Hyderabad: TDP MLA Balakrishna has stoked controversy by making 'vulgar' comments against women.
The TDP MLA is also an actor and represents Hindupur constituency in Andhra Pradesh.
The comments are said to have been made during the audio releasing function of the movie 'Savitri'.
"If I play eve-teasing roles, and just follow girls, my fans will not accept. Either a kiss should be given or they should be made pregnant. That’s all. We have to commit ourselves," Balakrishna was quoted as saying by CNN IBN.
Actor Nara Rohit plays the lead role in 'Savitri'.
Balakrishna is the brother-in-law of Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu.
"We have received a complaint against Nandamuri Balakrishna alleging that he made some vulgar comments against women at an audio release function for a movie held three days ago. We are seeking legal opinion on the issue," Saroornagar police inspector S Lingaiah was quoted as saying by the website.
Meanwhile, YSR Congress MLA RK Roja demanded an apology from the CM and Balakrishna.
"While the top leadership itself has been pursuing anti-woman policies it percolates down the line resulting in the harassment of women at various levels and such government should apologise to the women community," Roja said.
