Veteran choreographer Saroj Khan
stirred up a hornet's nest when she
defended the the tradition of casting
couch in Bollywood. Khan said that sexual
harassment is not just restricted to
Bollywood, and blaming the film industry
alone is unfair. She added that casting
couch is done with consent and provides
This is going on from 'baba Adam's times',
it is not new. Someone or the other
always try to take an advantage of a girl.
The government does it too, then why are
we only behind the film industry? It
provides livelihood at least. Does not rape
and leave you. It is up to the girl, what she
wants to do. If you don't want to fall into
wrong hands, you won't. If you have art,
why would you sell yourself? Don't take
the film industry's name, it is everything to
us," added the choreographer.
Her remarks received a lot of flak from film
circle as well as aam junta. If Telugu
actress Sri Reddy slammed Khan for
making such a loose comment, singer
Sophie Chiudry, too, expressed her
disappointment over Khan's statement.
But Khan has finally found support in
actress Richa Chadha, who said that
Khan's statement was misinterpreted.
"I think people are making a mountain of
a molehill. There's a narrative that people
in Bollywood are the worst and indulge in
malpractices which isn't the case. She
meant to say it takes place in all industries,
why is Bollywood being singled out?," she
Saroj Khan later aplogised for her
comment on casting couch.
