The recent controversy over casting couch in the Indian film industry hit the national headlines few days back. Now, Director Shivram Yadav's film Madhubala, portrays this sensitive and much publicized topic. The film stars newcomers, model turned actress Aditi Govitrikar and Sameer Dharamadhikari.

‘Madhubala' is a film, which showcases the lives of everyone who is involved in the entertainment business of Bollywood. But, more than anything else the film focuses on the casting couch.

The movie plans to recreate the scandal of director Madhur Bhandarkar and budding actress Preeti Jain on the celluloid. The director says that such cases are not very uncommon in the industry as they happen with the mutual consent of both parties.

Sameer Dharamadhikari, who made his debut in Bhandarkar's Satta, plays the role of a director in ‘Madhubala'. On the sets of Madhubala, the scene where Sameer, is alleged to have an affair with an aspiring actress, by his wife, played by Aditi Govitrikar was shot.

"Well, the story is based on casting couch; on how a director and a newcomer, or a heroine, who wants to join films. And, what happens between them, and what can happen. It can have two perspectives. It is basically based on that," said, actress Aditi Govitrikar.

The filmmaker has made an attempt to portray the lives of director-producer as well as the wannabe stars, in the industry. The story line revolves around the much-hyped phenomenon of casting-couch, which has always existed in the industry, right from its inception.

"I'm playing a director in the film. He is a national award winner, director - a very intelligent guy. He knows his job pretty well," said Sameer Dharamadhikari, lead actor in the film.

"People have many misconceptions regarding casting couch in our industry. To remove those misconceptions and to show what are the other reasons behind the casting couch, I thought, this is the right time to make such a film and I made it," Shivram Yadav, film's Director said.

The movie seems to have generated the much-desired publicity with the recent expose operations carried by a prominent television news channel on casting couch. But what response it gets at the box office would be known only after it hits the screens across the country.
