The month of March saw one of the biggest scandals to have shaken up Kollywood thus far.
RJ and singer Suchitra's Twitter handle went on a rampage, leaking intimate videos and pictures supposedly of Kollywood celebrities. The person tweeting from the handle also made allegations of the 'casting couch' in Kollywood and targeted a group of people.
After all the noise died down, Suchitra disappeared from social media, leading to more conspiracy theories. However, her husband Karthik Kumar put up a video on Facebook recently in which he cracks a joke that his next comedy routine would be about Suchi Leaks, as the tweets were called. The couple is supposedly in the US.
Reacting to the video, a furious industry insider told TNM that this was unacceptable. "How dare they make a joke out of this situation?" the person asked.
More questions are now being raised about the controversy as there's no clear picture as yet about what really happened.
The tweets from Suchitra's handle had been sounding strange for a while even before the controversy broke out. While her husband standup comedian, Karthik Kumar initially put out a clarification that the allegations had no basis in reality and that the issue was "something different", the couple later claimed that her account had been hacked.
However, even though they said that the account had been reclaimed, the intimate videos and pictures which were tweeted from it, came later. Once again, they said that the account had been hacked, with Suchitra alleging that a certain translation company was behind it.
In between the ruckus, Karthik Kumar put up another video, asking for understanding from everyone - which seemed to corroborate reports that Suchitra was unwell. Further, there were also rumours that the couple had filed for a divorce and that Suchitra was going to the UK with her sister.
However, Karthik Kumar's latest video seems to suggest that all is well. But for those affected by the scandal, the wounds are still raw.
