This business of naming and shaming the whos-who of the Tamil and Telugu film industry by starlet Sri Reddy is pissing off the entire South Indian film industry. Sources in positions of power in the Tamil and Telugu industry are now considering taking legal recourse to restrain Sri Reddy’s revelations.
In her latest post which is apparently about Tamil star Vishal Krishna she mentions she knows his “colour and size.” The post reads, “One more big celebrity is there in Nadiagar Sangam who harrassed heroines including side actresses for sexual favours…in front of the media, he is talking very clever, I saw today… but remember mr.fake perfect, I wl not leave you.. I know your size and colour too.. i wl prove to media also nd to the lawyers also.. i hv pakka proof.. u do what you can do.. u gave money too to few women after u slept forcibly, do u think u are ruling Tamil film industry & nadiagar sangam & producer council?” (sic).
While refusing to comment directly on Ms Reddy’s post, Vishal Krishna does point out the absurdity of targeting people without proof. “She (Sri Reddy) will have to come up with evidence to substantiate her allegations. These sleazy posts are not helping the MeToo cause, it’s only bringing notoriety to the lady ’s reputation. Maybe she thinks by talking like this she will get roles. But she is wrong. Roles are given for merit in any film industry, not for extraneous reasons.”
Vishal feels such arbitrary accusations are bringing a bad name to the MeToo movement. “We are all for outing sexual predators. But naming and blaming randomly is not only unconstitutional but also unethical.”
