Telugu actress Sri Reddy's leaks about famous personalities are all in the news and now she has shared another dirty secret of Tollywood.
After naming Telugu filmmaker Suresh Babu’s son Abhiram Daggubati, Kona Venkat, Koratala Siva, Viva Harsha, Sreeram Chandra amongst others as sexual predators, the actress has now alleged that producer Vakada Appa Rao sexually exploited female artists including minors.
Recently during a debate on a Telugu news channel Mahaa News and also on her Twitter handle, she posted a picture of Vakada Appa Rao with a caption saying, "#srireddyleaks This Executive producer Vakada Appa Rao, He sexually abused and exploited hundreds of female artists including 16 yrs girls also😭 (SIC)"
But the most interesting thing happened during a debate in Mahaa News as the TV channel received a series of calls from women who identified themselves as Shreya, Srivaani and Sridevi among others. They alleged that they too were victims of Vakada Appa Rao’s sexual assaults.

మెగా స్టార్ చిరంజీవి గారు ఇతను మీ పేరు చెప్పుకుని ఎంతో మంది ఆడవారి జీవితాలను నాశనం చేసాడు, దయచేసి ఇటువంటి వారిని ప్రోత్సహించకండి 🙏 pic.twitter.com/gXkG9nBdCW
Another victim named Hema said that Rao sexually exploited her on the promise of giving her role in films produced by him and used her ‘for one full night’.
Vakada Appa Rao too joined the debate on Maaha TV over the phone and denied all the allegations made by Sri Reddy or other artists who connected with the channel over the phone.
Rao is a big name in Tollywood, associated with big budget movies like Chiranjeevi’s Khaidi No 150 and Rangasthalam star Ram Charan’s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy.
Now, Sri Reddy is slowly getting support from other members of the Telugu film industry. The actress' leaks have always had support from controversial filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma and this time, after the Sri leak about Vakada Appa Rao, the director demanded immediate action against the producer. In his tweet, he said, “I am deeply shocked with the horrific reality of Vakada Appa Rao and every civilised person's hearts should go to his sexual victims and I implore upon the authorities to take immediate notice of his terrible atrocities (sic).”
In a series of tweets, Varma also congratulated Sri Reddy for “taking such immensely courageous decisions and for achieving such a sensational and BLOCKBUSTER ViCTORY.”
In an interview with Times Of India, Sri Reddy said: "Today, the industry is so unsafe that women are willing to enter a prostitution ring, but not the film industry.”
