sexual abuse followed by murdering done on Pratyusha is just a tip
of the iceberg about the insecure lives of heroines in the Telugu
film industry. Possibly, this is the reason why Telugu girls from
respectable background fear entering film industry, though they
are beautiful and talented. Probably, this is be one of the reasons
why Teja and Krishna Vamsi, who went for a talent search for a suitable
telugu fresh heroine, could not get one and hence they resorted
to Mumbai to import heroines.
The film industry
is a man's arena and most of the heroines are treated as objects
of sex. Most of the heroines in most of the cases meekly accept
casting couches. Over a period of time, the heroines need social
security. Hence, they tend to get a comforting shoulder from any
man who is closely associated with or part of the film industry.
The heroine's lifetime on screen is pretty limited and this glamour
field teaches them lavish life style along with the acting lessons.
of any heroine starts at the moment a heroine accepts to be the
part of casting couch. As the movie offers become scarce, some of
the heroines resort to the flesh trade to make quick bucks. Once
they enter flesh business, the heroines get greedier and try to
exploit men. In the trade-off, man wins the game and the heroine
is completely exploited.
Here are a couple
of examples of two of the famous Telugu heroines. The names are
not revealed to protect their identity.
Story-1: A Telugu
heroine is in trade business. One NRI from London interacted with
her and give a couple of blank cheques to her for her service. He
specified the upper limit to her to be put on those cheques. But
that heroine withdrew an amount exceeding a crore. That NRI asked
her to return the money. When she refused to do so, he organized
few goons to attack and lacerate her. Top-level industry people
had to come to her rescue to save her. She was admitted in hospital
for 7 days to get basic medical attention.
heroine enticed the kin of a top pharmaceutical company and made
him present her a valuable land in the heart of Hyderabad. It took
the industry big wigs and underworld mafia to threaten her to give
that land back to that person.
The above two
examples showed the greediness the heroines posses once they enter
the business of making money unethically.
over a simple fact on why top heroines like Sridevi, Jaya Sudha
and Jaya Prada married to men who are already married once. And
most of these hubbies did not even divorce their first wives. This
shows us how insecure are the lives of even top heroines. They badly
need a shoulder from a guy related to film industry.
The Telugu film
industry is directly or indirectly responsible for current plight
of heroines. Its time for the industry to do introspection. Ask
the heroes, heroines, producers and distributors who are eagerly
introducing their brothers and sons to industry why can't they introduce
their daughters as heroines. Here lies the answer. Its man's world!
Who's to blame
for this? The Industry BigWigs? The Cine Mafia? The indiffirent
law? In this murky world of movi-mafiadom the answers hardly come.
Most of the parents do not let their daughter into this industry.
Well.... we sure can't blame them for that.
