Sri Reddy Leaks: Human Rights Commission Notices to TS Govt

Sri Leaks: What did Suresh Babu offer Sri Reddy?

Sri Leaks: What did Suresh Babu offer Sri Reddy?

The actress had on April 7 staged a semi-nude protest outside the Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce.

The NHRC has also taken note of the fact that since MAA does not yet have a committee against sexual harassment (CASH) the actress can not seek redressal of her grievances, if there is any sexual harassment at the work place.

On Thursday, the NHRC sent notices to the Telangana government and the Union Information and Broadcasting Ministry over Sri Reddy's allegations of sexual exploitation and disparity in the work culture.

Sri Reddy's allegations have prompted the authorities to look into the presence of evils like sexual harassment and casting couch in Tollywood.

In a press release, the Commission quoted media reports and said the actress had questioned the State government and the Movie Artistes Association (MAA) on the absence of the Committee Against Sexual Harassment (CASH) due to which, she alleged, female actors could not represent or seek redressal of their grievances, if there was any sexual harassment at the work place.

The Commission observed that the contents of the media reports, if true, tantamount to inaction of the part of the state government. Further, it had warned action against those artists who share screen space with her. She also said she was deliberately being denied membership in MAA.

Therefore, it appears to be an attempt to muzzle the voice of the whistleblower both from the sides of MAA and the state authorities.

Few hours after the development, Telugu Movie Artists' Association (MAA), which had banned the actress along with all the artists who have worked with her in the past describing her act of strip protesting publically disgraceful has lifted the ban on Sri Reddy. Rejecting her charges a day after the protest, office-bearers of the MAA had said several Telugu actresses had over the years got adequate opportunities in their film careers.

On the otherside, Sri Reddy alleged that Suresh Babu's son and Rana Daggubati's brother Abhiram Daggubati sexually exploited her.
