Many spoke about casting couch in Tollywood and people like Sri Reddy and others stirred controversy by dragging the names of the top celebrities. However, nothing concrete happened as they stopped short of lodging a police complaint against them whom they accused.
In the midst of all this, Manjari Fadnis who entered Tollywood with Siddu From Sikakulam and went on to romance Young Tiger NTR in Shakti, made shocking revelations. It is known that after Shakti, Manjari did not star in any Tollywood films.
Manjari revealing the secret why she disappeared from Tollywood said, “I was offered a crazy role under the top banner. However, after paying the advance, the makers shocked me by asking me to sleep with them. So I gave them left and right and rejected the offer. This was the reason why I couldn't continue for long in Tollywood. This was the reason why many talented young girls are not attaining stardom in the industry. I went into depression after that incident and it took a long time to come out of it".
