Rashami Desai ended in the fourth position in Bigg Boss 13. Even after constant fights with co-star turned co-contestant ,Sidharth Shukla and a breach of trust from boyfriend Arhaan Khan, the popular TV actress has come out stronger and happier. All set for taking up new projects Rashmi recently opened up about her casting couch experiences early in career.
In this post #MeToo era, it is brave of so many actresses to come forth with their stories. Rashami joins the league. Talking to Pinkvilla Rashami shared how she almost fell prey to the divisive plans of a casting agent. Naming the person as Suraj, Rashami told the portal that she was advised that if she doesn’t go through casting couch. She won’t get work. “I still remember that I was told if you don’t go through casting couch, you won’t get work. His name is Suraj and I don’t know where he’s now. The first time we met, he asked me about my statistics and I didn’t know what it meant back then. I told him I don’t know and he knew that she’s completely unaware of things. He was the first person who tried taking advantage of me and tried to molest me in some or the other way,”
Talking about what happened that day when she went to meet him for audition, Rashami said, "There were no cameras and he tried his level best to spike my drink and get me unconscious. I kept saying I don’t want to do. Somehow, he wanted to psyche my mind. From there, I managed to come out after two and a half hours and I told my mother everything,”
Rashami has almost lost her interest in working for the entertainment industry when her mom called thatperson at a hotel and slapped him for his deeds.
Rashami has featured in hit TV shows like Uttaran and Dil Se Dil Tak, apart from many regional language movies.
