For the last few years, the #MeToo campaign has been a significant force in the film industry, providing a platform for actresses to share their experiences of harassment. Although its momentum has slowed down, it remains a relevant issue.
However, there have been recent social media posts claiming that well-known actress Nithya Menen vaguely mentioned a distressing encounter with a prominent Tamil actor. According to these reports, Nithya allegedly stated, “I once encountered harassment from a Tamil star hero who exhibited inappropriate behavior and invaded my personal space during a shoot. It was mentally exhausting.”
It’s important to note that Nithya Menen did not disclose the actor’s name in her statement but confirmed that it was a star hero who had harassed her. She also mentioned facing similar issues within the Tamil film industry.
These allegations have sparked speculation about the identity of the star hero involved in the harassment. However, Nithya Menen clarified to a web journalist that she never made any such statements and was shocked by the false information circulating in her name.
