29-year-old Ashish said, “There are some producers in the film industry who constantly trouble you by sending a message. I found myself in a dilemma that if I give the answer to their message, and if no answer is given then They see me as if I have read their message. Even if I tried to change the subject, they would roam back to the same question. ”
