According to reports, she said that, "For how long they will delay membership to me? Now that a girl has removed her clothes and stood on the road, will thy be ashamed of their acts?" she said. If they don't give the membership even now, Sri Reddy plans to go cloth-less and protest until they give her the membership."

She also claimed that actresses from Andhra are not getting enough work in Telugu films.
