    The #MeTooIndia movement is at its peak with big names have started to tumble down with bigger revelations on an everyday basis. 

    Just days after actress radio jockey turned actress Nethra revealed her #MeToo story followed by Sangeetha Bhat sharing her ten years long ordeals without naming anyone, now it's renowned actress Sruthi Hariharan of Lucia fame who has opened up on her #MeToo. She has accused one of the biggest stars of South Indian film industry - Arjun Sarja, who she says sexually harassed her during the shooting of a bilingual film - Vismaya in 2016.

    “Honestly, I have been lucky as I have managed to escape physically and mentally scarring situations. However, in late 2016, there was one incident that left me startled and took a while for me to recover,” Sruthi shares.

    About the particular incident, she writes: “I was shooting for a bilingual film which starred Arjun Sarja. A man whose movies I have grown up watching. I was excited about the opportunity. The first few days seemed normal, I played his wife in the film and that day we were to do a romantic scene where we had to hug each other after a brief dialogue. During the 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. I was aghast. I am all for depicting realism in cinema, but this felt absolutely wrong. His intent seemed anything but professional. I hated that he did it and angry that I didn't know what to say then.”

    On why she chose to talk about it now, she goes on to add, “I choose to come out now, because henceforth I think Mr. Arjun Sarja needs to make sure he doesn't cross the thin line between two actors and use his position of power to cause another person discomfort or hurt”.

    “I choose to do this publicly - as this movement is more than you and me and our individual experiences. It is a collective voice to question an existing system of power play and to call a spade for what it is. The point is to be part of a larger battle against years of female oppression and abuse. It is a movement to make sure no man ever takes a woman's personal space for granted, whoever she is to him.”

  • Game Movie Review

    game movie image

    If you are looking for an unusual film that is different from the regular run of the mill that comes out of Sandalwood, Game is the film for you. It is a suspense film with loads of thrills and a few chills as well. It is like the thrillers that come out of Hollywood. A very rare kind of film in Kannada.

    Almost the entire film takes place in one night. Of course there are quite a few flashbacks to give the film a perspective. A dead body goes missing in a mortuary. The security guard is scared and runs away only to meet with an accident. The police investigation team arrives and takes stock of the strange happenings. The husband of the dead woman is the only suspect. He is summoned to the forensic lab. After his arrival, more strange things begin to happen.

    It is a tight story and screenplay with a fast paced narrative that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The background score and songs by Ilayaraja adds magic to the film. 

    This is Manisha Koirala's first Kannada film and she gives a professional performance. Arjun Sarja is on the top of the game. He gives a brilliant performance as the investigation officer.

    Game is a new kind of film for Sandalwood that will thrill all kinds of audience. Enjoy the show.

  • HC Orders Police Not To Arrest Arjun Sarja Till Nov 14

    hc orders police not to arrest arjun sarja

    In a sigh of relief to action king Arjun Sarja, the Karnataka High Court on Friday ordered police not to arrest him till November 14. 

    However, the court made it clear that the investigation into the complaint filed by actress Sruthi Hariharan accusing Arjun Sarja of sexually abusing her since 2015, shall continue.

    The actor who is accused of sexual harassment by actress Sruthi Hariharan, has approached the High Court seeking to quash the complaint filed against him by Sruthi, and the FIR registered based upon it by the Cubbon Park police. 

    Arjun Sarja has alleged that the case and complaint is a classic case of austere abuse of law and launching malicious and vile attacks on an innocent man who thrived hard all along to stand out with the portrait of gentleman.

  • I Never Held Arjun Guilty: Prakash Raj

    i never held prakash raj guilty

    Saying that he and Arjun Sarja have been friends for a long time and someone that he shares his journey along with as an artiste, the national award winning actor Prakash Raj has said clarifying that he never held Arjun as guilty.

    While clarifying his stand on the 'me too’ allegations concerning actress Sruthi Hariharan accusing Arjun Sarja of sexual harassment, Raj adds that he has known Arjun Sarja better than many.

    “Sruthi is not an 'opportunistic woman’ as many are accusing her of. She is a confident and talented woman. It is the same society which has helped her grow as an artiste just like any one of us. They both (Sruthi and Arjun) have a lot of potential to work further in various social fields. Hence in these backdrop, it is better for everyone to understand on what I am actually seeking for in this sensitive issue,” Prakash says.

    He concludes requesting a few seniors in the industry to hold a dialogue between the two and solve the issue at the earliest without any prejudice, and in an impartial manner.

  • Is Me Too Becoming Too Much ?

    is me tto becoming too much

    Today's Me Too allegation by Sruthi Hariharan against Arjun Sarja has set off a strange situation in the film industry. More than being outraged against the alleged incident most film industry people are questioning the allegation itself. This is not surprising for many reasons. 

    Forget that Arjun Sarja is a senior actor who has not had a single allegation against him for the last four decades since the time he was a child artiste. Also forget that he has an impeccable reputation and known as the 'gentleman'. The allegation comes from an actress who has been outspoken about the cause. A week ago she supported Sangeetha Bhat who made allegations without naming anybody. Before that she spoke in a media conclave saying casting couch was present in the film industry. 

    The Me Too movement may be an occasion for bringing out the skeletons out of the cupboard even if they are very very old. This incident Sruthi Hariharan speaks of is less than two years old. It is surprising that she did not make it an issue right on the spot. Her conduct after the alleged incident is also unconvincing. People who are trolling her and using harsh words on her are wrong in that aspect. But they are questioning why she continued to seen with Arjun Sarja after the shooting was completed. 

    There may be no time limit for Me Too but the accusers have to keep in mind that they need to provide the proof of the allegation. This is not just a legal requirement when the accused file a defamation case. It is also a moral obligation as the reputation of the accused is put to test before their families and public. Even if there is one iota of truth, the accused need to face the consequence. But right now Sruthi Hariharan has not made any case for legal action. She is not filing a compliant against him nor asked the KFCC or any other organisation for action. She has just named Arjun Sarja and put him in an embarrassing and career tarnishing position. If there is truth in the allegation let her demand action against him. She has said that she has proof of the incident. If it is real it should be made public instead of making such allegations which put the entire industry under scanner.
