Surveen Chawla, who was last seen in Netflix's India original series, Sacred Games Season 2 has recently revealed that she has faced casting couch experiences fives time in her overall career, twice in Bollywood and thrice in the south film industry.
Detailing one such incident, Surveen in an interview with Pinkvilla revealed, "A director wanted to see how my cleavage looked. Another director wanted to see how my thighs looked." Surveen reveals she was once rejected for a role because the director felt she was overweight when she was only 56kgs.
Surveen's first claim to limelight happened with Kahin To Hoga (2003 to 2007). She followed it up with shows like Kasautii Zindagi Kay and Kaajjal. Being a TV actress first, her transition to Bollywood did not come easy as she was often told that she was 'over exposed because of television.' To avoid rejection, for some time, Surveen tried to hide it from producers and tell them she did TV only for a year. She later realised that it should be going to be easier for a team to get someone who already knows how to do their lines!
Surveen debuted in Bollywood with 2011 film Hum Tum Shabana but her breakthrough role was in Hate Story 2. Surveen has also featured in critically-acclaimed films like Uglyand Parched and has simultaneously made a few regional films in this duration.
