A day after his lewd comments against women, telugu actor Chalapathi Rao has been booked for the same in Hyderabad.

The senior actor has been booked under section 354 a (IV), 509 IPC at Saroor Nagar Police Station for his controversial remark on women.

Earlier, another Telugu actor Nagarjuna reacted to his comments and compared Chalapathi to a "dinosaur."

The 57-year-old-actor took to Twitter and slammed his comments by writing, "I always respect women personally and in my films/I definitely do not agree wt Chalapati rao's derogatory comments/dinosaurs do not exist!!"

Even social media was pointing out Nagarjuna's silence on the issue as the controversy revolves around his son's movie Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam.

For the unversed, senior actor Chalapathi Rao at the pre-release function of Telugu movie Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam said that "girls are not harmful, but they are useful on bed."

This comment comes in response of a dialogue in the movie, which says, "girls are injurious to mental peace."

Interestingly, the event, at which Chalapathi made those comments, went live on a few Telugu channels.
