Sri Reddy leaks is getting bigger, uglier and more scandalous than anyone thought and now director Kona Venkat has been dragged into it. The actress has been naming some of the biggest film personalities from the Telugu film industry for sexually abusing / trying to sexually force her for a job. The actress has taken the casting couch revelation to a whole new level by naming and shaming people like Suresh Babu’s son and Rana Daggubati’s brother Abhiram Daggubati, Indian Idol fame singer Sriram Chandra Maynampati, comedian Viva Harsha, Bharat Ane Nenu director Koratala Siva and Sekhar Kammula among others.
In her latest reveal, the actress has alleged that Kona Venkat asked her to come to his guest house and forced himself upon her. She made the shocking revelation while talking to a Telugu news channel Mahaa News. She further added that she was lured into coming to the guest house with the promise of arranging a meeting with ace director VV Vinayak to discuss a possible role in one of his films. However, once she reached the said venue, Kona Venkat sexually exploited her.
While there has been no reaction by all the aforementioned who have been accused by Sri Reddy for sexually violating her, Kona Venkat took to social media site Twitter last evening to say his side of the story. He lashed out at Sri Reddy and said, “I’m shocked with some allegations made by one actress against some film personalities including me.. I demand the government to conduct through police investigation in these allegations and punish whoever are guilty. Truth must prevail, legal action follows!! (sic).”
He also alleged that Sri Reddy is trying to get cheap publicity by talking about casting couch and naming biggies from the industry, “It’s really pity that film industry and film personalities have become soft target to many people who are trying to gain cheap publicity… I definitely support taking Telugu artists in our films.. In Geethanjali u find only Telugu artists. But this is unacceptable. I condemn it.”
