Sruthi Hariharan really stirred up the hornet's nest a few days back when she accused veteran actor Arjun Sarja of sexually harassing her in 2015. This shocking allegation has since split the film industry in half with some siding with Sruthi and others with Arjun. Recently, she also filed an official complaint against the actor which had made headlines. The actress had filed an eight-point FIR against the actor which had eventually gone viral on social media. Now, the latest development has come up on that front which is pretty eye-opening, to say the least.
It came to light recently that in Sruthi's complaint where she had accused Arjun of harassment, it is mentioned that she is married. Not only that, but the name of her secret husband has also been disclosed, which is none other than Ram Kumar. This brought up the rumors which were circulating in the Kannada film industry a year or so ago that the actress is actually married in secret. Back then, Sruthi had vehemently denied these reports and had said that she was shocked when she heard about it too. She had also assured that unlike some celebs, there was no need for her to marry in secret and that when she ties the knot, she would let everyone know.
However, with the fact of this secret marriage now out in her complaint, the entire film industry has expressed shock and surprise over the matter. Now, there is a general speculation that since actresses' careers go on a decline post marriage, Sruthi may have chosen to stay mum about it. The actress is yet to comment on the same. Meanwhile, the legal battle between the actress and Arjun is raging on with the latter also filing a defamation case worth Rs 5 Crore on her and accusing her of maligning his image.
For the uninitiated, Sruthi had first revealed that she was subjected to inappropriate touching by Arjun Sarja on the sets of the film 'Nibunan' on the pretext of rehearsing a scene.
