CHENNAI Oct 25: Expressing solidarity with poet Leela Manimekalai who had called out film director Susi Ganeshan as a sexual predator in the wake of the #MeToo movement.
Actress Amala Paul today announced that she too had been subjected to “double meaning dialogues, misrepresented offers and unchivalrous bodily contacts” during the filming of Thiruttu Payale 2 (2017), directed by Susi Ganeshan.
“I support Leena Manimekalai’s allegations and can imagine this episode happening with her, from a man who has a twisted set of moral values and utterly low respect for women.
She being an aspiring director could have made her an easy target for such an incidence to take place.
Me too despite being the leading actress for Thirutupayale 2 was subjected to double meaning talks, misrepresented offers and unchivalrous bodily contacts.
This pretty much made my experience of shooting TP2, a mentally fatiguing one.
I can totally understand what she could have been subjected through”, said Amala Paul.
