#MeToo: Sruthi Hariharan finds supporters in Prakash Raj and Shraddha Srinath over her sexual harassment allegations against Arjun Sarja

For the uninitiated, Sruthi Hariharan had accused Arjun Sarja of touching her inappropriately under the pretense of doing a romantic scene with the actress. The two had come together for the bilingual film Nibunan aka Vismaya. On the other hand, followed by her accusations, Arjun Sarja has decided to take legal action against the actress.


Coming to the support she has received from the industry, she found it in Prakash Raj. The actor took to twitter to share a post with the hashtag, ‘#IAmWithShruthiHariharan wherein he encouraged her to stand with truth:

Besides him, another celebrity who came out in support of Sruthi was the co-actress Shraddha Srinath. In the same platform, the actress shared a series of posts wherein she revealed that she had discussed the same with Sruthi way back in 2016 during a chat show but then the actress hadn’t revealed the name and chose to refrain from doing so. But now that the #MeToo has gained immense momentum, it has motivated Hariharan to speak about the trauma she went through. Here’s a glimpse of Shraddha’s tweets:

Coming to Arjun Sarja, he has denied all the allegations. He also added that his own daughter in the industry and keeping in mind the same, he doesn’t want trivialize something as important as the #MeToo movement. In these reports, Arjun has maintained that he doesn’t want people to misuse something as serious as sexual harassment for publicity. He also asserted that he has worked with top actresses in the industry but none of them have ever thrown such accusations on him.

On the other hand, Sruthi and her supporters are also facing immense backlash from Arjun fans who refuse to believe that their idol could sexually harass someone. The actress has been receiving many tweets slamming her for the allegations and also tweets asking for proof of the incident that happened with her.
