Around a week ago, entire Tollywood was utterly shaken when actress Sri Reddy released a few screenshots of her alleged ‘romantic’ WhatsApp conversation with a director. Even though Sri Reddy never revealed anyone’s name clearly, she gave enough hints during a live TV show and that made everyone wonder if she was pointing fingers at director Koratala Siva.
However, Koratala Siva said in a recent interview that he will react to the allegations levied against him when the right time arrives as he is completely occupied with Bharath Ane Nenu’s post h production. And finally, the soft-spoken director responded to the controversy through a video message today.
Koratala Siva said that he was “shocked” when he first came to know about his name being involved in the scandal. Siva went on to say that even though he wanted to give a clarification regarding the issue earlier, his friends had advised him to not respond to mere gossips.
“I come from a humble background and mostly traveled with my mother and now my wife in my journey so far. I give utmost respect to even a relatively new actress and make sure no woman is mistreated on my film’s sets as I am totally against casting couch. My wife and friends gave me a huge support in this issue and I wanted to clarify everything before I kickstart Bharat Ane Nenu’s promotions. I request the media and social media to think twice before jumping to conclusions,” Koratala Siva concluded.
