Chennai-based theatre artiste Ananya Ramaprasad took to Facebook to share her #MeToo story
Chennai: The #MeToo movement continues to go strong with new allegations of sexual harassment coming to light with each passing day.
In a recent incident, Chennai-based theatre artiste Ananya Ramaprasad took to Facebook to accuse actor Rajinikanth's 2.0 co-star of sexual harassment. She wrote, "I am a victim of sexual, mental and emotional manipulation, abuse, and most horrifically, gas-lighting, all at the hands of my abuser, Maya S Krishnan."
Ramaprasad shared that she was 18 when she first met a 25-year-old Maya during a production of a play in 2016. “She took control of my life and slowly cut out all my friends (friends I have had since school). It wasn’t as simple as her ordering me to stop talking to someone (although that happened as well), she also started spreading lies about my friends to me, about me to them and manipulated me into hating and resenting them," she wrote.
However, her post now seems to either been deleted or in private mode and is no longer accessible.
Meanwhile, Krishnan has denied all allegations saying, “The account has manipulated the facts of the incident to make me look like the abuser, which is not the case. I am open to assisting and answering all questions and will be entirely cooperative with the legal authorities, and the actions they are taking to unearth the truth. I have already filed a case against my abuser and the organisation that named and defamed me, and inquiries are underway by the police, as of October 17th 2018. Ananya’s post, defaming me has also been brought to the notice of the officers and authorities who are investigating my case."
