Telugu actress Sri Reddy, who caused a flutter recently by stripping in front of the film chamber office, today complained to police that two women, who had taken part in a TV debate with her, were making defamatory comments about her.
She complained that she was also threatened, police said.
Police said appropriate action would be taken after conducting an inquiry and obtaining legal opinion.
The TV channel is located under a different police station limits, they said.
The actress had on April 7 stripped in public and staged a protest in front of the film chamber office here, alleging that local artistes were not being given enough opportunities in the industry.
She also complained of sexual exploitation of women in the regional film industry.
The NHRC has sent notices to the Information and Broadcasting Ministry as well as the Telangana government, seeking detailed reports on the issue.
