#MeToo: Chinmanyi Accuses Vairamuthu Of Harassment; Lyricist Responds
Oneindia | 10th Oct, 2018 06:49 PM

In a rather shocking development, a female singer has accused the noted Tamil lyricist Vairamuthu of sexually exploiting her a few years ago. The lady revealed that the veteran poet had tried to kiss her and effectively scarred her for life. She also described the incident as the 'worst experience' of her life. The singer added that she still hasn't told her husband about the incident, as he might stop her from pursuing her career any further.

The lady also made it clear that several people in the industry are aware of Vairamuthu's 'predatory' actions, but they have never done anything about it.

The complainant's good friend and noted singer Chinmayi shared screenshots of the messages she had sent her and condemned Vairamuthu for his alleged actions. Chinmayi, however, refused to reveal her friend's name.

"I cannot stop shaking. My Friend will remain anonymous.@vairamuthu Why people cannot share at the risk of their careers.And bloody hell #MeToo!!" she added.

Shortly, thereafter, she sharted her own experience with Vairamuthu and levelled allegations against him. She claimed that he had threatened to destroy her career when she refused to sing for him.

Responding to these claims, Vairamuthu hit back at Chinmayi and implied there was no truth behind her claims. Following this, Chinmayi called him a 'liar'.

Interestingly, of late several women have been coming forward to share their harassment stories and shame the offenders. Certain sections of the media have dubbed this as 'India's #MeToo movement'. Several popular names from Bollywood, such as the Kaala star Nana Patekar and director Rajat Kapoor, have been accused of wrongdoings.

Sexual exploitation in the workplace is a sensitive issue and let's hope that these revelations go a long way in improving the situation.
