Indian actor, politician, director Kamal Haasan finally broke his silence on the on-going MeToo movement and said that women should be encouraged to speak up while expressing solidarity with the current scenario.
In a recent interview, media asked about the Tamil film industry's silence over the issue even when some of the biggest names of industry are being accused of sexual-misconduct.
Kamal told the reporters, “People who have been accused should come out and speak. If all of us comment on it, it will be wrong and unfair. Women should open up about their concerns. The MeToo movement is a welcoming change but it has to happen in an honest way.”
Earlier, internet broke down when multiple women from Tamil film industry accused lyricist Vairamuthu of sexual misconduct. However, popular singer Chinmayi has publicly alleged that he made her feel uncomfortable at least in two occasions.
On the similar note, Vairamuthu completely falsified the rumors and said, "It has become fashionable to cast aspersions on those who are popular. In recent times, I have been shamed repeatedly. This is one of them. I dismiss anything other than truth. Truth will win".
What followed next was a war-of-words on Twitterati, have a look at it below:

It is absolutely unfair to smear professionals.
Do NOT support and do not give it credence.
