MEN ALSO GO THROUGH CASTING COUCH SAYS PRIYANKA CHOPRA

The biggest star of the Indian entertainment Industry Priyanka Chopra recently spoke out on men facing Casting couch in the film industry. According to a leading news agency, Priyanka paid a visit to the sets of India's Next Superstars, a reality TV show where she said: "Men also go through casting couch". The reality show is judged by Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty. Priyanka Chopra is one of the female Indian celebrities that is known to be outspoken. The bold and beautiful actress in the recently held Penguin Annual Lecture spoke extensively on several issues faced by women in the entertainment industry. Speaking on the topic "Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Chasing a Dream", the star actress expressed her pride and joy as a successful woman who is on the Forbes' list of only men. Despite her joy, she spoke on the pay disparity between men and women. In a statement, Priyanka said; "There are many people who talk about the kind of numbers apparently I get for certain minutes of my time. But has anyone ever asked the boys about the zeroes on their cheques? I mean they get a ridiculous amount of zeroes..."

The actress believes the act to be an abuse of power. She further said, "I was removed last-minute because I am not someone who caters to the whims and fancies of powerful men. I'm very feisty so people get scared of me. So I was treated a different way because I demanded it."  The actress has set a pace and standard for herself that is worth emulating. [caption id="attachment_7609" align="alignnone" width="980"]priyanka chopra Priyanka Chopra[/caption] Still speaking, she said "I didn't settle because I had the strength of my parents standing behind me. (Yet) there are many women who don't have the support of their family, friends, colleagues, and peers, who have to do it alone. It is a very difficult journey." To have a woman of influence stand up to certain social issues is worth commendable. As the Baywatch actress attains great heights of success in her career, she has managed to keep her personal life concealed. In a recent statement, Priyanka must have cracked a joke on planning to have almost a dozen children. She said; "My mother has told me to marry a man who can appreciate the hard work I have done until now. Definitely, I want to get married and have a cricket team of children but finding a suitable match for seems to be a difficult task."
