Telugu comedian Ali calls Anushka Shetty “hot jalebi”


Popular Telugu comedian Ali has reportedly made some sexist comments on ‘Baahubali’ actress Anushka Shetty at the audio launch of upcoming film ‘Size Zero’ in Hyderabad.

According to a report in The New Indian Express, Anushka who is currently ruling the Telugu film industry following her successful films ‘Baahubali’ and Rudhramadevi’ was compared by Ali to “hot jalebi” with “extraordinary thighs” at the event on Sunday, November 1.  

Referring to Anushka who plays the lead role in ‘Size Zero’ along with Arya and Sonal Chauhan, Ali said, “Anushka looks like a hot Jalebi who everybody likes to eat.”

He didn’t stop at this and went on to compare Anuksha’s thighs with those of ‘Jannat’ actress Sonal. Addressing the anchor of the event Suma, the comedian said, “Sometime back you had asked the other girl (Sonal Chauhan) to slap her thighs. However, she has no thighs. Anushka has really remarkable thighs. Ever since I saw her in ‘Billa’, I became her fan.”

‘Billa’ is a 2009 Telugu film in which Anushka had donned a bikini.

The report adds that Ali had invited criticisms in the past too for his sexist remarks about female actors. In 2014, during the audio success meet of the Telugu film ‘S/O Sathyamurthy’, the comedian had made a few comments about actor Samantha's midriff. While the who's who of the Telugu film industry slammed Ali for the comments, Samantha dismissed the episode by saying that Ali had made the comments in a 'light vein'.
