#MeToo: Vishal hints at form­ing com­mit­tee

Sunday Express - - TAMIL NADU -

AT a press meet in Chen­nai on Satur­day, Vishal, pres­i­dent of the Tamil Film Pro­duc­ers’ Coun­cil and gen­eral sec­re­tary of the Nadi­gar Sangam, com­ment­ing on the #MeToo move­ment, said it was time for the women in film in­dus­try to speak up, and that he would give his sup­port. “To this end, we will soon be form­ing a com­mit­tee. I to­tally re­spect the in­nu­mer­able women who have opened up but it would be best if women in the in­dus­try re­ported these in­ci­dents to us, as and when they hap­pen. Case in point is Amala Paul who in­formed us of one such in­ci­dent and we helped her out.” Asked if Vaira­muthu will be boy­cotted, given singer Chin­mayi’s al­le­ga­tions against him, Vishal said, “It de­pends on whether the al­le­ga­tions are proven.”
