Why does Sudhir Mishra hire only female casting directors?

The Inkaar director keeps a safe distance from the whole casting process so that he doesn’t land up in some baseless controversy

“Many filmmakers today are petrified of being accused of sexual harassment especially during auditions. I have been conducting auditions since 1987. The process broadens your search. But I use only female casting directors. And I don’t meet anyone new. I might make the casting director do 10 auditions. But I will not meet the actors because things can be misunderstood.”
