Telangana’s missing transgender candidate turns up at police station


Transgender candidate M. Chandramukhi, contesting the Telangana assembly elections from a constituency in the city, turned up at a police station late Wednesday night.

Chandramukhi, who is contesting the election from Goshamahal as a candidate of the Bahujan Left Front and was missing since early Tuesday, reached Banjara Hills police station along with her lawyer and some members of the transgender community.

She refused to give a statement to police about her whereabouts, saying she will reveal all the details in court on Thursday.

The Hyderabad High Court had on Wednesday directed the police to produce her in the court on Thursday.

The court passed orders on a habeas corpus petitioned filed by Chandramukhi’s mother Ananthamma.

Earlier, a missing case was registered at the Banjara Hills police station on a complaint by her mother.

Chandramukhi, the only transwoman candidate in Telangana’s assembly elections, went missing early on Tuesday from her house in Jawaharnagar here. According to her supporters, two persons had come to meet her. Later, her mobile phone was switched off. They claimed she had been abducted.

However, after examining CCTV footage, police said on Wednesday that she left the house on her own and was seen walking alone. A police official said she had masked her face to hide her identity.

Police had formed 10 teams to trace the missing candidate. A few teams were also deputed to Anantapur and other districts in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.

Bahujan Left Front leaders and transgender activists have alleged that people who were opposed to a transgender contesting the election were behind her disappearance.

Chandramukhi is contesting from Goshamahal against Bharatiya Janata Party legislator Raja Singh and the Congress party’s Mukesh Goud.

Sreemukhi on Bilingual Flick Chandrika

It is not Chandramukhi but Chandrika, the bi lingual Chandrika is being presented by Sajid Qureshi who made Pustakam Lo Konni Pageelu Missing. “He was looking for a Telugu girl, one girl who was already finalised was Kamna Jetmalani. He saw my work on Saradhi and Prema Ishq Kadal, he narrated the story on the phone. One day he did a trial shoot and uploaded on the youtube and got a good response. He made it in two languages both in Kannada and Telugu. Muni Siddhappa is the director”, reveals Sreemukhi to Telugu360.com.

Ask her if there are any similarities with Chandramukhi she replies, “People think that Chandramukhi is similar to Chandrika but it is totally different, only the genre is a common point. The director made sure that the plot looked novel, and I am sure people will not find any similarities. Kamna Jetmalini comes in the flash back and I play the housewife and her aatma comes into me, Second part too there is a small part as a flash back. We tried to play with colours, like gulal…It is an out and out love story. It is a challenge for me to take up such a role and yes, this is a debut film for me in Kannada. Hundred percent was shot in Bangalore and Mysore, at Lalit Mahal Palace.”

How easy was Kannada?

“It took a lot of physical effort and I had to shout, scream a lot. The language was similar, when I was hosting Adhurs I was witness to seeing the Kannada part being filmed so I could grasp most of it and so it wasn’t difficult. I heard horror films in Benguluru do really well. Lot of people have already started enquiring after the trailers came out. My next film is releasing Dhanalakshmi Talupu Thattidi. This is a comedy thriller and that former is love story and horror.”
