Bollywood star Vidya Balan has said that she considers herself fortunate that she did not ever encounter the so-called ‘casting couch’ which she was initially trying to make it big in Bollywood. The 37 year old acting prowess, who is famous for super hit women-oriented films like The Dirty Picture (2011) and Kahaani (2012), added that despite her passion for acting, she was not desperate to get a break in Bollywood, which is probably what saved her from being exploited by filmmakers and casting directors.
“I’m very fortunate that I never came across anything like casting couch or exploitation,” said Vidya to the media. “This was all because I was very passionate about acting, but not desperate about work. In all these years, nobody said any such thing that would hurt me. Most importantly, I didn’t let anybody do anything wrong to me.”
Vidya Balan will next be seen in the Mohit Suri drama Hamari Adhuri Kahaani, opposite Emraan Hashmi.
