Several Telugu artistes, women activists, NGOs, advocates and Tollywood actress Sri Reddy participated in the roundtable conference, which opened up a can of worms regarding the industry.

On the other hand, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma compare Sri Reddy to empire Ashoka. This is what he tweeted,  “Those condemning @MsSriReddy on how she can project herself as a social activist now when in her past she did such deeds and language she used, are not realising that a change of heart is what made even the tyrant king Ashoka great. Ashoka, the king, killed many people and then he had a change of heart and became a saviour of lakhs of people, and that is why I think @MsSri-Reddy is as Great as Ashoka the Great(SIC)”
