There is a convenient myth in the entertainment industry about casting couch, and as the myth goes, the woman who is willing to act in the film is supposed to sleep with the big directors and producers to secure her place. Metaphorically, she is considered as an old piece of furniture which must be discarded away after termites start to eat it.
One such incident happened in the tinsel town, and it was even surprising to note that the convict accepted his crimes and all charges that were put on him.
Famous producer, Karim Morani who made Bollywood's Badshah Shah Rukh Khan's dream turn into reality by producing his big banner films. The producer also gave him a chance of playing the role of the superhero in one his dream movies was convicted on the charges of rape a few years back.
The incidence took everyone in the industry by surprise, many might even call it fake, but according to a leading news portal, Karim has been reported admitting his crime.
He had his desires, he had his greeds, he had a woman who was ready to burn the midnight oil. But, then his intentions turned everything upside down.
Karim is reported to have surrendered himself to the Rachakonda police of Hyderabad in Telangana after he was alleged of the rape of a struggling actress who lodged a complaint.
The case was registered on January 18, 2017, and Morani denied his anticipatory bail.
Following charges have been put on him :
Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 417 (cheating), 376 (rape) 342 (wrongful confinement), 506 (criminal intimidation), 493 (cohabitation caused by a man deceitfully inducing a belief of lawful marriage) and other relevant sections.
