Singer Chinmayi Sripada has finally made a comeback after a long hiatus. Soon after the trailer of Thalapathy Vijay's Leo was unveiled by the makers, Chinmayi revealed that she has dubbed for actress Trisha Krishnan's character in the film. Taking to her official X account, the singer also thanked the makers of Leo for giving her the opportunity.
For those unversed, Chinmayi had accused Tamil lyricist Vairamuthu of sexual harassment as a part of the Me Too movement in India in 2018. The singer had alleged that he made sexual advances on her when she was recording a song. However, she later stated that she was 'banned' by the Tamil film industry.
"I am a million times grateful to Mr Lokesh Kanagaraj and Mr Lalit for having taken this stand. THAT. IS. MY. VOICE. IN. LEO. FOR. TRISHA. And guess what? I have dubbed in Tamil, Telugu AND Kannada," Chinmayi wrote on social media.
