New Delhi: Actress Sneha Jain, who is seen as a jewel in the popular television show ‘Nibhana Saathiya 2’, is a famous actress of the industry. But do you know that when Sneha started looking for work in the South film industry, she had to face a very bad experience. Now Sneha has revealed this scary experience of casting couch while remembering some painful incidents of the past.
Had to do this work with the director
According to the news published in the English website of Zee News, in an interview given to ETimes.com, Sneha has talked about this while disclosing this incident. When asked about her experience of facing any casting couch in the industry, Sneha Jain revealed, “As far as casting couch is concerned, I can’t remember which year it was. But I think it is around my graduation time. Once when I got a call from the casting director of South, he offered me a film.
It was decided to meet in Hyderabad.
Sneha Jain further says, ‘The film was the story of college going students. He told me that there will be three couples and they all have equally important roles. I sent him my profile and pictures and the next day I got a call from him that I would have to go to Hyderabad to meet the director and producer. I agreed to go there. I asked him to give details, including the story of the film, the details of the banner, producer and director. I told them that I will go with my mother.
Sneha further says, ‘Then he told me that there is a condition that I have to settle with him. I was surprised. She told me that the day I reach Hyderabad, the hotel details will be given to me. I will meet the director and sign the deal. He will give me half the amount. He further told me that I have to spend the whole day with the director and do whatever he says. I was shocked and directly told him that this is wrong and I cannot be a part of a project like this.’
Didn’t even stop shouting
According to Sneha, even after refusing, that person did not give up. Sneha further said, ‘He started telling me that it is not a big deal and everyone does it. I told her that I don’t want to be famous. If I want a project, I want it because of my talent. He called me again a week later and told me that the deal is still open. I shouted at him again and he asked me to stop even after this.
Said this on bold content
Talking about working with bold content on OTT, Sneha quipped, “No, in terms of acting, I don’t mind, if I get some bold offer and it’s really what the show requires, I will I will do this. My family is also very cool, they will not have any problem. I don’t think if I am creating a love scene then something is obscene, I am doing anything wrong. I am an actor and it is my job to stay true to my character. If I am offered a kissing scene, I will do it because at that time I am not Sneha, I am a character.
Sneha Jain was first seen in ‘Krishnadasi’ in 2016. She also acted in a few episodes of ‘Crime Patrol’ and is now seen in ‘Saath Nibhana Saathiya 2’.
