Women activists criticising Megastar and Pawankalyan

Women activists on Friday criticised Praja Rajyam chief Chiranjeevi and his brother Pawan Kalyan saying that irresponsible popular films were inspiring youth to harass and attack girls.

The actor brothers faced the ire of women activists when they visited engineering students Swapnika and Praneeta who were injured in an acid attack in Warangal on Wednesday.

Ms Sandhya, leader of the Progressive United Democratic Women’s Organisation, and her fellow activists said that in many films, heroes were shown to indulge in attacks against girls when they spurn their love. "Such cinemas are polluting young minds," she said. "Teasing girls is projected as heroism. The so-called heroes are constantly shown to harass the heroines."

The PDWA leader said that teasing and harassment of girls was a constant fixture in Ravi Teja’s films.

"The hero does not want the consent of the girl but always forces her to accept his love," Ms Sandhya said while confronting Chiranjeevi and his brother. "What kind of message does it give to the public?"

Chiranjeevi, however, did not give a direct reply when the women activists drew his attention to many such films. Instead, the Praja Rajyam leaders said the government was primarily responsible for such incidents. "Parents are scared because of such incidents," said Chiranjeevi. "So the government should give free hand to the police. Stringent action should be taken against the culprits involved in the acid attack on these students."

It may be recalled that Ms K. Swapnika and Ms Praneeta, both B. Tech final year students in the Kakatiya Institute of Technology and Sciences in Warangal, suffered burn injuries after the attacker, Srinivas, threw acid on them on Wednesday.
