No lady lyricist has made a mark for herself in Telugu Film Industry by writing songs continuously. But the lyricist Shreshta is changing that scenario in Tollywood now. She became popular for her lyrics for the songs in the movies, Pelli Choopulu and Arjun Reddy. Shreshta has penned the lyrics for Madhuram Madhuram song in Tollywood’s latest sensation Arjun Reddy and the lyrics for Chinuku Taake, Merise Merise song in Pelli Choopulu. She has not only penned the lyrics but she has composed the tune for the song.
Recently, the tinsel towns around the globe are getting shaken with Hollywood’s big producer Harvey Weinstein episode. And then, this campaign called #MeToo started on social networks, with various celebs and other women revealing the sexual harassment they faced.
Shreshta also responded to the #MeToo campaign on sexual harassment and assault. Boys/Girls who have faced sexual harassment at some or the other point in their lives are sharing their horrific stories on the social media platforms using #MeToo in the status.
However, in a recent interview, Sreshta revealed that a lady director for whose movie she wrote lyrics persuaded her to come to Goa for partying. Sreshta revealed that the lady director told her that a guy wants to propose to her.
“Later that so-called guy whom I never met has called me and told that Lady Director herself offered me to him. Also, he said that as I came to industry, I’m prepared for any such acts. I threatened with police case and then distanced from the film industry for years”, said Sreshta. Later she also added about a producer’s wife who asked her to cooperate with her husband.
Sreshta further added ‘Giving my response for #MeToo at least alerts others. Also in the film industry, not just guys, but women are also enemies to women’.
