Actor Rashami Desai has spoken out against the discrimination that happens with the actors working in television shows. The actor talked about the resistance from the fashion world in styling or dressing up the TV stars. Rashami said that there’s an evident shackle for TV stars that needs to be broken because that’s the basis for discrimination. The Bigg Boss 13 contestant said that TV actors get to hear from many designers that they won’t be able to offer them their designs because they belong to the small screen. The actor also said that even the popular stars are not cast in other projects because filmmakers say that it’s difficult for them to break the image these stars have created among the audience already.

Rashami talked to Spotboye and mentioned, “Yes we are told ‘TV me bahot dikh gaye ho, aapka exposure bohot ho gaya hai. Accha, TV actress hai, hum unko designer kapde nahi denge, ya shayad inko placement is hisaab se honi chahiye’ (You have been exposed a lot on TV. Oh, she’s a TV actor, we can’t give her designer clothes. They should be placed in a certain way). So there’s a big struggle for television actors who have achieved something because coming from nowhere and becoming something and trying to achieve your dreams is definitely not easy.” Also Read - Hina Khan Tells You Exactly Why Nepotism is an Issue That Needs to be Addressed Again And Again
