Rashami Desai reveals her shocking experience
While talking to Pinkvilla, Rashami said, “I still remember that I was told if you don’t go through casting couch, you won’t get work. His name is Suraj and I don’t know where he’s now. First time we met, he asked me about my statistics and I didn’t know what it meant back then. I told him I don’t know and he knew that she’s completely unaware of things. He was the first person who tried taking advantage of me and tried to molest me in some or the other way,” she said.
Rashami told that the man tried spiking her drink in order to take advantage. “One day, he called me for an audition and I was all excited. Main pohuch gayi aur waha koi nahi tha except him. There were no cameras and he tried his level best to spike my drink and get me unconscious. I kept saying I don’t want to do. Somehow, he wanted to psyche my mind. From there, I managed to come out after two and a half hours and I told my mother everything. Next day, we went to meet him again and this time, my mother slapped him.”
Rashami was one of the strongest contestants on Bigg Boss 13. She was among the finalists on the show and is known for her roles in shows such as Uttaran and Dil Se Dil Tak.
