Most of the Bollywood celebrities have been keeping mum on veteran choreographer Saroj Khan’s shocking defence of casting couch in the film industry. On Wednesday, when Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker, and Kareena Kapoor were asked about their take on the controversy, they initially reacted how Ranbir did in the similar situation on Tuesday. Their first reaction was to laugh than to keep tossing the question to each other in an attempt to dodge it. Eventually, Swara said that since that since they were promoting their upcoming movie ‘Veere Di Wedding’, they should just stick to the question related to the movie.

“The question has no relation to ‘Veere Di Wedding’, we will talk about all of this somewhere else,”said Swara.

She was then joined by Sonam Kapoor who said that she promises to answer the question but on Twitter.

Sonam said,

“Every question which is not related to the film, all of us, I, Swara, we will answer this on a one-on-one basis,” “On Twitter,” Swara added to Sonam’s sentence.

The Veere Di Wedding team was confronted with a question while they were attending a trailer launch event for their upcoming movie. Earlier on Tuesday, when the casting couch question was asked to top directors Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor, they laughed it off.

Veteran Bollywood choreographer Saroj Khan triggered a massive controversy after she defended casting couch in the film industry with a bizarre justification. When she was questioned about her views on casting couch, she gave an absurd justification and said that at least it provides a livelihood.

The veteran choreographer also asked a bizarre question, justifying her casting couch logic that why film fraternity is being targeted when netas do it too. Her response caught all the attention, while such words were least of people's expectation and not from a veteran of the filmy business. When asked for their opinion on what Khan had to say and it can be justified, many continued to stay mum, while others resorted to politically correct statements.
