Minissha Lamba recently opened up on moving on in life after her divorce from her husband Ryan Tham. The actress has now spoken about her experiences while working in the film industry. The Bachna Ae Haseeno actress also recalled her casting couch experience. Read on to know how she handled it.
Recalling the time when she had to face the casting couch, Minissha shared that there were times when she was called to discuss work over dinner. However, the actress always used to decline such proposals and insist on having meetings in the office instead. Most of the time she also pretended to not understand the insinuation made under the pretext of having dinner.
Sharing how such propositions were made to her, Minissha in an interview with Siddharth Kannan said, “I think in any industry where there are men, a lot of men are going to try. This industry is not any different. I definitely have faced things like the person not confirming for the film and saying, ‘Why don’t you meet for dinner? Let’s talk.’ And I am like, ‘No, why don’t we meet in the office? I don’t know about dinner but I am definitely free, we can set up a time and meet in the office tomorrow if you want to discuss further.’”
Revealing how she handled such men, the actress said, “I have handled it like that. It has not happened much to me to my face. But whenever it has happened, I have handled it in a way where I have pretended not to understand what you are saying.” She also revealed that many such projects that she was offered to discuss over dinner never took off.
On the work front, the beautiful actress will be next seen in Kutub Minar costarring Karanvir Bohra.
