Shocking but true and yet another confirmation to the existence of casting couch by the leading lady of Punjabi film industry Surveen Chawla, didn't come as an out-of-the-blue confession but a thing that we know but don't want to talk openly about.
The 32-year-old actress entered the world of daily soaps in early 2000 with shows like Kahin Toh Hoga and Kasauti Zindagi Ki and her recent one was '24' opposite Anil Kapoor. She has done Punjabi films like Disco Singh, Singh v/s Kaur, Hero Naam Yaad Rakhi, Dharti and many more.
The Hate Story 2 actress confessed that after doing a bold role in her Bollywood debut movie, she was tagged and was even offered the most revealing roles.
"I don’t know if my screen image makes me look like an easy target. But I have to say, I was offered a whole lot of supposedly bold and sexy roles after I did Hate Story 2. This industry slots and tags you. I guess it was the reputation of the franchise. I did nothing hot or sleazy in the film. There was a lot of sex in the first and the third part. But mine was a revenge story. And yet, after Hate Story I was flooded with cheesy, salacious roles. I was labelled bold. I could have given in to the temptation of doing these roles. It was money that I urgently needed to live in Mumbai," said Surveen.

"This happened in Tamil cinema where I had already auditioned and bagged an important role. This was a very big film and a very important director, who couldn’t speak Hindi. So can you believe the man’s audacity! The director had his friend call and make the offer for me to sleep with the director. The friend told me it would only be until the film was made. I said, thanks but no thanks."
