Ramifications of sexual exploitation in Telugu Film Industry-NRIs living in Jacksonville, Florida have decided to express their solidarity for TFI working women by not watching Telugu movie ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’ . Leading actor of the movie is Mahesh Babu.
No male actor has come forward to condemn the sexual exploitation prevailing in TFI ever since the issue was raised by one of the artist. Looks like victims include underage kids and Telangana Govt has failed investigating the issue.
Protest is titled ‘BharathaSthreeAneNenu‘.
In a message Jax NRIs appealed,
Bharatha Sthree Ane Nenu..
