This is sad!

Many celebrities have often opened up about the dark side of the industry. From casting couch to inappropriate behaviour on sets, there have been many instances that reveal the uncomfortable truths about this world. Speaking about the same, actress Mona Singh arrived on Hauterrfly’s The Male Feminist and talked about her personal experiences. Singh in conversation with host– Siddhaarth Aalambayan, talked about her initial days in the industry and some instances that scared her.

She mentioned–” During the initial days of my career, I came to Mumbai for a meeting and those men were very weird. There were multiple men taking the audition for a film and I was sitting alone. I was naive, a girl from a small town, who didn’t know anybody and was trying to do things on my own and my parents told me it was not gonna be easy. Those men were not talking to me nicely or looking at me nicely.” She added how most of them were looking inappropriately at her while having a conversation. This indeed made her uncomfortable and I didn’t know how to handle that situation.
