Female stars in Telugu film industry are irked with the ‘demeaning comments’ made against them by a television anchor.
Lakshmi Manchu posted on Twitter: “NO ONE can use such words generalising & labelling women, no matter what. Targeting actresses, will be least tolerated by our fraternity. I condemn this & won’t let this go easy. #GetALife than gaining publicity by speaking derogatorily towards the women of the industry.”
Lavanya Tripathi wrote: “Its shameful And disgusting, and not talking abt just this video, been seeing such videos quite a lot these days.. some ppl are trying to find different ways of disrespecting women, this way or the other..”
Rakul Preet Singh stated: “This guy should be ashamed of calling himself a journalist ! Abusive language n categorising actresses?? Reallyyy?? Is this what we sell in the name of debates ?? This is heights of stooping so low !! #GetALife.”
Meanwhile, the anchor has been booked for his remarks.
