However, the gesture is being condemned by singer Chinmayi Sripada. She wrote, "Example of toxic parenting being lauded & called unique. She probably damaged the teenager's eyes for good. Deaddiction needs to be done by professionals. Some people should have NEVER become parents. Not to mention the other woman who comes to help the abuse. Send them to jail. [sic]"
She added, "This is a society that says "parents premathone kodthaaru kadha" parents hit/abuse/throw chilli powder, belt their kids, chappal their kids with love. No wonder kids grow up with such violence. And when such children want to cut off from their abusive parents - nothing wrong."
Chinmayi has also stated that the women in the video should be booked for "child abuse."If Child rights services in Hyderabad / Telangana can find this woman who calls herself a mother and the other woman as well - kindly find a way to book them under child abuse," she added.
