As was reported, Kannada actress Sruthi Hariharan made sensational allegations of sexual misconduct on senior actor Arjun Sarja.
“I was subjected to unwanted overtures by Arjun Sarja on the sets of a film in 2016. I could not raise the issue when the issue took place as there was no internal complaints committee in the film industry,” Sruthi told reporters.
She accused that Arjun included a foreplay scene which is not there in the script in his bid to touch her inappropriately.
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,” wrote Sruthi.
Shraddha Srinath who was also part of the film stood in support of Sruthi. She claims to be witness of the whole act. Shraddha Srinath acted in the UTurn Kannada original. She is pairing Nani in Jersey.
