The Telangana government on Monday formed an internal committee in Telugu film industry to take a stand against the sexual harassment cases. After the #MeToo storm hit the world, artists from the Telugu film industry too voiced out and shared their experiences from the industry. While many were shocking, one incident that stayed in the news for long was Sri Reddy. The young actress, protesting the harassment she faced, stripped in front of the Telugu Film Chamber in Hyderabad which caught everyone's attention. Many names popped up during the #MeToo movement and movie buffs were startled. And stepping in to manage situation, the government of Telangana formed an internal committee to counter the sexual harassment in the Telugu film industry.
After a lot of pressure from NGOs and Women Commissions, the Telangana government set up a committee called Committee Against Sexual Harassment (CASH). The government will soon announce the members of this committee and it is expected that women filmmakers and actresses like Nandini Reddy, Jeevitha Rajasekhar and Samantha Akkineni would be in the probable list. Appreciating this measure, Sri Reddy took to her Facebook page and wrote a heartfelt note addressed to the Chief Minister of Telangana, K Chandrashekhar Rao. "Being a Hyderabadi Proud moment today..Thank u soooooooo much real hero kcr garu..my dream came true today..from mark of bitch now you made me a heroine to this world..1 year of my pain gave the birth..g.o passed by government against sexual harrassment..for movie industry committee is forming soon on sexual harrassment..[sic]" wrote Sri Reddy in her post.
