Telugu actress Sri Reddy has been grabbing the headlines for the last week or so after she named a few top male celebrities for their alleged involvement in casting couch in the Telugu film industry.
Now, in an interview with India Today, Sri Reddy has accused a producer's son of sexually exploiting her. Without revealing the name of the person, Sri has claimed that he used to force her to have sex with him.
"He used to take me to the studio and he used to f**k me. He is the son of a top producer who is ruling the Tollywood. He used to force sex on me. He would ask me to come to the studio and I said I will go only to talk, not for any sexual act. But after going there, he used to force (me to have) sex," the report quoted the actress as saying.
Though Sri Reddy has not named the person, she has agreed to reveal the identity along with a few photos. She also gave a shocking statement that the people from the film industry use studios like "brothels".
Sri Reddy's allegations have left the Telugu cinegoers wondering about the identity of person who 'sexploited' her. "Who is unnamed producer's son who sexploited budding actress? #SriReddy," a fan wrote on Twitter.
The actress had recently stripped and went topless before the public and media in front of the office of Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce in Hyderabad to show protest against casting couch.
Sri Reddy says that North Indian actresses get offers to work in movies as they are "flexible" in terms of giving "sexual favors".
In an interview to a TV channel, the actress said, "For the last 10-15 years, we are only watching North Indian girls as the heroine. Why not Telugu girls? A lot of people are saying that these North Indian girls who are coming from the other states, they will give them sexual favours and all. That's the reason Tollywood filmmakers are showing interest toward these North or other state women. That is the only reason they are getting roles; because they are flexible to everything, and Telugu women are not."
The actress claims that many filmmakers have asked her to send nude photos and videos. Despite fulfilling their requests, Sri Reddy was not given any role in their movies.
