Surveen Chawla once victim of casting couch

Mumbai: Dancer turned movie actress Surveen Chawla admits that she became victim of casting couch once in southern film industry but not in Bollywood.

This casting couch is such a topic that several celebrities shy away from speaking about in public but Surveen speaks openly.

Surveen told media persons, “I feel very great that I have not encountered this (casting couch) here (Bollywood). I have faced this (casting couch) down south and of course I refused to give into that…Honestly I can only comment on it if I had encountered it in Bollywood. I don’t know if I should call it sheer luck.”

The actress said that she never “desperate about work”, bus she is always “desiring about work.”

She added, “But (I am) not desperate to give in to anything to barter myself in exchange of work…I am too much in love with my dignity and self respect. Work will bring me work and that’s my motto.”
