Popular heroine Sruthi Hariharan who works predominantly in the Kannada film industry has now accused none other than Sr hero Arjun Sarja (Gentleman, Oke Okkadu fame) of sexual harassment. She revealed an incident that happened on the sets of their film in 2016 and stunned everyone.
While filming for their film Vismaya in 2016, where Sruthi played the role of Arjun's wife, the senior hero is said to have hugged her intentionally and without any indication, with his body touching against her fully. Though the director hasn't said to do that, Arjun has hugged her and ran his hands through her back, the actress revealed in a Facebook post.
"Though I'm game for realistic cinema, that doesn't mean one would touch inappropriately without consent and need. Also, Shruti revealed Arjun used to ask her to meet post work which she never did. She asked senior heroes to create a good environment to work for, rather harassing young girls that way.
On a concluding note, Sruthi added, "It's time we give courage to the survivors, to take their perpetrator's name. It's time we create history for the future men and women. It's time we become more powerful than ever".
Both Sruthi and Arjun Sarja's daughter, heroine Aishwarya Sarja are of same age. we have to see what Arjun will say about this.
