Mumbai: As much as the Indian film industry denies it, the infamous casting couch is very much prevalent in Bollywood.
The latest star to confirm this is none other Bollywood’s new poster boy, Ranveer Singh. The ‘Band Baaja Baarat’ star spoke his heart out in the latest episode of ‘Simi Selects: India’s Most Desirable’.
The actor revealed how the casting couch is not just restricted to women but also men. He spoke about his struggling days and said, “It’s not just restricted to women.”
The actor has also in the past spoken about industry’s well kept secret. Earlier this year at FICCI conference, the actor had admitted that he was approached by certain people for sexual favours in return of film roles. Ranveer has also categorically mentioned that big banners do not indulge in such sleazy acts.
Simi also questioned him about his much speculated relationship with co-star and ‘good friend’ Anushka Sharma. Rumours have it that the two have been dating ever since they met on the sets of ‘Band Baaja Baarat’.
Ranveer was at his diplomatic best and said, “We are very professional with each other. We hang out with common friends and go out for movies. We go out to places to eat and what not but we`re not dating,"
Ranveer said that Anushka deserved a much better guy than him. “She is the most amazing amalgamation of beauty, talent and intelligence. I`m awestruck by her. I`m not good enough to be her boyfriend (laughs)", said Ranveer.
