Mita Vashisht's revelation on casting couch

In a conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Mita Vashisht spoke openly about casting couch. She said, “There was a director from the South industry. He met me in Chennai and offered me the lead role in a film. I was very happy. However, that director had worked with actresses like Smita Patil. He put a condition while giving me the role.”

The director made a cheap demand from Mita Vashisht

Mita Vashisht further said, 'The director had put a condition that I stay with him for two months. Whereas he was an award winning director. When I heard his condition, I immediately said what nonsense is this. Keep your role with you and get out of here. I did not even think once that the lead role is slipping out of my hands.' The actress further said that at that time she did not know English well. So she thought that the director was asking her to stay in Chennai for two months to correct it. But later he himself said that it is not so, and said 'You have to stay with me.' On hearing this, the actress left the role.
