Me Too: After Leena Manimekalai, Amala Paul says Susi Ganesan also misbehaved with her

Me Too movement has taken the country by storm with more and more women coming out to share their horrifying stories. The movement started after actress Tanushree Dutta revisited a 10-year-old incident where she accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment. In the Tamil film industry, Susi Ganesan, Vaiaramuthu and TM Karthik have been accused of sexual harassment. Tamil writer, filmmaker and poet, Leena Manimekalai recently opened up about her accusations against film director Susi Ganesan.

Leena Manimekalai had accused Ganesan of sexual harassment and now another actress has accused the director of misbehaving with her. Amala took to Twitter and recounted that she was sexually harassed on the sets of her 2017 movie. She tweeted, “Just got the shock of my life! @DirectorSusi & @sgmanjari called &I picked up to explain the stand.While I was trying to pacify his wife; Susi strted abusing me&to my surprise his wife strted laughing&they both joined to slut shame me. De feel de can scare me with dese tactics (sic).”

Amala said, “Me too despite being the leading actress for Thiruttupayale2 was subjected to double meaning talks, misrepresented offers and unchivalrous bodily contacts. This pretty much made my experience of TP2, a mentally fatiguing one. I can totally understand what she could have been subjected through (sic).”

On the other hand, Susi Ganesan’s wife, Manjari Susi Ganesan called Leena’s accusation as ‘Me Too fraud’.
