Nagarjuna wants to postpone Bigg Boss 3 Telugu in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against makers: reports
According to reports, actor Akkineni Nagarjuna has asked the makers of Bigg Boss 3 Telugu to postpone the shooting schedules. This is in regard to the allegations raised against the makers, who reportedly asked for sexual favours from a few female contestants.
A Hyderabad-based woman journalist reportedly said that she was asked for ‘sexual favours’ by the makers, after she was selected for the third season of the reality show. “We received a complaint on July 13 afternoon from a senior journalist and anchor stating that in March, she received a call from Bigg Boss Telugu stating that she has been selected for its third season which will begin on July 21. She accepted the offer and met four members of the reality show. As per the statement, during the meeting, those four members misbehaved with her and asked her to satisfy their boss for the final selection for the show,” a police officer reportedly told a leading media organisation.
A case has been filed under Section 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) in Banjara Hills police station.
After Nani and NTR, Nagarjuna announced that he will be the host of the show on Twitter. He said: “Me and my pandu. This season in BiggBoss house no acting only reality!!”
On the professional front, Nagarjuna will be seen in Manmadudhu 2.
