I might be biased because I don’t know the extent of it in households. But if you corner me for being neutral and take my case, I can’t stay calm.”

He further added, “The women and men who are having an issue with Arjun Reddy, are they applauding me for Dear Comrade? If we’re fighting for women’s rights, you should sit there and congratulate me for Dear Comrade and Pelli Choopulu. But no one wants to talk about it. It just becomes like propaganda.”
