Varalakshmi Sarathkumar is a famous actress who is well-known for her bold and straightforward characteristics.

Recently the actress opened up about her casting couch experiences, and explained the reason for the delay in her career.

Despite coming from a strong cinema background, daughter of actor Sarathkumar and stepdaughter of Radhika, Varalakshmi reveals that she was still approached by some people in the industry who asked her to compromise and sleep with the directors, producers, and heroes to get movie opportunities.

"You must learn to say no. Some actresses agree to such things and then later complain about it," she said.
