Hyderabad: On Monday, Tollywood actor and producer Posani Krishna Murali held a press meet and slammed Pawan Kalyan for his fiery speech during the Republic pre-release event.
At the event, the actor-politician criticised Andhra Pradesh’s government’s stand towards the Telugu film industry and its alleged harassment of Tollywood actors due to political differences.
Questioning Pawan Kalyan’s objectionable language, Posani said, “Chiranjeevi never crossed the line and always used the right words to express his views. But, it is not good on the part of Pawan Kalyan to criticize the ministers and use objectionable language against them.”
While addressing an issue about a Telugu actress hailing from Punjab, he further said: “You (Pawan Kalyan) say that you respect women a lot through your dialogues in films. We have a task for you. Please do it. There is a girl who came to the Telugu Film Industry from Punjab with lots of dreams. She wanted to become a heroine. A big guy in the industry promised her a career, a new life, spent time with her, and also made her pregnant. He impregnated her and later forced her to get aborted.”He asked Pawan Kalyan if he has the guts to demand a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) enquiry on her issue.
