A video clip of a news debate on a Telugu news channel has been doing the rounds, where the anchor of the channel is seen having a rather heated discussion with Telugu actor-director Posani Krishna Murali. In the video, the anchor, Sambashiva Rao, asks the actor about brokers in the film industry.


SSR: “In your cinema circle, are they no brokers? Before getting into politics, shouldn’t you eradicate all this?”

 “Who’ll tell us who are there in cinema? Despite being educated, there is not a bit of decency in them.”

Actress Lakshmi Manchu, this morning, shared the video and slammed the news channel for demeaning actresses on air.

According to Telangana Today, a woman has lodged a complaint with the Jubilee Hills police in Hyderabad against the TV5 anchor and the actor for saying derogatory things about women. Meanwhile, Telugu360 reports that a complaint under Section IPC 509 has been filed.
