Much has been spoken, discussed and debated about the shocking #Metoo allegations on the very talented actor-director-producer, Action King Arjun Sarja who has been accused of unacceptable behaviour by his Vismaya co-star, Sruthi Hariharan.
Sruthi, who acted as Action King's on-screen wife in the movie, alleged that she was subjected to sexual assault by the movie's hero in the pretext of intimacy-based sequence improvisations. She even claimed that the senior hero had put forth certain unacceptable personal offers to the young heroine off the camera time, which made her one of the many victims of the #Metoo gate incident.
Reactions to this saga is being pouring in from many corners of the industry. Both industry insiders and fans are seen reacting vigorously, while the majority of the support is being vouched in favour of Arjun Sarja.
On the other hand, stars like Prakash Raj, Kavitha Lankesh, Shraddha Srinath, etc., have taken the side of Sruthi Hariharan. Post responses from Arjun's mother, father-in-law and the producer's council head, Muniratna, Arjun Sarja's wife and yesteryear actress Niveditha Arjun has now reacted to the #Metoo incident.
A disappointed Niveditha questioned back Sruthi as to what she was trying to prove or put forth as a point. She brushed aside the entire saga as a rubbish allegation, since she felt there is no substantial hold in the actress' allegations. She ridiculed the fact that the allegations of sexual assault during the time of film shooting or rehearsals as a part of the movie's exercise doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
Niveditha stated that Arjun has been in the industry from the past 40 years and his personal track record over these years is a testimonial of his character. She was happy to witness unanimous support from the industry and fans and was confident to come out clean by submitting relevant proofs as and when needed.
Niveditha spoke to Arjun's mother who was in the studio and offered her some encouraging and consoling words. The yesteryear heroine requested her mother-in-law to calm down and not take the incident too deep into the heart. She also added that her husband would come out clean from the said issue.Arjun-Sruthi Hariharan Controversy: Action King's Daughter Accuses Actress Of 'Misusing' #MeToo
