Prakash Raj, Shraddha Srinath support Sruthi Hariharan over sexual harassment allegations against Arjun Sarja

#MeToo movement has taken the country by storm. After Bollywood, it is gaining momentum in the South Film Industry. Recently, popular singer Chinmayi Sripaada made claims against lyricist Vairamuthu and now Kannada actress Sruthi Hariharan has accused Arjun Sarja of sexual harassment. The actress in a long post shared that she was touched inappropriately on the sets of their bilingual film Nibunan or Vismaya. After being accused, Arjun Sarja is planning to take legal action against the actress. Arjun in an interview said that he has worked with many top actresses and nobody ever raised such a point on him.

“Filmmakers, often, ask me suggestions for improvisation of scenes considering my experience. If it is good they will accept it, else they tell me that ‘we will do it slight differently.’ In fact, there were lots of intimate scenes in the movie, but I refused to do it as I am not comfortable doing it. I also told the director that such scenes are not required for this film and if they still want it he would not be part of the project,” Arjun Sarja told in an interview to Public TV.

The actor further said how he is shocked by the accusations put on him. Arjun Sarja says, “I am not able to digest those accusations. If I don’t respond people might think that I might be guilty. So, I am out here to give my clarification.”

The actor also added saying he knows the importance of how much women should feel safe as he has his own daughter entered in the film industry. Further adding that how he appreciates Me Too movement but it should not be used for publicity.

On the other hand, Sruthi Hariharan is getting support from Prakash Raj, Shraddha Srinath. Shraddha took to social media and wrote how Sruthi had told her about the incident when they were a part of a chat show. Check out the tweets below:

    If his fans are coming out with death threats and molestation threats to her, and he’s doing nothing to stop them, who will come ahead and share their stories about him? Give a person a mask and see his true face.
