business cash has made it a point to update its viewers with fresh unbiased news. Well, in a conversation with business cash, Krissann Barretto, who acted in shows like Sasural Simar Ka and Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan, shared how she was about to get cheated by a casting director.
“The company operates by the name of Omnicom Media Group and Preeti Singh is the first point of contact. So she contacted me for the shoot,” she said.
“After sharing a bunch of clicks as I was asked to, Preeti Singh asked to contact the project head, Harsh Sharma, who will be handling the Mumbai branch of Omnicom Media Group and will be the sole person behind the selection of the final eight girls. Later I received a message asking me to share ‘100% Sexy, Bold, Hot, Seductive and Attractive clicks for the shoot,” added Krissann.
The actress was continuously asked by Preeti Singh to contact and convince Harsh Sharma to finalise her for the shoot to which Krissann got suspicious and lashed out at Preeti.
She further added, “I am not a struggler and don’t need such ways to get work but there are girls who have just entered or are thinking of entering the industry. Fake people like Preeti Singh and Harsh Sharma through their cheap tricks are degrading the chance of any genuine talent from entering into the industry as for newcomers it becomes difficult to differentiate between fake and real casting directors.”
“I am not the first one they contacted, my friend Dimple also got the same texts and the same offer,” she added.
Krissann also shared a post on Instagram asking her well wishers to stay alert.
business cash requests each one out there to stay safe and not to trust anyone blindly.
