Coming back to #MeToo, many actresses and female artists have joined the movement to shame those people, who had sexually harassed them in the past. Chinmayi narrated many such incidents from her life and named Vairamuthu as one of those who misbehaved with her.
Amala Paul, Yashika Aannand, Leena Manimekalai and Sruthi Hariharan are among many others who took the courage to speak about the issue.
