The entire glitz and glamour industry is witnessing many #MeToo stories and the movement refuses to die down any soon. The latest to be accused of is popular South actor Arjun Sarja where actress Sruthi Hariharan in social media narrated the ordeal accusing him of sexual misconduct on the films sets.
Sruthi Hariharan Accuses Arjun Sarja Of Misbehaviour
“The first few days seemed normal, I played his wife in the film and that day we were to do a romantic scene where we had to hug each other after a brief dialogue. During the rehearsal, we delivered our lines and Mr. Arjun hugs me. With no forewarning or permission, he runs his hands intimately up and down my back. He pulls me closer with my body taut against his and asks the director if we could use this idea of foreplay in the scene. I was aghast,” she wrote on Twitter.
“I am all for depicting realism in cinema, but this felt absolutely wrong. His intent seemed anything but professional. I hated that he did it and angry that I didn’t know what to say then,” she added.
