Chinmayi reveals what Vairamuthu did to her and when

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 • Tamil Comments

Popular singer and dubbing artiste Chinmayi stirred an hornets nest on Monday by publishing an unknown woman's post on her Twitter account accusing legendary lyricist and Tamil scholar Vairamuthu of sexual abuse.  Today she first confirmed that "My account is not hacked. I stand by all the tweets and I believe the victims. I also am not mentally ill. Thanks much" and then went on to relate her personal bad experience with the most respected film personality in Kollywood.

Chinmayi has stated "Year 2005/2006 maybe. Veezhamattom. An album for Srilankan Tamizhs that I had sung in, as had Manikka Vinayagam sir. I dont remember if it was a book or an album release or both now; the performances and launch happened in Switzerland in (Bern / Zurich maybe).  
We sang. We went to Switzerland. We performed. Everyone left. Only my mother and I were asked to stay back.  The organizer(I dont remember his name) asked me to visit Vairamuthu sir in a hotel in Lucerne.  I asked why. He told me to cooperate. I refused. We demanded to be sent back to India. He said ‘You wont have a career!’ My mother and I both put our foot down, career vendam mannum vendam. Demanded an earlier flight to India and came back.  

Thats not all as Chinmayi continues "3, maybe 4 years ago, he had a book release function & asked me to sing Tamizh Thaai vaazhthu. I said I would be unable to. He in turn responded ‘I ll tell (a politician) you spoke ill of him on stage, yelled at me and kept the phone down
I bawled. My parents in law consoled me".  "Then had the courage to call his manager back & told him ‘I ll go and tell the same politician you re lying because I have NEVER given a political speech and HE will trust ME. This for refusing to sing. And you ask why victims dont name him?! To hell with those of you who do." 

On singling out Vairamuthu, Chinmayi asserts "In 17 years not one man in the industry across languages Hindi Tamil Telugu Malayalam Kannada Marathi has misbehaved. Not one man has indecently messaged me or touched me. My work place is mostly clean save for some bad apples. I call Vairamuthu (Sir) out alone and I dare.  The staff at Vairamuthu sir’s office KNOW. His closest confidants know. They are also his enablers. Vairamuthu sir, you KNOW what you did. With due respect your Time is Up.  I dont care if I ever sing or dub in this industry ever. This is my story. And this is the truth.

When her followers question Chinmayi about Vairamuthu's presence at her wedding to actor Rahul Ravindran she has explained " Why we invited Vairamuthu to my wedding? Because I DIDNT TELL RAHUL OR MY INLAWS then. I told them later and they didn’t love me one-bit lessI HAD to invite him because I invited every industry veteran, his other family members; not inviting him would mean having to explain why".
