YouTuber, model and actress Shazia Naz Khan has revealed that some time ago, a male actor suggested that she meet the producer in private to get a job in a film.

Shazia Naz Khan has acted in several dramas and promoted brands in many fashion shows besides vlogs on YouTube.

Recently, she participated in the YouTube channel 'Momna Mixed Plate', where she spoke openly about the differences between the global and domestic showbiz industry and the practice of 'casting couch,' i.e. sex for work.

Shazia Naz Khan said that Pakistan's drama industry is constantly producing content, but the film industry is lagging, and there are many reasons for this.

According to her, the showbiz industry of other countries, including the UKplaysng an important role in the country's economy, earning billions of rupees and providing employment to hundreds of people. Still, people in the Pakistani industry do not think so.

In the program, she also spoke openly about the practice of 'casting couch,' i.e. sex, in exchange for work in the Pakistani industry. She said this practice exists in almost all industries of every country.

The actress admitted that there is a 'casting couch in the Pakistani showbiz and fashion industry, but it depends on each person's likes or dislikes on how they deal with the said issue.

She claimed that the practice of 'casting couch' also exists in the fashion industry, but boys are more targeted than girls, and everyone knows this.

Assume that the people ahead understand that they are people of the second opinion. According to her, everyone has preferences regarding dealing with or accepting practices like 'casting couch. Some prefer shortcuts over hard work and self-respect, but some do not accept such practices and behaviour.

For example, the actress said that just as she rejected the 'casting couch' cues, so can others.

Shazia Naz Khan told a story that some time ago, a male actor offered her to work in a film with him and suggested that she meet the film producer in private.

According to her, the actor told her he wanted to cast her, but the producers would take the final decision, so they would have to meet him privately.

The actress said that she asked the actor who made such a proposal to share the film's script with her, and if he liked it, she would meet with the entire team, and if not, she would come up with something in some other way. 

According to Shazia Naz Khan, the male actor who proposed to her to meet the producer in private had a different way of speaking, giving signals of 'casting couch, so she acted sensibly and eliminated such signals. 

She said other women and individuals could also end the practice of 'casting couch.

Although the actress revealed that a male co-star suggested dating the producer, she did not name the actor or the producer.
