Shruti Gera makes a shocking claim, says ‘drugging and blackmailing young actors is common in Bollywood’

Former actor Shruti Gera opens up on once getting offer by casting directors in 2018, produced by Kundra, for a web series which offers she rejected.

Former Indian actress Shruti Gera, believes that there is no requirement for audiences to criticise fresh models and actors. In her recent interview, the actress also spoke about rejecting a prominent project offered to her by Raj Kundra’s production house.

The actress said, “I don’t remember exactly which casting director mentioned it to me but at least a few did. One mentioned they could introduce me to Raj Kundra, another said this guy intends to start a production house and he is coming in the web space in a big way. I said no to it immediately. But I am more grateful that I kept myself safe. We all thought that he is some big shot but turns out he is a person who does porn films.”

The ‘Toss: A Flip of Destiny’ actress also added, “Imagine someone like me who has done several hundreds of TV commercials with the biggest brands out there and a casting guy has the audacity to approach someone like me. When the news came out, I felt like someone punched in the stomach that how dare someone think that I would be open to do such a thing,” she adds.

Shruti further elaborated her statement by explaining, “I realised that a lot goes on here in the industry. Young female actors are drugged, their compromising videos are shot and through that people blackmail them and pimp them out. It is very common. Even young male actors face this. They do a lot of things, they honey trap and they make you vulnerable… I have walked out of projects when I realised that the makers had ill intentions. But it is always not that easy. They also put cameras in your room and shoot something and then blackmail you with it and force an actor to do something that they don’t want to.”
