I have not been subject to anything which can be remotely said as casting couch:Padmapriya
Actress Padmapriya is one of the few artistes in Malayalam who does not shy away from bold characters or taking daring steps in her career.
She is also known to speak openly about her experiences and opinions, and for the past few weeks, many comments on casting couch and treatment towards women, attributed to the State Award winner were found on media platforms. Padmapriya now gives a clarification about the comments circulating in her name and says that she has not been subject to anything which can be remotely said as casting couch, all these years.
“The state of Kerala and Malayalam film industry has been like a home to me ever since I started my career as an actress. The audience, the government, my colleagues in the industry and the media all have accepted and acknowledged me. I am forever grateful to the industry and the state for what I am today,” says Padmapriya, who says that offers have come her way solely because of her ability as
an actor and the professional respect derived from her colleagues in the industry.
