Actors expose Tollywood sleaze

Hyderabad: Telugu women film artistes shared their horrific experiences of sexual exploitation, being discriminated because of their colour, and getting less pay, in a round table conference on Sunday evening in Hyderabad.

Several Telugu character artistes, women activists, NGOs, advocates and Tollywood actress Sri Reddy participated in the round table conference, which opened up a can of worms regarding the industry.




A junior artiste Shruti said, “We are denied roles because we are dark skinned and fat, by the same men and coordinators who slept with us promising us a role in their movies.”

She talked of the poor working conditions, “Our leaders speak about Swachh Bharat, but artistes like us have to relieve ourselves in the open during shootings because there are no washroom facilities for us during the shoots.”
