A couple of days back, the government of Telangana has set up a special committee to deal with the women harassment cases in the Telugu film industry. Many noted technicians like Nandini Reddy, Paruchuri Gopalakrishna, Supriya and Jhansi have been appointed as the panel members for it.
Following its footsteps, Kollywood has also set up a similar committee. Nadigar Sangam, the body of the Tamil film industry, had started a panel to deal with the MeToo cases in the industry. It will be headed by senior actor Nasser and will also have other actors like Suhasini, Kushboo, Rohini, Karthi, Vishal and Murugan as the panel members.
MeToo movement has gained momentum in India during last year when many actresses and technicians came out and shared their sexual harassment stories. Many big names from the Tamil industry were also accused of sexual harassment, by a few female artists in the industry.
