Ileana responds on casting couch in the industry

Ileana responds on casting couch in the industry”

Elaborating further, Ileana opined, "It might sound cowardly, but I do agree that if one speaks out about the casting couch, it will end their career".

Last year, the expose on Harvey Weinstein where women from the worldwide film fraternity opened up about being sexually harassed while working with the media mogul gave rise to campaigns like Time's Up and Me Too.

Previously, it was "Fukrey" actress Richa Chadha who talked openly about her casting couch experience.

Campaigns like Time's Up and #MeToo were formed after the revelation of Hollywood's biggest controversy that supports the victims and takes a charge against all the sexual predators. If people want to know the actual life of an actor they should step ahead to look they will be exposed to the ugly side of the actor.

She shared an incident when a budding artiste came to her and asked for career advise after being approached by a prominent South Indian producer. My reply to her was it is a situation that I can't overcome for her.it is her stand that no one can impose on her. It is her decision and that nobody could force it on her.

On Spacey's involvement in the casting couch in Hollywood, Ileana said: "I can't watch Kevin Spacey's show anymore, though I have loved it earlier because he has been accused of harassment".

She added that if a top star is accused of casting couch or any form of sexual harassment at workplace, a large number of leading actresses and actors need to voice their protests. In this country, actors are worshipped so it will take an vast amount of time for people to believe that actor in the industry has such disgusting side. "It disgusts me as a person".

Last year on Christmas, Ileana had posted a picture of her Christmas tree and captioned it as, "My favourite time of the year ♥️ #christmastime #happyholidays #home #love #family..."
