Aditi Rao Hydari has been a part of some impactful films within Indian cinema. The actress has recently revealed her experiences of the much-talked about casting couch.

“I did lose work and I cried about it. I didn’t regret it but I cried about it because I felt so upset that this was true and this is how girls are treated. I was like, how dare someone speak to me like that! For about eight months [after the incident] I didn’t get work, but I feel that decision made me stronger in my intention about the kind of work I wanted to do,” said Rao Hydari, as reported by Hindustan Times.

She went on to say that women need to be stronger when facing upto it, “It’s about power play in the industry, and you should nip it in the bud. What is the fear? That you won’t get work? If you are talented, the right people will call you”.
