Actress Varalakshmi Sarathkumar who is known among Tamil audience for appearing in films like Podaa Podee, Sarkar has opened on casting couch. The actress who is known for her outspoken attitude, grabbed headlines in previous occasions. In a recent interaction with News18 Tamilnadu , the actress said that she herself faced casting couch in her acting career.
When she was questioned by the anchor about the problems faced by actresses in Tamil cinema, Varalakshmi said that she faced all these problems in her career and she learnt to say “no”. “It is a choice they are making. I have faced all these stories but I have learnt to say “no”. Knowing that I am a daughter of Sarathkumar, it is happening. I have heard recorded phone calls in which they will say that I won’t cooperate with their requirements” said Varalakshmi in the interaction.
“They said that a heroine should sleep with Hero and producer. I don’t want an opportunity like that. I have learnt to say “no”. Yes I accept that it got delayed for me to grow in my career. Lot of people didn’t accept me to act in their films just because I was too correct. But That’s fine. Now I have completed 25 films. I worked with 25 best producers and with 25 best directors. I am signing my 29th film next. So I am happy” said Varalakshmi Sarathkumar.
“Many are accepting the offer and complaining about it later. You don’t have to bring the person’s name out. But say “no” and walk out. That is my point. No point in complaining about it after doing what they required from you.” she added. Watch the video below :
