After Samanta and Siddharth faced the heat of Superstar Mahesh fans on commenting against ‘1’ Nenokkadine poster, now Sekhar Kammula joins the group of Sam supporters. After Sam posted a tweet she kept mum on the issue and never reacted to Mahesh fans. Sekhar took his own sweet time on this but he strongly reacted and wrote below message on his Facebook.
“Just saw the poster of 1 Nenokkadine and read what Samantha tweeted…….I share the same views….it is regressive, no doubt about it…but what is shocking is the ruckus that is being created against her…….Its her opinion and she has every right to express it…and it has nothing to do with Mahesh Babu. Its how a woman has been projected on a poster and how she felt about it.
This is not the first time we have seen posters like this or films that protray woman regressively but its heartening to see a main stream heroine react. Manam brathike unnam anna feeling ecchindi… hats off Samantha for actually starting a debate…this is good for our industry…its a great sign….
When a top heroine sees a poster and feels that women are shown regressively, it is time for all of us to think about it rather than attack her. Perhaps many women feel the same way about the way we show them in our movies.”
Fans strongly argued and came up with some exposing images of Samanta’s films and questioned her if they are not regressive. But do you guys agree when a clean film maker like Sekhar reacts strongly. Post your comment and let us know.
