Tamil actress Vijayalakshmi who has featured in Vijay’s Friends and Boss Engira Baskaran allegedly tried to die by suicide on Sunday evening. The yesteryear Tamil actor is currently in a Chennai hospital and is reportedly recovering.
On Sunday, Vijayalakshmi shared a video on Facebook claiming social media abuse and bullying as the reason behind her extreme step. In the video she was seen talking about the torture she has been facing by followers of actor-turned-politician Seeman and Hari Nadar. She also mentioned that she has consumed pills that would lead to reduced blood pressure resulting in death.
In the video Vijayalakshmi said, “This is my last video and I have been in tremendous stress in the last four months because of Seeman and his partymen. I tried my level best to survive all these days because of my mother and sister, but I have been humiliated in the media by Harinadar recently.”
She added, “I would like to tell fans who are watching the video just because I was born in Karnataka, Seeman has tortured me a lot. As a woman, I have put up with it to my highest capabilities. I won’t be able handle the pressure anymore. I am from the Pillai community, the same community LTTE leader Prabhakaran is part of. Prabhakaran is the only reason Seeman is who he is today, but now he has been harassing me on social media continuously. You slut shamed me to make me feel the pain and it is up to me to decide on what to do after facing such insults from you. I request my fans not to let Seeman get away from this case. He should never get anticipatory bail. My death should be a big eye-opener to everyone. I don’t want to be a slave to anybody.”
