A few days ago, the noted dubbing artiste/singer Chinmayi claimed that the veteran poet Vairamuthu had once sexually harassed one of her friends. She also shared a few messages that the lady had sent her about Vairamathu's behaviour. Post this, she opened up about her own experience with the legend and claimed that he had once threatened to ruin her career. These revelations created a great deal of buzz in the industry and ruffled a few feathers.
Now, as part of the #MeToo campaign, actress Sruthi Hariharan has accused the noted actor Arjun Sarja of misbehaving with her during the shoot of Nibunan. In her tweet, she claimed that he touched her without her permission and claimed that that his intent was 'anything but professional'
"During the rehearsal, we delivered our lines and Mr. Arjun hugs me. With no forewarning or permission, he runs his hands intimately up and down my back. He pulls me closer with my body taut against his and asks the director if we could use this idea of foreplay in the scene. I was aghast. I am all for depicting realism in cinema, but this absolutely wrong. His intent seemed anything but professional. I hated that he did it and angry that I didn't know what to say then(sic)," she added.
Needless to say, this is a shocking situation and it will be worth watching whether Arjun reacts to these allegations or not
