Last Saturday MAA president Shivaji Raja said that the 900 MAA members would not act with Telugu actress Sri Reddy after her vulgar public protest.
On Thursday The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) served notices on the Information and Broadcasting ministry and the Telangana government, calling for detailed reports on the alleged sexual exploitation of women in Telugu Film Industry.
Now according to the latest update, Movie Artist Association has withdrawn the ban imposed on Telugu actress Sri Reddy following the semi-nude protest seeking membership. In the latest Press Meet held yesterday, MAA President has corrected his version saying that all the members of MAA will extend support to Sri Reddy and help to make movies with her. Shivaji Raja further said Members of the film body were upset with the seminude protest staged by Sri Reddy. Shivaji has also asked the actress to treat him like an elder brother and take assistance on all aspects.
On the otherside, MAA President Sivaji Raja has refused to comment over the allegations against writer and director Kona Venkat and Suresh Babu’s son and Rana Daggubati’s brother Daggubati Abhiram.
In a Press Meet, Sivaji Raja said they are not associated with Kona Venkat. Reacting over the strong allegations against Daggubati Abhiram, MAA President said Suresh Babu’s son Abhiram is neither an actor nor a producer and added that the issue is not linked with MAA. Finally MAA has lifted ban on actress Sri Reddy.
