The news of the kidnapping and molestation of a popular Malayalam film actress has created ripples among actors in the whole country The incident came as a shock to those in the Tamil film industry too where the actress had worked in a few movies and actors here were quick to extend their support As more details emerged on her traumatic ordeal on that fateful night near Kochi many other leading ladies came out and shared stories on the harassment they faced at different points in their lives and careers Only last week actress Varalaxmi Sarathkumar revealed the harrowing ordeal of dealing with harassment Being popular Tamil star Sarath Kumar’s daughter Varalaxmi was exposed to the showbiz from her younger days Yet no one could prepare her for the harassment that she would face while just doing her job “You’re conditioned not to speak about these things I think it’s time we start standing up for ourselves When you hear about stories that keep happening to other women it’s a bit too much it’s getting worse these days I think it’s about time we did something about it” she told Firstpost Varalaxmi has now proposed to kick-start a campaign to help women facing sexual harassment enlisting the support from the state government “We require more mahila (women) courts in the district and Taluk levels and we need the verdict within 6 months That’s the ‘Save Shakthi’ campaign We

Priyanka Priyamani Sona Heiden and Varalaxmi Sarathkumar The need for an exclusive platform for women in films is evident going by the sheer number of cases of female stars and starlets who have faced some kind of harassment or another while at work Many top actresses have been mobbed groped and molested while attending public events like shop inaugurations or other promotional events Actress Sandhya who has worked in Tamil and Malayalam films popularly known for her role in Balaji Sakthivel’s Kaadhal had recently opened up on being harassed at a crowded event venue In 2008 Shriya slapped a self-professed fan who misbehaved with her while coming out of the Tirumala temple Female celebrities frequently face such situations some of which are even caught on camera yet rarely speak up on such issues Occasional accounts of actresses who revealed their casting couch experiences in the industry shine a bright light on what they go through behind the screens and their stories are no different from that of an average woman on the street In October 2016 actress Athithi (also known as Athira Santhosh) attempted suicide consuming poison after allegedly being "tortured" by director Selvakannan In a video that emerged the debutante actress accused the director of locking her up and sexually harassing her while working onthe film Nedunaalvaadai She accused the director of confining her and snatching away her phone and at times even holding her by the neck against a wall to stop her from going out She alleged that her repeated complaints to the film bodies including the Nadigar Sangam (South Indian Cine Artistes Association) and the Tamil Film Director’s Union had yielded no results She also speaks of police apathy when she tried to press charges against the perpetrator In the same year another actress Ishaara Nair was reported to be absconding from the sets of Engadaa Irundeenga Ivvalavu Naalaby the makers of the film who then filed a complaint with the Kerala Actors Association Ishaara later shared her side of the story in an interview to a newspaper and alleged that the film’s director Kevin Joseph of misbehaving with her and harassing her on the

Joseph with actor Ishaara and Suraaj Two of the widely reported instances of directors using their artistic liberty as a veil to physically assault their leading ladies in front of their whole crew members have unfortunately been now brushed under the carpet In 2007 Samy a new director slapped actor Padma Priya on the sets of his film titled Mirugam Padma Priya refused to let the matter slide and approached the Nadigar Sangam demanding action against the director The filmmaker’s pitiable attempt to justify the act claiming it was done to elicit the right expression from her found no sympathisers and earned him a year-long ban from the industry Regrettably no lessons were learnt In a similar instance in 2016 a young actress Sri Priyanka sustained an ear injury after her co-star Kalanjiyam slapped her for real while enacting a scene in the film Kodai Mazhai “No one explained the scene to me if they had I could have prepared accordingly The director Kathiravan had instructed my co-star Kalanjiyam about the scene though I remember the director and co-star discussing that the scene had to look realistic It came as a big blow when it happened and I fainted Later he apologised and when I got all right I went back to the sets and finished the movie” Sri Priyanka recollected Unlike Padma Priya Priyanka did not pursue the issue further “Nadigar Sangam had called up and asked about me and my dad spoke to them I was in no state to speak to anyone at that point” she narrated As she continues her work in small-budget entertainers her parents now accompany her to the sets “I find that heroines who come from other statesto work in films here face far lesser issues as the producers and crew members take care of them well They are not taken for granted Whereas in my case despite being a Tamilian I have to ensure my own safety while working in Tamil films” she noted woefully A recent interview with director Suraaj revealed the callous and disrespectful attitude that filmmakers often have towards their heroines The Kathi Sandaidirector courted controversy when he opined that the job of the heroines was to only provide the glamour quotient “They are plenty of other platforms if they want to act — here audiences pay money only to watch the glitz” he ventured He even confessed to having gotten his costume designers to trim the hems of his heroine’s costumes
