Saroj Khan backs casting couch, says film industry 'at least' gives jobs

Veteran choreographer Saroj Khan has defended the casting couch culture, saying the Indian film industry "at least" provided jobs and did not abandon women after raping them. In comments that come in the wake of the #MeToo campaign which calls out sexual offenders, Khan put the onus on the woman and said the casting couch was not a new phenomenon with "anyone and everyone", including people in the government, indulging in it.
