Days after Telugu actress Sri Reddy accused actor-filmmaker Raghava Lawrence of sexually exploiting her, the latter has finally broken his silence.

In a press release, the Kanchana actor, said, “Sri Reddy has told that she met me during the making of Telugu movie ‘Rebel’ and it is already been seven years since I did the movie. Why didn’t she report this then itself ?”

Lawrence said, “She told that she came to my hotel room and I misused her. She also stated that she saw God’s photos and Rudraksha mala in my room. I am not a fool to keep Rudraksha mala at hotels and do pooja. I haven’t done any mistake I know about myself and God knows. I saw all your interviews I only feel pity on you. Your problem is that everyone betrayed you saying that they will give you chance to act?

“In front of all press people I will give you a character and scene to act and give you some dance steps to dance that doesn’t mean I will give you difficult ones like I do. I will give you simple steps and dialogues, to test just the basic quality an actress should have. If you really have talent, you will get chance. This reply is not because I got scared. It is because I respect women and that’s why I built a temple for my mother and dedicated it to women,” Lawrence said.
