Self-proclaimed film critic Kathi Mahesh, recently, found himself in a difficult situation when an actor named Sunitha accused him of making sexual advances towards her and beating her up.
“I came to know about Mahesh Kathi a year ago through social media site- Facebook. We were just Facebook friends. I was shocked to see him in controversial reality show Bigg Boss. After his elimination, I called Mahesh Kathi to say that his Bigg Boss show was nice. In ‘Bigg Boss’ show phone call, Kathi said to his wife that he would go to Lucknow after the show but instead of going to Lucknow, he came to Hyderabad. He also invited me to his house. When I went to his house, Kathi asked me whether I would offer commitment. When I said no, then he locked the room, beaten me and resorted to sexual assault. He also offered me Rs 500. I have all evidence to prove my allegations against Kathi Mahesh,” she said on a TV debate.
Not surprisingly, Kathi Mahesh denied these allegations; however, he did admit to knowing her. He also threatened to file a defamation suit against her for making such claims about him. Now, this controversy is in the limelight again. As it so happens, actor Sri Reddy spoke about the issue on Twitter and made it clear that Kathi Mahesh will not be spared.
“We won’t spare anyone until they get punished for doing injustice to woman. Write a review on your shameless act,” added the lady.
This is indeed an explosive situation and it will be worth watching what happens next. In case you did not know, Sri Rreddy herself has been vocal about the ‘exploitation’ of Telugu girls in Tollywood. During her infamous strip protest, she had said the producers see intimate videos of local girls and take advantage of them but never give them work. .
