Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon hero Barun Sobti poses for the camera.

The film industry has been associated with the casting couch for years now, and films like Page 3 (2005) have even touched upon the subject. The ugly demon has reared its head in the fast-growing television industry now, where male actors find themselves being asked to 'compromise' more than
women.

Actor Barun Sobti, seen in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, says, "Most strugglers feel that the casting couch is the only way to get work. Even I was asked to compromise for a role once, but I turned it down and today, I am doing well for myself." Barun adds that many people are swayed in a weak moment, only to regret it later. "It is more prevalent among guys right now. Or perhaps it's because stories of guys doing such favours are openly discussed as opposed to incidents involving women."
