Reports say that Sona Heiden had demanded an open apology and gave 10 days deadline on the day she went public claiming that SPB Charan sexually harassed her. She also lodged a complaint against him. Later, their common friends intervened to find a solution to the issue and decided that the producer-singer should tender the apology in written rather than in public.
However, her 10 day ultimatum has reportedly been ignored by SPB Charan, as he has not given the apology. So, Sona Heiden has decided to stage the dharana with the support of women"s organisation, Jhansi Rani Women And Children Activists" Association. The actress has confirmed that she is picketing from today not only in front of his house but also outside the office of a popular vernacular for writing a derogatory article against her.
Meanwhile, SPB Charan has been granted interim anticipatory bail from the Madras High Court in the sexual assault case filed by actress Sona Heiden. The producer apprehended the arrest after the item girl lodged a complaint under Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Harassment of Women Act and IPC section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty).
Sona Heiden, who had reportedly agreed for a written apology to public apology with SPB Charan, seems to have not received the same from the latter. Hence, she has decided to take her protest to the next level by staging a dharna outside SPB Charan's residence.
