Chinmayi is someone in the industry who went through a hard time due to so many issues. Being a main face of south India in initiating MeToo movement, Chinmayi went through a revolution. She recently announced that her membership from the Tamil dubbing union has been terminated. The union’s harsh move against her is widely perceived as a backlash for speaking out against powerful men in the industry.
The core idea of the Me Too campaign is to allow the survivor to speak up, and to listen. This requires a safe space to vent, where support will be unconditional. Sadly, such is not the case in the Tamil Twitterverse.
Chinmayi is an acclaimed dubbing artist and has given the voice for actors Samantha Akkineni and Trisha in many movies. One of the most trending news in recent times online has been the #MeToo movement headed in Tamil Nadu by singer Chinmayi Sripaada. Allegations and reports have been spinning viral all over the internet for the past few days.
At one point Chinmayi stopped talking about the issue and started to concentrate on her career. This award from Behindwoods must have made her very happy.
On receiving the award Chinmayi said “”It is a huge thing to work in a film like 96. Every time I listen to the violin part in 96 it does something to my heart. I believe that the magic of 96 is because of Govind Vasantha.” The first person in the world who is really happy is her husband Rahul ravindran.
Being an excellent support for her during the me too issue Rahul once said “no trolls can stop him from supporting his wife who is looking for a change in the society.”
Now after this award overwhelmed Rahul took twitter to express his emotions. He wrote “I’ve seen my wife win plenty of awards… but none made me more emotional than this one. Because the film is special… the songs are special… but most importantly, the timing is very special… it tells me talent and honesty still mean everything. Thank you”
