Filmmaker Pooja Bhatt has set the record straight for celebrity agents who have been going "against protocol" to get a place for their clients in her movies.
"To most well meaning agents out there - surpassing me and contacting my father (Mahesh Bhatt) or the directors I hire is not going to get your actor the role," Pooja, who produces films under her banner Fisheye Network, posted on her Twitter page.
Visibly upset by an incident, she added: "When I have said 'no' it means 'no'. Attempting to chat up the hapless director won't quite help. It's not in order and against protocol.
"As for the casting couch? Fisheye Network operates like Disney! The only person you can flirt with to get the part is probably 'Goofy'!"
