Music composer duo Sachin-Jigar say the casting couch exists everywhere, but hope people come “off their dirty ideas” and make way for true talent. Sachin-Jigar was speaking at the second season of “Talking Music” on Saavn, a music and audio streaming service.
On the existence of the casting couch, Jigar said: “I would say it is everywhere. It is there, of course, nobody wants it to be there, but it has been there and it still exists, I feel. It is something I will strongly oppose and do not believe in, but at the same time I want people to know that it is not only in Bollywood it is just everywhere and it’s absolutely disgusting.”
From a creator’s point of view, “it is a total no”, he said.
