Tisca Chopra…Man identified only as ‘Reptile’.

Tisca Chopra has revealed a casting couch incident that went wrong for the film man who was to up to some mischief when she was offered a film role. In a story-telling session of Kommune India, the Taare Zameen Par actress shared her nightmarish but funny experience with an influential Bollywood director when she was a novice in the industry.

She had made her debut but had no other offers at that time. So when a famous director approached her she grabbed the opportunity not knowing that working with him would mean agreeing to be his “bed squeeze”. Even when her friends told her about the past escapades of the man she had not believed them because the offer was too good to miss and she did not find anything strange with film maker when she met him for the first time.
