It maybe noted that a social activist from Hyderabad had filed cases against actresses Anushka and Priyamani for appearing in ‘provoking’ costumes in their respective latest Telugu releases Mirchi and Thikka. Reacting on the subject, both of them have expressed their strong objections to the filing of the case. Following the filing of the case by the social activist, the Court had directed the police to watch these films and file a reply. The police are now said to be watching the recent films of these actresses to find out as to which sequence in which film has them appearing in a manner bordering on vulgarity.
It is expected that cases would be filed against them in the coming days. Reacting to this, Anushka has said “The filing of the case is a cheap publicity stunt and I’m not at all worried about it. Just because I am show sexily in some sequences of the film, I don’t think a case ought to be filed in a Court. I’d love to ask those who are against me to watch my performance in the upcoming film Rani Rudramma and then do whatever they want.”
Priyamani, the national award-winning actress for her performance in the Tamil film Paruthiveeran, has said that “I have never appeared in a vulgarish manner in any of my films. In fact, in the particular sequence referred to by the petitioner, I appear clad in a saree and dancing to the tune. Is wearing a saree considered obscene in India?”
Hope the two actresses do not land in trouble.
