Accordingly Me Too movement has come to the southern film industry, with several women actors speaking up against sexual harassment in their workplace. As per report it has been far from easy for them to do so, where many on social media and even journalists have questioned them on why they were speaking up now, after all these years.



Furthermore the disbelief is compounded by the fact that as actors these women may have worn certain clothes on screen or performed in certain scenes or roles that are considered “vulgar” or “bold” by the audience. Meanwhile this, several people believe, erases their right to complain when they are subjected to harassment and there seems to be a lack of understanding that what they do on screen is their work, performed with consent, while harassment is a crime.

Back in the day, the news was projected as Tanushree, who had been signed to do an “item” dance, throwing a “tantrum” for “attention”.
