I have been working in this film Industry for 38 years and have worked for Tollywood and Kollywood. If I am scared, how will others send their daughters to act in movies? Many have a bad impression on how the film industry functions. Good and bad are common in every industry, not only in the film Industry. Even if you go to a bank, you will find good guys and also few people with negative thoughts. So there is good and a bad thing in each place and it is up to you to choose your path.
