TV actor Karan Tacker who rose to fame with Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai, has recently opened up on his initial days in the industry and how he faced people who asked him for sexual favours in exchange of work. In an interview to a leading daily, Karan bare it all about casting couch and also revealed a shocking detail about Ranveer Singh’s revelation as well.
Karan Tacker said that the same man who had approached Ranveer Singh for sexual favours had asked him for the same. Recalling the incident, he said, “I saw this interview of Ranveer, and realised that it was the same guy; a casting director/coordinator agent who said, ‘I’ll ask you a question, whether you will work hard or smart’. Funny part is that he’s still a part of the industry, still casting, still doing things.”
Back in 2015, in an interview Ranveer Singh opened about casting couch and how a high profile director invited him to his house in Mumbai. He advised Ranveer to ‘take and touch’ if he wanted to make a cut in the showbiz industry.
Ranveer also revealed, “Later I got to know what he was interested in. When I said ‘no’, he was heartbroken like a jilted lover.”
Karan Tacker said that even to this day, he faces such people in the industry. He said, “It depends on which way you want to go. I suggest people do the right thing. This period makes you understand the industry better and gives you a good story when people ask how hard it was for you!”
On the work front, reports are saying that Karan Tacker has been signed in for Student of the Year 2.
