maanvi gagroo casting couch

Actress Maanvi Gagroo recently recalled her casting couch experience. The incident took place a year ago when Maanvi was asked by a producer to compromise in return of triple salary. The actress is known for her role in popular web series like ‘TVF Tripling’, ‘Made in Heaven’ and ‘Four More Shots Please!’.


Recalling how even in the post #MeToo era people are still using the term ‘compromise’ in return for a fatter paycheck, Maanvi told Koimoi, “A year ago, I got a call from a random unknown number. They were like ‘we’re doing a web series and we wanted to cast you.’ They told me the budget and I said, ‘nai nai yaar, this is too less and why are we talking about the budget? Tell me the script, only if I’m interested and you are interested in roping me, we can discuss about money, dates and all.’ So he’s like ‘we’re asking people if they are okay with the budget.’ When I said ‘nahi, it’s less’, he tripled the budget just in his next sentence. He said, ‘I can give you this much also, but aapko ‘compro’ (compromise) karna padega.”

Sharing how she blasted the man after hearing the term ‘compro’, the actress further added, “This words ‘compro’, ‘compromise’ I was hearing after 7, 8 years. Suddenly I don’t know what triggered me, I started abusing him. Told him ‘aap phone rakho, how dare you? Mai police ko complaint kar rahi hu’. I was really mad because in this pro imposed #MeToo era, I was baffled at how things like this still happen.”

Well, it is really a shame that some people are still not deterred while asking actors to ‘compromise’.

On the work front, Maanvi has also worked in feature films. She was recently seen in ‘Ujda Chaman’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’. She is currently gearing up for the second season of ‘Four More Shots Please!’
