Sri Reddy is currently the focal point in Indian cinema after her allegations about casting couch in Tollywood and the manner in which she is protesting it. After having stripped her clothes in front of the Telugu Film Chamber office, Sri Reddy left everyone shocked by abusing Pawan Kalyan who suggested her to approach the police officials for just and not the news channels who would sensationalise it. Fans of Pawan Kalyan and general Telugu audiences were in a state of shock after Sri Reddy used the cuss word and the young actress started receiving death and rape threats on social media. Pawan Kalyan’s brother and actor-producer Nagendra Babu held a press meet yesterday and addressed few issues including Sri Reddy’s abuse language against Pawan Kalyan. He said that they are not reacting because they are strong people and have the strength to withstand all this.
And in a shocking twist to the whole saga, controversial filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma claimed that it was he who instigated Sri Reddy to use a cuss word against Pawan Kalyan for her benefit. It all started when few news channels reporting the POW activist Sandhya claimed that it was Ram Gopal Varma who pushed Sri Reddy to abuse Pawan Kalyan and it was not her idea. The splashes ran for couple of hours before Ram Gopal Varma took to Twitter and confirmed that it was he who instigated Sri Reddy to abuse Pawan Kalyan.
In a video message, Ram Gopal Varma said that his main motto was to give Sri Reddy a stronger platform and more support sine fans of Pawan Kalyan would be against her and she would get more support for many women organisations. “It all started when I first spoke with Sri Reddy over the phone. I spoke with her after I realised the intensity her protest had because no girl would strip her clothes on roads and stand there asking for justice. And I had seen her previous videos too which were superficial. But this act of her really caught my attention,” said Ram Gopal Varma.
“Sri Reddy had named Abhiram Daggubati, son of Suresh Babu, who is a dear friend of mine. I had spoken with Suresh about this and he said that he will not opt for any kind of settlement and will let the law take its course. I was worried about their family’s name and reputation since they all belong to the legendary family of producer D.Ramanaidu. With an intention to resolve the situation, I told Sri Reddy that I will talk to someone in their family and try to get you some hefty amount as settlement, let this all go. Sri Reddy refused that offer and I was stunned. Nobody would let go off such a huge amount, even people who are rich. So, that’s when I realised that her agitation was a genuine and true one and has a lot of intensity. I gave a piece of advice to Sri Reddy that if she wants to gain more attention, she will have to do it the way it happens in politics anywhere in world. Abusing someone! I suggested her Pawan Kalyan’s name to abuse so that she grabs all the attention and her agitation will be a strong one,” added Ram Gopal Varma.
Varma also said that it is not Sri Reddy who needs to be apologize and it was he since the idea was his. RGV apologized to Pawan Kalyan fans and all those people who were affected by the whole situation. After Ram Gopal Varma posted this video on his social media pages, there were mixed reactions from Telugu movie buffs and Pawan Kalyan fans, and many seemed to be lost in the thought of the happenings around.
