"I know and do understand that at times, many boys and girls have to go through bad situations in order to be able to fetch some work," Deccan Chronicle quoted the actress.
Alia Bhatt said that whenever the topic is discussed, the "environment turns negative". "All of a sudden the casting couch discussion has become a burning topic. However, I am of the opinion whenever such topics are discussed the environment turns very negative. People start believing that the industry is bad," the actress said.
Alia agreed to the fact that getting work in the industry is a task and there is "huge struggle" involved to achieve something in the industry. But the problem of casting couch is prevalent not just in India, according to the actress. "Everyone has to face their own battle of struggle in order to be able to get work in this industry. And during their struggle some people could use the strugglers for their benefit. And these exist not only in India but all over the world," the Udta Punjab actress added.
Alia Bhatt is currently shooting for her film Kalank, which will also star Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt. The actress also has Brahmastra and Gully Boy in the pipeline.
