We had reported earlier ,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;
For the firt time reacting on the subject, both Anushka and Priyamani 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.
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?”
We only hope both of them don’t get into further trouble!
