Accordingly nearly a week after the MeToo movement hit the Tamil film industry, President of the Nadigar Sangam and the Tamil Film Producers Council, Vishal has announced to set up a three member probe committee to look into these allegations. Meanwhile when speaking at the press meet of his upcoming film on Saturday, he said, “We are forming a three member committee for all bodies i.e. Nadigar Sangam, FEFSI, TFPC, and Film Chamber. It is a platform to make sure women are safe and to ensure unity in the industry. Meanwhile at the same time, it will also be a platform to show that we are there for the women actors, from junior artistes to senior artistes.”



Further refusing to take a stand on not working with Vairamuthu, Vishal said that law needs to take its course and the matter needs to go to court to be proven.  He said unsarcastically “After everything is analyzed and proved, of course, we will not be sitting and watching even then”. Moreover Vishal pointed that “MeToo is to bring about awareness to be united against sexual harassment. Section 201 is there. Being silent when a crime happens and covering up evidence is a crime and he is not saying it is a crime. Just like how Amala Paul immediately got justice, they will also get justice.”

Moreover Vishal seems to have been referring to film actor Amala Paul who had alleged harassment at a rehearsal for a show in January this year. Finally the popular actor approached the police soon after the incident to report a stranger who had walked into the dance studio to ‘solicit’ her.
