Meera, who rose to fame with Pawan Kalyan-starrer Bangaram, had invited her fans to ask questions on Twitter. One of the fans asked who her favorite Telugu actor was. Meera replied Mahesh Babu. This answer pricked the NTR fans. They started tweeting about gang-raping and killing her. They went to the extent to curse that her parents should die of Covid-19.
Shocked by the sudden attack from Jr. NTR fans. in one of her tweets, she tagged Jr NTR and Mahesh Babu and asked NTR if he feels successful having such an abusive fan base. She requested him not to ignore the tweet.
She finally tagged the Hyderabad police, NCW and cybercrime team and reported about all the accounts that have been threatening to rape her. She requested Twitter to suspend all those accounts. She tagged Hyderabad police with all the screenshots.
