“He replied “No, we can meet for other things in hotel” directly to me. When I said this to my friends, they asked whether I stayed silent. Usually, I would have slapped the person who asked me such thing. But this time, I thought, I’m a woman from a strong background and realized how many women he would have approached in the same way. I asked him to leave the place immediately and he left saying “You are in a bad mood I guess, we well talk later” and I was like who is guy is”

“I was thinking about that approach for 8 long days without saying anything to others” the actress said. Earlier, in an interview with News 18 Tamilnadu, Varalakshmi Sarathkumar said that she faced all these problems in her career and she learnt to say “no”. “It is a choice they are making. I have faced all these stories but I have learnt to say “no”. Knowing that I am a daughter of Sarathkumar, it is happening. I have heard recorded phone calls in which they will say that I won’t cooperate with their requirements” said Varalakshmi in the interaction.
“They said that a heroine should sleep with Hero and producer. I don’t want an opportunity like that. I have learnt to say “no”. Yes I accept that it got delayed for me to grow in my career. Lot of people didn’t accept me to act in their films just because I was too correct. But That’s fine. Now I have completed 25 films. I worked with 25 best producers and with 25 best directors. I am signing my 29th film next. So I am happy” said Varalakshmi Sarathkumar.
“Many are accepting the offer and complaining about it later. You don’t have to bring the person’s name out. But say “no” and walk out. That is my point. No point in complaining about it after doing what they required from you.” she added.
