Actress Sri Reddy, who is popular for her role in Arvind 2 recently made allegations that she was asked for favors in return for a role in films by many top filmmakers and was never given any work. The actress is raising her voice against casting couch in TFI and also not giving the offers for Telugu heroines. Yesterday she took to social media page and posted some comments against a director. She didn’t reveal the name but indirectly dragged Sekhar Kammula’s name.
Now Sekhar Kammula reacted to that, and he said, he is a man who would live and die for character, and he would never do any such activities. The film maker also said, “The allegations are baseless. it publicity stunt and there is no truth in this. Sekhar has asked to tender an apology for the allegations made by the actress since his family and people close to him were hurt by these allegations.
His FB post read, “I could never imagine in my wildest dreams that a woman whom I don’t know, have not seen or never spoken to in person or on the phone can suddenly make these baseless allegations.” Here is the full statement of Sekhar Kammula:
“Yesterday a social media post maligning me came to my notice. It is vulgar, demeaning and full of lies. It has caused deep grief to my family, to me and many more who value me.
I could never imagine in my wildest dreams that a woman whom I don’t know, have not seen or never spoken to in person or on the phone can suddenly make these baseless allegations.
Whatever might be their intentions and whoever might be involved in this diabolic act, I would like to say that it is WRONG, IMMORAL and CRIMINAL .
People who know me and my work would be aware of the kind of importance I give to equality of women and their empowerment. I live by my CHARACTER and die by it. I will not spare anyone who tries to point fingers at it.
APOLOGIZE and take back every word that was posted against me or be ready to face legal action, which will include criminal/civil proceedings.”
