Following her shocking revelation about casting couch in the industry, Varalaxmi has now started ‘Save Shakti’ campaign which will unite all actresses from the southern film industry together against sexual harassment.
“My recent tweet has got a huge response in social networking sites and only then, I came to know that a lot of women are facing the threat. I thought this shouldn’t end up as another tweet and when I consulted my lawyers, they suggested that I approach the state government to establish specialized courts to deal violence happening against women”, said Varalaxmi in her video message.
“There are several unions and yet, nothing specifically for women. A body which also comprises people from outside the industry should be formed so there is a fair handling of grievances raised by women,be it actresses, make-up artists or dancers,” Varalaxmi added.
