MUMBAI – Indian Telugu actress Sri Reddy has accused co-actor Naveen Babu Ghanta aka Nani of sexual exploitation and dashing her hopes of being party of controversial reality game show Bigg Boss-2 Telugu.
Both Nani and producers of the show have dispelled the allegations and termed them reckless.
Nani has also stated that he would take legal action against the ‘filthy’ accusations if Sri Reddy does not tender apology within seven days.
In an interview to Times of India, Sri Reddy said, “I was initially approached by the Bigg Boss team to be a part of the show. I gave my consent but when I did not hear from them for a month, I called them up to ask for an update. I was then told that they can’t take me on board because of ‘some politics’. I was shocked to hear that”.
She added, “Later, it became very clear to me that Nani was instrumental in leaving me out of the show. In fact, I’ve learned that he has gone on to threaten the organisers to leave the show if I’m a part of it".
