An Indian actress has stripped Private in public in protest at a ‘MeToo’-style casting couch culture in the local film industry but got arrested.
Police arrested Sri Reddy after she staged the stunt in the city of Hyderabad, in southern India’s state of Telangana, home of the country’s Telagu.
Ms Reddy took off most of her clothes in a car park outside the Telugu Film Chamber of Commerce until she was Private with her arms folded across her bare Bosom s.
She said that she had resorted to the protest after making allegations of sexual exploitation against certain filmmakers without naming them.
Ms Reddy alleged that many producers and directors demanded Nood photos and videos from actresses competing for film roles.
Onlookers and journalists in the conservative country, where public nudity is a taboo, were also shocked by her protest.
