A few days before, still photographer named Pretika Menon posted a shocking sexual harassment allegation against the popular producer and actor Thiagarajan, dad of actor Prashanth. According to Pretika, Thiagarajan tried to misbehave with her on the sets of Ponnar Shankar.
To add more clarity on this issue, Thiagarajan met the media and denied the allegations against him. “The shoot of Ponnar Shankar was held at Ranjankodi and not in Coimbatore as the girl claims. Pretika was just an apprentice photographer and as soon as she suffered from cold, we sent her back. In fact, Prashanth had arranged her a car and she took the working still pictures with her”, said Thiagarajan.
“#MeToo is a good movement but people like this girl are misusing it. I’m going to file a defamation case against her and currently searching for her address”, added Thiagarajan who was last seen in Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
Meanwhile, Pretika has deactivated her Facebook page and it raises a lot of doubts about the authenticity of her allegations.
