Sruthi Hariharan addresses a press conference The 29-year-old actress addressed media a day after she named 54-year-old Arjun of sexually harassing her through a Facebook post. "During a (film) rehearsal, we delivered our lines and Mr Arjun hugs me. With no forewarning or permission, he runs his hands intimately up and down my back. He pulls me closer with my body taut against his and asks the director if we could use this idea of foreplay in the scene," the actress had stated in her post. Credit: IANS
