Popular singer Chinmayi Sripaada was among a few from the South Indian film industry who made a few shocking revelations during the Me Too movement. She had also accused National award-winning lyricist Vairamuthu of sexual misconduct. Not only Chinmayi but a lot of other singers and celebs from the industry anonymously shared the horrifying experience they had while working with Vairamuthu. Chinmayi Sripaada has again taken to Twitter and reacted to a deleted scene from Thalapathy Vijay's Master that is in reference to sexual harassment. 

The deleted scene from the blockbuster film showcases a survivor being blamed for sexual harassment. Sharing it on Twitter, Chinmayi wrote, "So glad the director wrote this scene. Someday the survivor will no longer be blamed for sexual harassment. Until then we wait. And keep speaking up despite Vairamuthus and Radha Ravis and MJ Akbars of the world. Not to mention everyone else that stands with molesters." 

Being the perfect master for his students, the riveting scene sees Vijay, the charismatic teacher of the college, standing up for his students in front of the faculty, parents. 

Take a look below: 

Initially, during the #MeToo movement, the Telugu-Tamil singer and dubbing artist had shared stories by anonymous women. However, on being questioned about the stories she shared by anonymous women, she went on to share her personal experience also with Vairamuthu.

“Year 2005/2006 maybe. Veezhamattom. An album for Srilankan Tamizhs that I had sung in, as had Manikka Vinayagam sir. I dont remember if it was a book or an album release or both now; the performances and launch happened in Switzerland in (Bern / Zurich maybe). We sang. We went to Switzerland. We performed. Everyone left. Only my mother and I were asked to stay back. The organizer (I dont remember his name) asked me to visit Vairamuthu sir in a hotel in Lucerne. I asked why. He told me to cooperate. I refused. We demanded to be sent back to India. He said ‘You wont have a career!’ My mother and I both put our foot down, career vendam mannum vendam. Demanded an earlier flight to India and came back," Chinmayi had narrated the incident.

In a series of tweets, she had further revealed, "3, maybe 4 years ago, he had a book release function & asked me to sing Tamizh Thaai vaazhthu. I said I would be unable to. He in turn responded ‘I ll tell (a politician) you spoke ill of him on stage, yelled at me and kept the phone down. I bawled. My parents in law consoled me. Then had the courage to call his manager back & told him ‘I ll go and tell the same politician you re lying because I have NEVER given a political speech and HE will trust ME. This for refusing to sing. And you ask why victims dont name him?! To hell with those of you who do."
