The controversy over the Telugu season of Bigg Boss 3 refuses to die down. Journalist Swetha Reddy who had alleged harassment by executives of Star Maa, the television channel where the reality show is aired, and said she was asked inappropriate questions when she was approached for being a contestant on the show, has now taken on host Nagarjuna.
“If Nagarjuna does anything for money, I dare him to send Amala (wife) and Samantha (daughter-in-law) into Bigg Boss House. That way, they can earn more money,” said Swetha.
Her ire is directed at the Telugu superstar for not reacting appropriately to the allegations and distancing himself from the show.
When Filter Kaapi asked Nagarjuna about the allegations having cast a shadow over the show, he said, “Law is looking into it, beyond that I do not want to say anything about it.”
Swetha asks how can Nagarjuna promote his `Manmadhudu 2′ which releases on 9 August and refuse to address the issues raised around Bigg Boss.
“Does Nag have no social responsibility? He is holding press meets for Manmadhudu 2 promotions, he is justifying liplocks at the age of 60 and promoting himself as a youngster. How much bank balance does he want. Why has he not responded on the issue raised by us,” said Swetha.
Bigg Boss sets are erected on Annapurna Studios in Hyderabad, which is a property owned by Nagarjuna and his family. It is the first season he is hosting. This week’s TRPs have been the highest so far across all seasons of the reality show.
