Malayalam actress Amala Paul has filed a police complaint in Chennai after a businessman there propositioned her. The actress herself confirmed the news. She said that she felt humiliated after she was asked for sexual favours by a businessman stationed in Malaysia when she was rehearsing for a show.
She said that she was forced to approach police. The police have confirmed that they have received a complaint.
Talking to reporters soon after filing a police complaint, Amala said that the man asked for sexual favours and used vulgar language while she was rehearsing for an event in Malaysia, in a dance studio in Chennai. “I decided to approach police because I felt very unsafe. I’m an independent working woman and I’d like to work free of any disturbances. So many women like me work independently and we all should feel safe and comfortable. The police have taken up the case,” Amala Paul said.
The police are yet to detain the suspect.
