Actress Amala Paul felt humiliated after she was reportedly asked for sexual favours by a businessman, and hence was forced to approach police. Talking to reporters soon after filing a police complaint, Amala said that the man asked for sexual favours and used vulgar language while she was rehearsing for an event in Malaysia, in a dance studio in Chennai.

She said she felt humiliated and shocked. “I decided to approach police because I felt very unsafe,” Amala said, and added: “I’m an independent working woman and I’d like to work free of any disturbances. So many women like me work independently and we all should feel safe and comfortable. The police have taken up the case.”

Having made her Tamil debut in Myna, Amala has worked on projects such as Thaandavam, Thalaivaa and Amma Kanakku. She was briefly married to filmmaker Vijay, with whom she had worked in a few projects. The couple later got separated following some issues. Last seen on screen in Thiruttu Payale 2, Amala will be next seen in Tamil films Bhaskar Oru Rascal and Raatchasan. She also has a couple of Malayalam projects in her kitty.
