MLA Mukesh caught in #MeToo

Thiruvananthapuram: Malayalam actor-turned MLA Mukesh has been accused by a woman casting director of Bollywood of harassing her in 1999 during shooting of a

television show.

As the #MeToo campaign gains momentum in the country, Tess Joseph Tuesday took to Twitter to share the harrowing experiences she had to undergo from the ‘Godfather’ actor while he was hosting the quiz programme ‘Koteeswaran’.

An MLA of the ruling CPI(M) and the host of several popular TV shows, Mukesh, however, rejected the charges and said he did not even remember the shooting of the programme.

She alleged that Mukesh had called her room multiple times during the shooting of the TV show and changed her room to beside his at the hotel where they had stayed.

Tess also thanked her then boss Derek O’Brien who had helped her escape the harassment.

Tess also came out against the staff of the five star hotel where she had stayed during the TV shoot, for changing her room as Mukesh asked for it.

Asked about the charge, Mukesh laughed it off and said he did not even remember either the shooting days or Tess.

Known for his comedy and supporting roles in several blockbuster Malayalam films in the last three decades, the actor, however, was not ready to say anything further.
