Casting couch debate in Telugu cinema industry gathers steam

Casting couch debate in Telugu cinema industry gathers steam”

Sruti, an actress alleged that Pawan Kalyan said that he will not give film cast chances for local Telugu girls. She was also labelled as a "slut" by fellow female artists.

Around 15 women started the Sthree Shakthi Movement on Sunday, April 15, and organized the first roundtable meeting to share their stories of sexual exploitation in Tollywood. What followed, according to her, was nothing but threats. Pawan opined that Sri Reddy should have taken the legal route to seek justice for herself, instead of creating sensationalism through the media.

One after the other, every woman artiste who came to speak, aged 18 to 40, stated that they are sexually exploited in exchange for a few seconds on the screen. Most often, they end up without a role. Recently, another Telugu actress Sandhya Naidu left everyone shocked after revealing about how the industry demands sex at night. He further tweeted, "Ashoka the king, killed many people and then he had a change of heart and became a saviour of lakhs of people and that is why I think @MsSriReddy is as Great as Ashoka the Grea". The deal is always, what's in it for me if I help you get a role, she added. "That same night they would text me asking what kind of dress I am wearing, why don't you send your sexy pictures, nude pictures, and pictures in a two-piece", a victim was quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle. Besides this, conditions, while they are on location, are pathetic.

Apart from Sandhya, artist Sunitha Reddy also said, "We have to change clothes outdoors and relieve ourselves outdoors. Real truthful and honest women will only follow Sri Stree Shakti", he added. "We are not going to stay silent anymore".
