A police complaint was lodged against noted Telugu actor and MLA N Balakrishna by a section of lawyers today for allegedly passing ‘vulgar’ comments against women at a movie function, police said.
Balakrishna, a TDP MLA from Hindupur constituency in Andhra Pradesh, is the brother-in-law of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
“We have received a complaint against Nandamuri Balakrishna alleging that he made some vulgar comments against women at an audio release function for a movie held three days ago. We are seeking legal opinion on the issue,” Saroornagar police inspector S Lingaiah said.
Wading into the issue, YSR Congress MLA RK Roja today demanded an apology from the CM and Balakrishna on the issue.
“While the top leadership itself has been pursuing anti-woman policies it percolates down the line resulting in the harassment of women at various levels and such government should apologise to the women community,” Roja told reporters on the eve of International Women’s Day.
