Casting couch is an issue that has gripped the film industry after actress Sri Reddy made some shocking revelations about many industry biggies. Recently Samantha Akkineni expressed her views about this issue.

She opined that casting couch is not restricted to one field and there will be people with bad virtues everywhere, but not everyone is like that. “I have worked in several films both in Telugu and Tamil industry in the 8 years of my career and there are a lot of good things about it and I will continue working even after I have kids” she stated.

She recalled that her debut ‘Ye Maya Chesave’ was a hit and hence she didn’t have to struggle much and hence she was never aware of such issues in her career. “But it’s a good thing that the government has set up a special cell to look into sexual harassment at work place” she said.

Samantha who is riding high on the success of ‘Rangasthalam’ and is showing no signs of slowing as her films ‘Mahanati’ in telugu and ‘Irumbu thirai’ opposite Vishal are all set to hit the screens.
