Chennai sources reported that the South Indian Artistes Association or Nadigar Sangam as it is popularly known has announced the setting up of an ICC, following weeks of allegations made against celebrities from the Tamil film industry, as part of the ‘Me Too’ movement online. Earlier on Monday, Nadigar Sangam President Nasser and Treasurer Karthi convened a Special Working Committee meeting of the actor’s body. Recently a two point statement released to the press read, “Although there are Sangam laws to safeguard the rights and self-respect of our members, a legally mandated ‘Vishaka committee’ will be constituted.”

Accordingly “It is recommended that an authoritative body be set up under the leadership of the Tamil Film Producers Council for the redressal of conflicts that arise at the shooting spot.” Meanwhile the Nadigar Sangam urged the TFPC to also include the Film Employees Federation of South India, the Tamil Nadu Film Director's Association and themselves under the ambit of this redressal body.

Moreover Monday’s announcement comes in the wake of several celebrities who were ‘outed’ as part of the Me Too movement online, including Tamil lyricist Vairamuthu. Furthermore other celebrities from the Tamil film industry who have been accused of sexual conduct by women include actor Radha Ravi, actor TM Karthik, actor John Vijay, singer Karthik, director Susi Ganesan, actor Arjun Sarja and actor-producer Thyagarajan.
