Acclaimed film choreographer Saroj Khan's shocking statement surfaced wherein she's trying to convey that casting couch is not a big deal. She spoke on the issue when a reporter asked her to comment on actress Sri Reddy, who had recently stripped in protest against the casting couch in the Telugu film industry. Someone or the other always tries to take an advantage of a girl. With controversial comments, she defended the casting couch situation in the industry, saying that women can avoid assault if they wish too. But, not doing anything about it simply means that you are giving in to your oppressors and also giving them the confidence to do this to more people.

"It is not just in the film industry".

Another school district cancels classes ahead of planned teacher walkout
Across the state, students are missing out on class time and parents are scrambling to fill the gaps left by strikes and walkouts. Unlike other states, lawmakers here can't raise taxes to send more money to schools or approve teacher raises on their own.

As video of her comments went viral, inviting sharp criticism, she apologised, but said the remarks should be seen in context of the question asked. If she doesn't want to fall in trap, she wouldn't. I also know women who have stood up against it and said No.

Every time there is a debate on the casting couch, a can of worms opens.

The 69-year-old was quoted saying: "This is going on from "Baba Adam's times", it is not new. It's not as if you are raped and abandoned". When you are an artist, why will you sell yourself? Those who desperately want success or promotion or are looking for that golden chance most probably would be ready to compromise, whether in films, media or even in corporate offices.

Rather than showing support or solidarity, Saroj Khan's distasteful statements have told thousands of young girls that the casting couch is the only route to dreams coming true. One can only wonder what Saroj Khan was smoking before making the statement. She justified the exchange of sexual flavors at work in the film industry describing it age-old and asking why the entertainment industry alone should be targeted. "It's like our mother-father", she said. Our #EntertaimentIndustry, like all other industries respects women.
