Actor-turned-politician Rajinikanth today extended support to the #MeToo movement that is sweeping across the nation but also cautioned against its misuse. “MeToo is a good movement, but women should not misuse it… MeToo should be used correctly,” Rajinikanth told reporters at Chennai airport this morning when asked for his comments on it.
The actor was returning to the Tamil Nadu capital from Varanasi after wrapping up the shoot for an upcoming film. Rajinikanth was also asked about the sexual harassment charges against veteran Tamil film lyricist Vairamuthu by several women, including playback singer Chinmayi Sripaada, to which he said the poet-lyricist had denied the allegations and agreed to follow the law.
Rajinikanth has also supported the Supreme Court’s decision that allows entry of women of all ages to the Sabarimala temple in Kerala but cautioned against interference when it comes to religion and traditions. Regarding the launch of his proposed political party, Rajinikanth said 90 per cent of the work was over and he would make the announcement at the right time.
