Me Too movement has taken the country by storm and many celebrities have been exposed. The one-year-old #MeToo movement, which started in Hollywood, had failed to take root in India, but finally, the celebrities from the film industry are speaking up on the issue. The movement is gaining momentum in India, and with this more and more women are coming forward to share their horrifying stories. Recently, Kannada actress Sruthi Hariharan accused Arjun Sarja of sexual assault and unprofessional behaviour during the shoot of Vismaya. Now, another actress has spoken up. Tamil TV actress Lekha Washington has left everyone stunned with her tweet on #MeToo.
Lekha Washington tweeted, “One word : Kettavan. #metoo”. The tweet does not read anyone’s name except the name of the film, Kettavan, a 2008 film which starred Simbu aka STR opposite Lekha Washington in the lead roles. However, the tweet has not gone well among the fans of Simbu who think that the actress is indirectly dragging the actor in the Me Too Movement. The fans of Simbu have been trolling the actress for indirectly accusing Simbu of sexual misconduct by naming the film.
A few days back, she posted “Spent the day today agonising about whether to talk about some of the stuff that’s happened #MeTooIndia”
One word : Kettavan. #metoo
