Casting couch is no new to the industry. While many top Bollywood actresses have admitted facing Casting couch, here comes another revelation. Khichdi actress Richa Badra who played the child artist Chakki has opened up about facing Casting Couch post her marriage.


While talking to a leading daily she said "I came across a casting director who said, ‘Keep me happy and I will give you work.' He wanted to meet me at a hotel when I suggested meeting at a coffee shop. That was the end to all my aspirations which I had in the industry. I didn't want to ruin the image which I had built as a child actor."


"I have always been a plump girl. During my growing up years, I was being offered roles where I had to expose or romance on-screen. I didn't want to go against my family and or my will to take up such roles just for fame" she said as she elaborated further.


After quitting acting, the actress took upon the job of an Education Counsellor at a private firm and she even said that people wondered what she was doing there rather than acting.


Apart from Khichdi, Richa was also seen in shows like Baa Bahu Aur Baby and Mrs. Tendulkar.
