Actor Saba Bukhari took to social media revealing her casting couch encounters in the Pakistani show biz industry.
The casting couch refers to a mentality in which directors and filmmakers take undue advantage and favor from film actors or actresses especially from the newcomers.
It’s a shameful revelation that such mentality also prevails in Pakistan as well that brings bad name to the entertainment industry.
Actor Saba Bukhari who currently stars in the drama serial Dil Na Umeed Toh Nahi, in her Instagram post shared a brief account without naming a specific person.
“He said that: Tum may itna confidence toh hai nahi k tum is media may agay ja sako (You don’t have enough confidence to go forward in the media industry),” she wrote.
Bukhari went on to add, “He said that: Masla yay hai tum good girl ho aur iss field may good girl nahi chalti (The problem is that you are a good girl and good girls don’t survive in this field).”
“He said that: Aisa kaisay ho sakta kisi nay tum par attempt na kia ho (How is this possible that no one ever made a move on you). He said that: Hum tumhay kaam q dain or paisay bhe dain jab k yaha larkian kam k liye sonay ko tayar hain (Why should we give you work and money when girls are ready to sleep for work), Saba continued.
“All these lines, words from different men’s (person’s) (director’s) broke me inside [and shattered] my dreams,” the actress concluded.
