She says no, although if she were more ambitious, the year-old belly dancer and aspiring actress says, she would have to say yes. For newcomers like her, with no surefire connections, the route to stardom has long involved submitting to expectations of sex.

In another Bollywood film this year, Anaarkali of Aarah , inspired by a true story, a dancing girl who sings innuendo-laden songs at functions in a small town called Aarah takes on a powerful official who molests her in public. A fresh crop of Hindi films — or Bollywood, as the industry is popularly known — are telling stories of ordinary women seeking sexual and financial freedom. Triggering the change in Bollywood's narrative was the brutal gang rape of a year-old woman on a bus in New Delhi in , which led to massive protests across the country and put a spotlight on women's safety in India. Bollywood films, often characterized by their song and dance sequences and male-dominated story lines, are influential in India and beyond, and objectification of women and their use in titillating songs is often blamed for stoking sexual crime in the country.

The films that tell women's stories, though still perceived as commercially unviable, have done well at the box office. Alankrita Shrivastava, director of Lipstick Under My Burqa , said viewers were drawn to her film as "an honest story about them" and that the film remains the most watched since Amazon Prime's launch in India last December.

But before taking you to the confessions, let me first highlight what does 'Casting Couch' truly means. It is an understatement for the approach in which actors both men and women are encouraged to lend sexual favors in negotiation for a role or a big break.

Your first time probably wasn't what a lifetime of teen movies cracked it up to be. It might have been awkward, painful, or funny — not exactly the romantic, beautiful moment you were hoping for. Here are their stories. I was 14 years old and dating an year-old boy, which now I look back and think it's disgusting, but then I thought I was really cool
