Until recently, Chalapathi Rao was known only as a senior artist who turned a character artist from a small actor who used to play the villain roles. The entire industry and the people of the Telugu States were startled when he said women are good only for the bed.
He made one more controversial statement which could escalate further. He commented on the dressing of women and said women must dress decently otherwise, it’s men’s right to comment or tease them. It’s their birth right to tease women as per the regressive mindset of Chalapathi Rao.
He also advised women to compromise when men comment on them because it was their dressing that had instigated men to say such things. He also took a class to the interviewer why women are made to drape a saree or a half saree on entering into puberty. According to him, it’s to cover their chest portion. There is a saying, ‘Once a thief is always a thief.’
