The #MeToo movement which caught everyone’s attention seems doesn’t stop here. With the several actresses and females from other fields sharing their unsavory experiences, some of the accused are getting into a defensive mode while others are threatening.
One director who has been facing the sexual harassment allegations is popular Tamil director Susi Ganesan from writer-filmmaker Leena Manimekalai. Leeana, in a post on social media, claimed that the director misbehaved with her in 2005.
Actor Siddharth who lent his support to Leena has claimed that director Susi Ganesan has threatened his father over the phone because the actor has come out in support of Leena.
Siddharth also said that after this threat, his support for Leena is only going to increase.
Here’s the tweet:
#SusiGanesan spoke to my aged father on the phone and threatened us with dire consequences if I continue to stand by Leena. So I just want everyone to know that now more than ever… I Stand With #LeenaManimekalai. Stay strong and fight the good fight sister! #MeToo #TimesUp https://t.co/aMNfxXm46M
