Varalakshmi Sarathkumar reveals casting couch experiences

Varalakshmi Sarathkumar in spite of her father being a leading hero in the nineties chose to forge her own way in Tamil cinema and has made a name for herself as a talented actress who does bold and powerful roles. In a recent televised interview, the outspoken actress has revealed that she herself has experienced shocking calls from producers to indulge in casting couch for roles.

Varu has added that coming from a strong family background with her father Sarathkumar's stature as a hero and politician persons had the courage to ask her to sleep with directors, producers and heroes to which she had refused. She has attributed her saying no for the delay in her career taking off but she is glad that now she has completed 25 films and has just signed her 29th.

Varu's advice to women is to say no and walk out rather than indulging in casting couch and then complaining about it. She has said that she does not even judge those who chose to trade sex in return for career growth as that too needs mental strength. Otherwise, the next option is to wait like her and prove their talents when their time comes.
