Sri Reddy targets hero Nani again

0

Controversial actress Sri Reddy is not new to courting the controversies. Many analysts say she uses expletives to hit the headlines. After a long gap, she has given another video interview and has repeated the same cassette, same allegations, same statements that she has made two years ago. Nothing new but she has added more masala in her speech.

This time she has liberally used Telugu boothulu like ‘L***K**’, ‘De****’ against a couple of Telugu stars. In particular, she has targeted Natural star Nani as she alleges that he is using his clout in the industry to spoil her chances. She has not proved anything against Nani even though she made similar accusations in the past.

But Tollywood celebrities have stopped taking her allegations seriously. They have understood her tactics and are paying no attention. She praises anybody who gives her even a minor role.

Sri Reddy trolled for wrong tweet for Jagan

0

Sri Reddy of half naked protest fame had a bitter taste of her own medicine. Her tweet misfired when she referred to Jagan’s rival parties in AP as ‘opposition’. She was trolled then with commentators mocking at her lack of enough political knowledge before making such political sensitive comments. One person asked whether Sri Reddy got bribed for referring to TDP as opposition party. It is the YCP that is opposition party in AP and it is Jagan who is opposition leader and not Chandrababu Naidu. Hardcore fans of Jagan seem to be forgetting the hard ground realities sometimes.

The actual tweet of Sri Reddy is that she fired at the TDP leaders for criticising Jagan rather than showing sympathy after the knife attack in Vizag airport. She said that Jagan has been risking his life all these years and he is working hard for the welfare of AP people but the ‘opposition parties’ are targeting the YCP president for no valid reasons. This will not be tolerated and Jagan shall recover fast from the knife wound, she said.

Sri Reddy, who became popular with controversial comments on film celebrities regarding casting couch confirmed that she got chance in Lawrence film. She posted through her social media that she finally got chance Lawrence movie and he even offered her remuneration, which she is donating to cyclone relief. But this move of her is seen as backstabbing of “Me too“ movement at crucial time. She earlier made allegations on Lawrence misbehaving with her. But now she accepted role in his movie. With this, there is a debate started among people that if she is offered a role, she is ready to backstab the “Me too” movement and work with those who offended her.

Her past allegations on Lawrence:

She earlier made allegations on Lawrence and explained her experience in a detailed post- “I got to know Lawrence master through sm of my frds,that day we met in lobby in golkonda hotel, masabtank..he took me to his room..after I entered into the room I saw a guru raghavendra swami photo nd some rudrakshas nd all..I felt wow..after that he started the conversation that he came from a poor family and he like to help to newcomers nd all,I started to trust him..he said he is giving shelter to the many poor children..I was impressed..but slowly slowly he showed his true color..he asked me to show my belly,that nd this..strange part is stand nd tempt ur self in the mirror,do some romantic moves,do romance with the mirror..wats wrong wt him).. after dat he did a ride on .. ..he said immediately ur offer is confirm..but end part is very sad..I continued the friendship for some time,but bellamkonda became a villain in it

It’s celebration time for her now as Lawrence offered a role

But now things changed and she was offered a role in Lawrence’s upcoming movie. She posted in her social media account, “Good news for all of my frds that I met Lawrence garu @his home,he recieved me in a very nice way..saw many of the kids over there,they are really happy wt him..they prayed for me..I gave an audition, he took me into his next film,he promised me and confirmed a good role,got an advance too..i am sharing this amount to srikakulam people who suffered by cyclone#celebrationstime..

While Bollywood actors and directors are vowing not to work with proven offenders..

Recently Aamir Khan, Akshay announced that they will not work with proven offenders. Aamir walked out of ‘Mogul’ Project and Akshay cancelled shooting. 11 women directors released a note that they will not work with proven offenders. While they are taking such bold decisions, Sri Reddy accepting the role for herself with a proven offender (as per her own allegations) show how serious she is with the “Me too” movement. By accepting the role in Lawrence movie, she clearly gave indications that she is ready to work with any of those on whom she made allegations. With this audience now feel, all her allegations might be for the sake of her own personal gains and mileage rather than for a cause.

Overall her decision is seen as backstab to “Me too” movement at crucial juncture.

Sri Reddy’s sensational allegations on Jeevan Reddy and Bellamkonda

0

Sri Reddy, who became popular after her bold protest against casting couch issue, again made some sensational comments. She alleged that TRS leader Jeevan Reddy (not to be confused with Jeevan Reddy of Congress) harassed her and Tollywood producer Bellamkonda Suresh supported all this.

Jeevan Reddy is TRS leader contested in 2014 elections from Armoor assembly constituency. He won with a majority of around 13,000 votes over K R Suresh Reddy, former assembly speaker. He is contesting from same assembly constituency in upcoming elections too. Bellamkonda Suresh is a well known Tollywood producer and he is more popular among Telugu people because of the incident in which Bala Krishna allegedly shot him.

Sri Reddy once occupied majority of screen time in all Telugu news channels. However, she shifted her base to Chennai after TV channels stopped entertaining her following her tongue slip on Pawan Kalyan. Now she gave an interview to a Tamil news channel in which she alleged that TRS leader Jeevan Reddy had harassed her sexually. She alleged, Jeevan reddy was after her and always made phone calls and sent objectionable messages. She further added that he misbehaved with her at Park Hyatt hotel in Hyderabad. She alleged that producer Bellamkonda helped him in all this. She also told that MLA Jeevan Reddy threatened her saying, his party is in power and he can do anything”

We will have to wait and see how TRS MLA and producer Bellamkonda respond on this.

Sri Reddy delivers final punch: Pawan’s murder plot issue

0

Sensational actress Sri Reddy took her sweet revenge by hitting Pawan Kalyan where it hurts most. She advised Jana Sena leader to visit a police station and make a complaint with regard to his recent statement on the murder plot against him.

It may be recalled that Pawan gave a similar advice to Tollywood women junior artistes to make a police complaint giving proofs of casting couch sexual harassment culture in film industry. This led to a showdown at that time as much-publicised counter comments between Sri Reddy and Pawan became a media sensation which hit headlines everywhere.

Now, Pawan has pushed himself into a defensive position by levelling charges of alleged murder plot on him during the coming 2019 election campaign. The ruling TDP leaders are leaving no opportunity unused and raising this issue again and again to keep it alive as long as public show interest in it.

The moment Sri Reddy entered the scene, a Pawan fan immediately countered saying Jana Sena leader had not asked for any protection from the government but he had just spoken about some information he received from his sources. The Twitterati, TDP followers and Pawan watchers are now waiting what more controversial comments that Sri Reddy will come up with.

No doubt, the Sri Reddy Vs Pawan matches never fail to hit headlines much to the delight of Telugu audiences.

Kollywood is handling Sri Reddy in much better way

0

After targeting several celebrities from Telugu film industry and not getting proper response from Telugu media, Sri Reddy moved on and started targeting Tamil film celebrities. so far she has targeted director Murugadoss, Lawrence, director Sundar and actor Srikanth (Roja poolu fame). She made comments in her usual style describing the events as they happened. Tamil film industry he is responding to her in much better way compared to Tollywood.

Initially, director T Rajendar responded to her comments and told Tamil film industry must respond to her comments and solve the issue instead of staying passive to her comments. Later, film people started responding to her and asked her to first prove allegations. Veteran Director Bharathiraja responded on this fiasco and told even if what Sri Reddy saying is true, It all happened with her consent and now she is trying to gain publicity from those incidents which is not correct. Another actor complaint against her in Chennai police commissionerate. There was another complaint on her, in which complainant argued Sri Reddy saying she has spent with several film celebrities for the sake of film chances and as everything happened with her consent, this needs to be treated as prostitution case and Sri Reddy should be arrested for encouraging such things.

Even Tamil media also not encouraging her unlike Telugu media that gave her red carpet welcome. Sri Reddy also apologizing actor Vishal and others on whom she made scathing comments earlier.

Should Nani be grateful to Pawan?

0

Yes, this is the discussion happening not only among film and media circles but also among general audience. It is known news that actress Sri Reddy made some baseless allegations on actor Nani ( baseless because she never showed any evidence) and Nani responded to this with legal notices.

Many Telugu people opine that Telugu TV media is always focused on sensationalism after seeing some of the Telugu channels’ stories on various issues. So as per that impression, it is not wrong if one expects Telugu media to capitalise on the issue of Sri Reddy and Nani. However, to the relief of Telugu audience, most of the media kept silent on this issue and did not run hours long debates with so called self proclaimed intellectuals like it did earlier.

Most of the people attribute this welcome-able change of media’s reaction to Pawan Kalyan’s attack on some Telugu channels after they conducted debates on Sri Reddy’s abusive words on Pawan’s mother. People say, had Pawan Kalyan not attacked and damaged media reputation by highlighting their behaviour, they would have definitely debated Nani vs Sri Reddy’s issue for several hours now.

So, Pawan Kalyan’s fight with media – whether it damaged Pawan’s prospects or helped his prospects, we can not conclude now. But we can definitely conclude, that fight helped Telugu audience as well as Nani – as it made channels avoid some disgusting debates.

Sri Reddy should give evidence rather than naming anyone: Vishal Krishna

0

Tamil-Telugu actor Vishal Krishna, currently riding the crest of success with his digital hit “Irumbu Thirai/Abhimanyudu” is embarrassed and appalled by actress Sri Reddy’s naming game. He says if she can name Telugu superstar Nani, she can name anyone next.

Sri Reddy has accused Nani of seeking and getting sexual favours from her. The actor has sent her a legal notice for defamation.

Vishal, jumping to Nani’s defence, said: “I know him well. He is a very good friend of mine. But I am not defending him for personal reasons. This latest accusation by her (Sri Reddy) is perhaps the most outrageous yet. Anybody who knows Nani knows how particular he is in his behaviour towards men and women.

“She should come forward with evidence of her accusations rather than just naming anyone. It seems like she’s picking her targets randomly. For all we know, I might be the next one to be named by her.”

Vishal said the Telugu film industry is in the thrall of an unprecedented embarrassment.

“You never know who will be named next. I seriously think such grave allegations must be substantiated with evidence. Our laws about sex crimes are lopsided. Any woman can make the allegation and the law will act on that allegation and give the accused a chance to defend himself only later. This is not right.”

Having said this, Vishal feels the existence of the casting couch is very much a reality in the entertainment industry.

“In the Tamil and Telugu film industry, any Tom, Dick or Harry can open a office claiming to be a producer and ‘audition’ girls for roles. The stereotypical image of the starlet with her pushy Amma allowing the so-called producers or his assistant to take advantage of the young girl, is not off the mark.”

However, Vishal thinks this cliched view of the casting couch is now being subverted.

“You can’t just pick on people at random accusing them of sexual exploitation. Of course, exploitation exists, and not just in the entertainment industry. But that doesn’t mean people with impeccable reputations can be targeted.”

Sri Reddy lambasted Kathi Mahesh on casting couch allegations

0

It is known news that a junior artist Sunitha made strong allegations against Kathi Mahesh that he attempted to abuse her when she asked him for a chance in an event. Sri Reddy, who has been fighting the same cause, blasted Kathi Mahesh for his act.

“Kathi Mahesh, you should be ashamed for indulging in these kind of activities and yet giving lectures on TV channels. We won’t spare anyone until they get punished for doing injustice to woman.

Sri Reddy’s logical counter to Pawan Kalyan

It is known news that Pawan Kalyan yesterday advised Sri Reddy and other victims of casting couch to first go to police station and file complaints rather than spending time on TV debates. Today Sri Reddy countered Pawan Kalyan so logically. In a media interview, when the reporter asked what her reaction on Pawan Kalyan’s response on this issue, she countered his advice so logically.

She told, ” I like on Pawan Kalyan for his fighting Spirit and for his love for Telugu and Telugu people. I appreciate Pawan Kalyan’s fight on special category status. However, Pawan Kalyan is also fighting on special category status and so many other issues – without going to courts and other government wings. He is also fighting in his own way (like doing rallies). If his fight on special category status is correct, my way of fighting is also correct. I have the right of fighting the cause whatever way I like. Basically I didn’t like the way he responded as he didn’t even like to utter my name. As a fighter you should have given some respect for me also as I am also a fighter, though on a different cause.

We will have to wait and see how this turns.

Actress Sri Reddy follows Pawan’s advice, albeit in a different way

0

It is known news that Pawan responded on Sri Reddy’s issue and advised victims of casting couch to file complaints in police station and first go to courts to fight legally( https://www.telugu360.com/pawan-responds-on-sri-reddy-issue/ ). If justice is not met there, then, Pawan suggested, go to media. He opined, without filing complaints and without going to courts, just going to media channels doesn’t help to solve the issue. Sri Reddy now follows Pawan’s advice and has gone to Police station. Actress Sri Reddy complained to the police on small time artistes Karati Kalyani, Artist Satya Chowdhary. She accused them of verbal abuse and demanded police to take stringent action against them.

Surprising thing here is Sri Reddy did not yet complain to police on those who exploited her. She , so far revealed names of Daggubati Abhiram, Viva Harsha, Koratala Siva, Indian idol Sri Ram. She revealed whatsapp screenshots of her chat with them. However, she did not file any complaints in police station so far on those biggies who abused her. But (not so) surprisingly she filed cases on other small time artistes and female artiste for verbally abusing her. People do not understand why she is filing cases on these small artistes for verbal abuse why she is letting the strong and powerful go free without any legal action or police complaint

Pawan responds on Sri Reddy issue

Pawan Kalyan, Sri Reddy

Finally, Pawan Kalyan responded on Sri Reddy issue. Today he made a silent protest at Necklace road, Hyderabad to condemn abduction, rape and murder of the minor girl in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir. While condemning Kathua incident, media asked Pawan on Sri Reddy issue.

Pawan responded on the issue and told, “While I condemn this issue, I also suggest victims to complain in Police station and go to courts for legal action. Merely going to media and participating in debates in TV channels doesn’t help to solve the issue. It is ultimately Police and Judiciary systems that will make sure justice is done to the victims. Even though I support this issue, the way the issue is fought is not correct. Going to media helps improve TRPs of the channels but doesn’t help to resolve the issue. ”

He added, “Even during the shootings of my films, some criminal minded youngsters entered the spot and harassed women in my unit. I had to take law into hands and answer them ‘physically’. Finally, media should respond in these kind of issues responsibly and create social awareness instead of striving for sensationalism”.

MAA vs Women activists & channels vs netizens on Sri Reddy issue

0

Actress Sri Reddy’s strip protest still creating tremors in Tollywood. it is known news that after Sri Reddy’s protest MAA has condemned her act and confirmed the rejection of her application for MAA membership. Women activists and TV channels condemned the decision taken by MAA.

Actually many people feel that MAA has over reacted to the incident. Though they have every right to either accept or reject the application for membership (depending on their rule book), they cannot say- whoever acts with Sri Reddy also will be boycotted by MAA. So women activists and channels condemned the decision of MAA and made scathing comments on MAA and they questioned the over reaction of MAA. They remarked why did not MAA condemn when an MLA made vulgar comments on women working in film industry.

While questions by women activist and channels are fair and valid, people also questioning these women activists and channels on social media. They are questioning why these women activists did not utter a single word when journalist in a TV channel made vulgar comments on film industry in a live show. In social media netizens are also questioning TV channels. While they are appreciating this kind of condemning programs when Chalapathi Rao are MAA make such mistakes but they are also questioning where were these channels when top star like Balakrishna or Senior journalist in a live show made such comments. Netizens argument also seems to be valid.
