Singer Kailash Kher, who has been accused of sexual harassment by a number of women, recently spoke about the allegations while interacting with the media in Mumbai. As per his convictions, if a person accuses someone of having done something punishable by law, then the concerned person should also file a formal complaint, otherwise the matter would not be deemed as authentic.
Kailash, who was at the music launch of Marathi film Dokyala Shot along with Riteish Deshmukh and Abhijit Panse, had a few months back been accused by singer Sona Mahapatra of inappropriate behaviour. She, however, did not a police complaint against him and instead said that she will ensure he does not repeat what he did with her with any other woman.
In reaction to the allegations, Kailash said, “Everyone has their own thinking. If I accuse someone only by taking that individual’s name over and over again then, nothing will come out of it. If you will take legal recourse against that person, then it becomes another matter altogether. If I tell you that I will not make a complaint against that individual, but still I will accuse him of doing certain criminal activity, then I feel it’s not an authentic complaint.”
When asked what he thought about the allegations that Sona had thrown at him and if he feels they are baseless, Kailash said, “No. I will not decide what is right and what is wrong. I have never accused someone. I am living my life. We are simple human beings and we focus on creating music.”
The accusation that Sona had leveled against Kailash, in a series of tweets, was that when she met him at a cafe for the first, he kept his hands on her thigh and said, “You are so beautiful”. In the tweet, she had gone on to slam Kailash for calling himself ‘simple’ and for saying that he is ‘devoted to music’.
