Chinmayi Sripaada, the playback singer is one of the few celebrities who relentlessly advocates the Me Too movement in South Indian cinema and uses her social media platforms to share abuse stories of victims. Few months ago, the singer raised allegations against lyricist Vairamuthu of molesting her when she was a teenager. But this time Chinmayi has slammed versatile actor Kamal Haasan for inviting Vairamuthu to the inauguration of his new Raj Kamal Films International office in Chennai. Kollywood superstar Rajinikanth and Mani Ratnam were also among the celebrity guests in inauguration ceremony.
She wrote on her Instagram, “MeToo has ruined the lives of the men accused of sexual harassment. The constant comment is accusing a man of molesting will ruin his life and career. Vairamuthu has been a chief guest at multiple DMK events, IAS officer training academy events, Tamizh Language events, book launches and Industry events in this entire year. Nothing has happened to him. I was banned almost immediately. “
