Actress Isha Koppikar has worked in South films as well as Bollywood. She has also worked in many music videos. Isha Koppikar was last seen in the Tamil film Aylan. Before this, she has appeared in films like ‘Fiza’, ‘Pyaar, Ishq Aur Mohabbat’, ‘Hello Darling’ and ‘Salaam-e-Ishq’. Recently, Isha revealed that she had to face the casting couch at the age of 18. She told how the A-list actor invited her to meet alone.

Isha Koppikar has revealed this secret in an interview to Siddharth Kannan. ‘You have heard about #MeToo. In my time, many actresses left the industry.’ Some gave up. But, there are some who are still in the industry. She said, “I am one of those who did not give up.”

Isha Koppikar further said, I faced casting couch at the age of 18. A big actor contacted me through his secretary for casting couch. I was 18 years old. The actor told me, to get work I have to befriend actors. I am very sociable. But, what is friendship? He said that I did not understand this.

Actress Isha Koppikar said that she was once asked by an A-list actor to meet him alone. I was 23 years old at that time. The actor sent his driver to bring me. Apart from this, he asked me not to talk about this anywhere. This was because at that time there were strong rumors of his relationship with other actresses. She said, “There are already controversies about him.” But, I refused him saying that I cannot come alone.

Secretaries of actors and directors would touch her inappropriately. They would come and not only touch her inappropriately but also shake hands. Isha also said that you have to be very friendly with the hero and touch him in an indecent manner.
