Women at the entertainment sector have been coming forward with the horrifying stories of being sexually harrassed by the hands of bigwigs. Several perpetrators have been brought to light in the wake of the #MeToo movement which gained momentum recently. Where many bigwigs were accused of sexual misconduct, many other bigwigs came forward supporting women in every sector.
At the recent media interaction, superstar Rajnikanth broke his silence about the #MeToo campaign and said, “It is a useful movement for women, but they should use it properly and not misuse it.” When asked about singer Chinmayi's sexual harassment allegations against lyricist Vairamuthu, Rajni said, “Viaramuthu has denied the allegations, right? He has claimed no such incident happened and has called for a legal remedy.”
He also talked about Sabarimala verdict and the subsequent violence that ensued in Kerala. To be precise he said, “We should respect Supreme Court's verdict. But we should also consider the customs and traditions of the temples and respect them as well. It is my humble request.”
Rajnikanth recently wrapped up shotting of his film, Petta. It also stars Simran, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vijay Sethupathi, and Trisha in lead roles. The film was directed by Karthik Subbaraj.
