Another actor became the victim of a fake casting call but this time the oretend-agent crossed all his limits and got downright nasty. Actor Namish Taneja who was last seen on Colors' popular show Vidya received a casting call for the upcoming season of Ekta Kapoor's supernatural their, Naagin. However the actor in no time learnt that things seem a bit fishy. Not feeling comfortable, he decided to excuse himself from the conversation. But what happened next was extremely shocking as the caller started abusing him, and even went on to suggest that he should 'commit suicide'. Read on to know the exact conversation between Manish and the fake agent.
Namish in an exclusive conversation with SpotboyE.com said, "I was getting WhatsApp messages, SMS and calls from this number, when I messaged her what exactly she (I assumed she was a girl after I saw her display picture on Whatsapp) wanted, she told me that she is casting for Balaji Telefilms and wanted to cast me for Naagin 5, I requested her to send the details. Though she failed to provide the details in a professional way, still I gave her the benefit of the doubt, but while chatting I realised something is corny. Earlier also I had received calls from Balaji, and they are utter professionals and this girl (God knows whether she is a girl or a boy) was a bit rude and weird. Later, when I stopped replying, she started using bad words and asked me to commit suicide. I wonder, what kind of people are these? And what do they get from doing such things? What will these fake casting/creative directors get after chatting with the actors?"
He also adds, "Everybody is fighting a battle, and especially during these tough times we should be kind to others. How can you tell someone to commit suicide? Maybe the other person is facing personal or professional problems or is in depression, God forbid, what if it instigates the suicidal feelings in them. I feel sad for these kinds of people, who say such things without even thinking. They are mentally sick, God bless them."
Namish has been part of many TV shows including Swaragini, Ikyawan, Main Maike Chali Jaaungi Tum Dekhte Rahiyo and Vidya.
