A few days back, independent filmmaker Leena Manimekalai alleged that director Susi Ganesan harassed her in a moving car. Meeting the media in Chennai, Susi Ganesan said that he is going to file a defamation case against Leena for her false accusation.
“The last few days have been stressful to my family. Kids in the house are consoling me, my wife is shocked and heartbroken by this news. Now, I have decided to move this matter to Court and I’m the first one to take legal action against this false accusation in the #MeToo movement. If proven guilty, I’m ready to accept any punishment that they can also hang me to death but if Leena’s accusation proven to be false, she should at least stay behind the bars for ten days. Such false accusations in the name of feminism and women liberty must be stopped”, said Susi Ganesan.
Susi Ganesan had made films like Thiruttu Payale, Five Star, and Kandhasamy.
