Khiladi 11.
