Actors slam Chalapathi Rao

Even as Chalapathi Rao issued an apology, many actors have come down heavily on him for his comments against women.

“I didn’t mean to hurt anyone. If I had hurt your feelings, I am sorry. But, I was angry when they asked me if ‘girls are harmful’? Do we sleep with snakes? No. That’s why I said woman are harmless and that’s why we sleep with them. I don’t even understand what’s wrong in that. Some channel, that does not know Telugu, reported it and others are spreading it like cancer. I will never insult a woman. I will always treat women with respect like mothers and sisters,” he said.

Nagarjuna Akkineni said, ““I always respect women personally and in my films/I definitely do not agree wt Chalapati rao’s derogatory comments/dinosaurs do not exist!!”

A statement from Rakul Preet Singh said, “seniors should  know where to draw the line in scenarios like this.”

Ram Pothineni said, “With due respect…we don’t expect a Sorry from you…But instead we feel Sorry for you for having lived so many years without realising the true value of a woman.”
