Sri Reddy, who shocked the entire film industry by going topless in public alleging sexual exploitation in Tollywood, seems to be paying a hefty price for her daring act.
The Telugu Movie Artists Association (MAA) has categorically stated it will not accept Sri Reddy‘s membership application after the obscene act she did outside the Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce. They also said that AMMA has gone on to state that actors who will work with her will find their membership suspended.
Later, the actress was also told to vacate her house in Hyderabad.
"My owner called me and told to vacate my house,what a great people..he is working as an ias ..such a narrow minded people..U dnt even imagine how rude talking..Big people game started [sic]," Sri Reddy wrote on her Facebook page.
During the last weekend, the actress had taken the extreme step to draw the attention of the people and media. She went topless in public in front of TV cameras to protest against what she called a discrimination against Telugu actresses.
She claimed that Telugu filmmakers pay in crores for North Indian actresses, while local talent - who are ready to work even if they pay very less - are being ignored.
In an interview with The Times Of India, Reddy said that some Telugu filmmakers asked her to send naked photos and videos as a precondition for roles in their films. "They see the videos and give no roles. They have even asked for live nude videos from me. That is the extent to which they go to take advantage of women who seek roles."
Sri Reddy is not the first Indian actress to have come out and spoken about casting couch in the industry. Before that, several big names from the film industry, such as Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Parvathy, Rakul Preet, Radhika Apte have spoken of bad experiences.
