Parched Actress Surveen Chawla Opens Up On Being A Victim Of Casting Couch!

Surveen Chawla is widening her talent horizon by all means. The actress who is receiving all the accolades for her presence in the trailer of the film ‘Parched’ has always been outspoken. Surveen will be playing the role of a dancer in the intense film. The first glimpse of the film has already impressed the masses.

Helmed by Ajay Devgn, ‘Parched’ aims to showcase the reality of the rural orthodoxy. Surveen has now commented on the unspoken truth of the industry. The actress has expressed about the menace of casting couch.


In an interview, Chawla expressed, “I guess I’ve been lucky to meet the right kind of people in Bollywood. I’ve never faced such sleazy offers in the Hindi film industry. Maybe I’ve been smart in my dealings, making sure no one gets the wrong signal. This happened in Tamil cinema where I had already auditioned and bagged an important role. This was a very big film and a very important director, who couldn’t speak Hindi. So can you believe the man’s audacity! The director had his friend call and make the offer for me to sleep with the director. The friend told me it would only be until the film was made. I said thanks but no thanks.”

The confident actress who plays sensational roles in her films further said, “Don’t know if my screen image makes me look like an easy target. But I have to say, I was offered a whole lot of supposedly bold and se*y roles after I did Hate Story 2. This industry slots and tags you. I guess it was the reputation of the franchise. I did nothing hot or sleazy in the film. There was a lot of se* in the first and the third part. But mine was a revenge story. And yet, after Hate Story I was flooded with cheesy, salacious roles. I was labeled bold. I could have given in to the temptation of doing these roles. It was money that I urgently needed to live in Mumbai.”

Surveen Chawla also spoke about the time when she was thrown out from her PG apartment in the middle of the night. The starlet said, “I was  staying as a paying guest where I was literally thrown out in the middle of the night because I used to return home at 2 am, and even later. I tried to explain I was shooting for my TV serials and had to return in an auto-rickshaw. But the landlady refused to listen. So I just left. It wasn’t easy to get my own place. I had no money, no help, no one to cook for me. I couldn’t cook. I was alone and miserable and I missed home.”

‘Parched’ is all set to release on September 23rd, 2016.
