The Bigg Boss Telugu 3 started with a bang on and almost has come to a week within a few days. The 15 contestants have been making a lot of noise with their verbal spat and drama, the show was also mired with the controversy of sexual harassment. Amidst all this, for the first time ever, show host Nagarjuna has opened up about the controversy surrounding it.
During the promotional event of his upcoming flick, Manmadhudu 2, Nagarjuna opined his views about the controversy when asked by a journalist. He said that he isn’t aware of the details of the controversy, adding the show has been shot in several languages and aired in 15 countries. He went on to add that anyone out of thin air can create controversy but he is happy that the law is taking it course. “I am very happy that the High Court and the Telangana Police are looking into it. They will definitely do a good job and carry out a proper investigation. If there’s anything wrong, the wrongdoers must be punished,” Nagarjuna said.
Meanwhile, the four members of the show organisers have been served legal notices who will be questioned under Code of Criminal Procedure 1973 (CrPC) clauses.
The accused are Ravikanth, Raghu, Shyam and Abhishek of the STAR MAA coordinators. The case was slapped after Swetha reddy, woman journalist accuses them of indecent behaviour and sexual harassment. Previously, Telangana High Court gave a four-week relief to Abhishek Mukherji in the sexual harassment case. Meanwhile, Shanti Bhushan Rao, the legal advisor of Swetha Reddy has said, “The quash plea has been accepted because the police has evoked only Section 354 (A) against the accused (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty). The FIR should have also charged Section 420 of IPC against the accused (which deals with cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property). Mukherji is clearly at fault of giving false promises to the complainant and cheating her.
