Some of the shocking comments made by Actresses, Character Artists & Junior Artists during the press conference organized by Women's Organisations.
Sri Reddy: Lives of many women were crushed by the time a film gets completed. They sell virginity of girls like meat in the market. We don't get offers without sharing bed. When I sought offers, They asked sexual favours in return. I was denied offers even after offering commitment. To express my pain, I had stripped instead of revealing anybody's names or clothes. There are many such people in the Industry like Me. Why nobody questions Vakada Appa Rao despite ruining the lives of many women? Why because, Bigwigs fear the situation would be much worse if they react.
Character Artist Sunitha Reddy: If Producer pays Rs 3500 to 4000 per day, Coordinators offer us just Rs 1,500 out of it to us.
Actress Apoorva: When a Woman has protested on the road, Nobody bothered to ask her what's her problem. Even the Men who are 60-plus wants to share bed with us.
Artist Hema: I was threatened that movie offers will be denied if I support Sri Reddy.
Sandhya Naidu: Not just Young Girls, Even Aunties and 80-Year-Old Women have been facing sexual harassment.
Naga Lakshmi: Messages have been given onscreen but they behave like animals off the screen.
Tejaswini: Pawan Kalyan, Sekhar Kammula and Kathi Mahesh want us to proceed legally. Saying that is denying our right to speak.
Actress Jhansi: It's really tough to be in the Industry. Is being born as a woman a crime?
