 Casting couch and many other women-related issues are so common in the film industry that every other actress faces it at once. Now Elli AvrRam has spoken up about the same while interacting to an entertainment portal.

 

She said “I had gone for a few meetings. I met these two directors who especially shaked my hand and scratched it with one of the fingers. After that one meeting, I asked my friend about it. He was shocked and said, "Oh, no did he do that? Do you know what that means?' I didn't know and he told me that he wanted to sleep with me."

 

“I was told I needed to lose weight. They said I'm short and I was told about my forehead and my teeth. One girl who was connected to Bollywood told me, 'Oh, but sweetheart you can never become an actress because you're too short. I choose not to listen to that. Within two months of me being in India, I felt I don't have it. Some felt I looked old like an aunty because of my long hair" she added further.

 

Speaking about her films she said, “It's been tough. I remember this very big movie where they wanted to have me and I was so excited to have that movie. Suddenly, the actor had problem and that's why the producer took a call and replaced me. That would have been it but it's been hard times."
