In an interview with Pinkvilla, she said,
“I still remember, when I was told that if you don’t go through the casting couch, you won’t get work. That man’s name was Suraj. And I don’t know where he is now? When we first met, he asked me about my statistics. I didn’t know the meaning at that time. I told him that I don’t know, so she understood that I am completely unaware of that. He was the first person who somehow tried to take advantage of me and molest me.”
As per Rashmi, that guy had invited her for an acting audition, and while drinking, he tried to harass her. She further said,
“One day, he called me for an audition. I was very excited. I arrived, but there was no one there except him. There was no camera. He tried to make me faint by mixing some drugs in my drink. I kept saying that I did not want to do all this. But he wanted to control my mind. After about two and a half hours, I somehow got out of there and came home to tell my mother.”
