Sai Tamhankar is not a new name to the industry. The actress who is one of the leading actresses in the Marathi film industry has forayed in Bollywood too and now with Love Sonia, she has conquered International heights.

Well, when it comes to the film industry, casting couch is one thing which cannot be missed. The actress too faced casting couch and has now opened up about the same.

A leading daily quoted her saying as "There was a shady phone call once. A random person called and said, "I have a film and all that but there is something. You'll have to sleep with the director and the producer. Generally, you have to sleep with the hero as well but since it is you, I am saying producer and director," and I said, "Why don't you send your mom." He went silent for 10 seconds. I told him that now you understand that you are not supposed to call me ever again and post that I hung up. That phone call never happened ever again. You should voice out everything you feel that is not right."

Along with this the actress also talked candidly about the pay parity in the industry. "I really think that women should be paid equally to the male co-stars. I have always been the person who has said, "Mujhe itna do", instead of saying, "usko itna mil raha hai toh mujhe itna do!" Things are slowly changing but the hierarchy still remains the same and I am not a big fan of it."

Sai, let us tell you that it takes immense courage to speak out such things. We can truly boast that we have such inspirations like you and many other women whom we can look upon.
