Actor Vishal, who is the general secretary of Nadigar Sangam (actors' union), had asked the actress to come forward with evidence. He had even criticised her and said she picked her targets at random. Karthi, the treasurer of the association, also addressed the actress' accusations and called them baseless, reported India Today.

Adding to this he said if Sri Reddy had proof, she should have approached the police. He also mentioned that Nadigar Sangam would be releasing an official statement soon.
