#WeWantChinmayiBack: Fans Lend Their Support After Chinmayi OPENS UP About Her Ban On Social Media!

Time for justice!

Chimayi Sripada has been a part of the South Indian Film Industry for over a decade now. She has given various unforgettable melodies and has dubbed for all top actresses in the industry. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, the singer shared her story because of which she faced a lot of backlash from the Tamil industry. In a recent interaction with her fans, she sang some of her songs and spoke a few lines which she had dubbed for in her movies. Her fans wanted her back in the industry for which they started trending a hashtag named #WeWantChinmayiBack.


 Chinmayi had called out actor Radha Ravi during the #MeToo movement. Radha Ravi, being the president of South Indian Cine, Television Artistes and Dubbing Artistes Union, blacklisted Chinmayi’s name. She was banned from dubbing in Tamil. She added that despite the court staying the dubbing union’s decision to remove her, on the charge that she had failed to pay her membership fees, the body was still preventing her from working in the industry.The artist recently connected with her fans on Twitter’s new feature, ‘Spaces’, where she sang many songs and made her audience feel nostalgic with some dialogues she had dubbed in movies.. Chinmayi also thanked director PS Mithran, who, she noted, had chosen to ignore the unofficial diktat and roped her in to dub, for Kalyani Priyadarshan’s character in Hero, during the last couple of years.After listening to the dialogues, her fans wanted her to get back into the industry and  have begun to trend the hashtag #WeWantChinmayiBack to ensure that the singer gets opportunities to dub for films.


Chinmayi has always been vocal about some issues in the industry and in the world ever since #MeToo movement entered India. She has also helped many tell their stories. The artist has proven her versatility with the various genres she has sung and her knowledge of languages has always blown people away. She has remained a popular singer in Tamil, Telugu and the Hindi industry. She still continues to be a singer in all industries but remains a dubbing artist only in the Telugu industry. Hope the new hashtag helps get her justice.
