Chinmayi Sripada trolled for a forced kissing scene

Chinmayi Sripada has been considered as the torchbearer of the recent wave of #MeToo movement. She publicly accused renowned poet and lyricist Vairamuthu of sexual harassment by sharing a personal encounter with the latter. Her comments about Vairamuthu created a stir and the media covered the issue extensively.

However, this time around she had hit the headlines for a different reason.  Telugu movie Manmadhudu 2 starring Nagarjuna and Rakul Preet Singh is directed by Chinmayi’s husband Rahul Ravindran. The film featured a forced kiss scene between actresses Rakul Preet and Jhansi.

While the scene was blurred in the film, the uncut version was still available in its foreign releases. An image from the forced kissing scene has gone viral online and netizens are trolling singer Chinmayi for her double standards in not getting offended by a scene like this in her husband’s film.

Readers might remember that the singer was in the news recently after she had voiced her opinion against Sandeep Vanga’s comments on love and his film, which they claimed portrayed women lowly.

She had even got support from actresses such as Samantha and Anasuya who had also voiced their objection. Now, the Nagarjuna-starrer Manmadhudu 2 has been taking a lot of flak for portraying women in bad taste, but the singer hasn’t yet spoken a word about the film or her husband.

Samantha too, who had said she was ‘deeply disturbed’ by Sandeep’s remarks has been very silent about her father-in-law’s latest film.

The trolls began bothering Chinmayi, leaving unsavoury messages on her social media page after husband Rahul Ravindran’s film Manmadhudu 2 released last Friday.

One person’s comment on a social media read, “@OneGamingCT @Chinmayi Now you don’t act like a true feminist! We know you’re doing this for fame! You’re husband’s movie has offensive words Against women! And still you support that! You are doing this for fame #FakeFeminist #DEEPLYDISTURBING @Samanthaprabhu2 @anusuyakhasba @Chinmayi (sic).”
