In a startling revelation, Ileana told Bombay Times that talking about casting couch can end her film career.
"The fact of the matter is that if an A-list star is accused of something like this, you will require a large number of people to come forward, including A-list actresses and actors, to make a difference... It will take many voices for people to acknowledge that huge stars could have such an ugly side," she told Bombay Times. Actors "are worshipped" in India. "It might sound cowardly, but I do agree that if you speak out about the casting couch, it will end your career," she said in a report published in Bombay times.
