Sri Reddy has constantly been in spotlight since she sensationally staged a protest in April this year alleging casting couch against certain producers. She also went public against actor Nani accusing him of sexually abusing her and scuttling her chances to be a part of this year’s Bigg Boss Telugu season 2. Of course, both Nani and the makers of Biff Boss Telugu have rubbished her allegations.
The first season of the Bigg Boss 2 was hosted by Jr NTR, who could not continue with his role this year following his shooting commitments. The makers of the reality TV show then roped in Nani.
Sri Reddy on Tuesday took to her social media page to shower praises on Jr NTR calling him the ‘King of Tollywood.’ She wrote, “To this generation Jr.ntr is a king of a tollywood and to the bigboss#lion.” Her comments were understandably aimed at teasing Nani, said people who are familiar with the controversial model-actor.
Many of her fans on Facebook agreed with her even though a section of them felt that the undisputed king of Tollywood was Chiranjeevi.
Earlier this month she had publicly urged the makers of the reality show to not replace Jr NTR with Nani. She had written, “All are missing junior ntr in the big boss show.. nobody replace him..people are upset wt this guy..saaho #young tiger @tarak9999.”
On 16 June, when a Twitter user wrote that he wasn’t impressed by Nani’s expressions as a host of this year’s Bigg Boss, Sri had taunted him with a tweet that read, “Congratulations Nani.”

Nani has already threatened to initiate a lawsuit against Sri for her defamatory allegations against him. He had tweeted his intention to drag Sri to court earlier this month with a caption ‘Patience has a limit.’

In April this year, Sri had staged a topless protest on Saturday morning outside the office of Telugu Film Chamber, saying that she was asked to send inappropriate pictures and videos to get a chance in Telugu films, and threatened to expose the names of people who “exploit young, aspiring actors”.
“They will ask us to send inappropriate pictures and videos. Are we girls or things to play with? But we will not get an opportunity,” she had added.
She was later taken to police station. The Tollywood film industry had, however, denied all her allegations. An FIR was also filed against her for making derogatory remarks against the fraternity.
