Jhansi, Nandini Reddy, Supriya in high-level committee

The Government of Telangana has instituted a high-level committee to look into complaints of sexual harassment at workplace in the Telugu film industry.  This is meant to address the concerns of vulnerable sections like women, who are victims of casting couch, exploitation, etc in the film industry.

Anchor Jhansi, filmmaker Nandini Reddy, and the Akkineni lady Supriya have been made part of the committee.  Besides, a professor, a doctor and a social activist are also part of it.  Thus, it's a combination of industry persons and others.

The committee has come about because of the efforts of the likes of Nandini Reddy.  Talasani Srinivas, the Cinematography Minister, was always favourable towards it.
