On a day when businessman Raj Kundra, who stands accused in a p*rnography case, was despatched to 14-day judicial custody by a Mumbai court docket, former Bigg Boss contestant Sofia Hayat mentioned on Tuesday that it isn’t unusual for Bollywood aspirants to be tricked into taking pictures for p*rnographic movies by unscrupulous businessmen.
“A casting agent once said to me that there was an intimate scene and I have to show the director how well I can act for it,” recalled Hayat, who had entered Bigg Boss 7 as a wild card entry.
“I knew this was a trick because professionals would never ask any artiste to perform such a scene. I have done two love scenes in my career, and although I am not inhibited about such scenes, it was a closed set and nobody had asked me to perform the scenes before the shoot,” Sofia Hayat mentioned.
Bollywood aspirants, Sofia Hayat mentioned, ought to watch out for such propositions. She added that p*rnography desensitised folks from love and spoke in favour of it being handled by the courts on a par with rape.
“It switches people off love and only allows lust. Anyone selling p*rn is an enemy to the energy of love,” Hayat mentioned.
Some of her skilled work, she added, was screen-recorded and uploaded to apps just like the one that’s being investigated for Raj Kundra’s alleged hyperlinks with it. “P*rnography is a violation of the rights of a woman and courts must treat it like rape,” Sofia Hayat mentioned.
She additionally identified that various businessmen took benefit of younger girls within the movie business. Their solely motivation is cash — and what they did to girls was the equal of rape, she mentioned.
