After accusing singer Kailash Kher of making a sexually explicit move towards her, singer Sona Mohapatra has also mentioned Anu Malik’s name in the #MeToo post made for women on Instagram. In her post, Sona has revealed that while she has spoken out against Kailash Kher so far, there are many harassers in the industry like him, including Anu Malik.
The Ambar Sariya actress said that she’s not going to talk in detail about other names accused of sexual harassment because she has a life beyond all this. She further added that all she wants currently is that more and more women are able to share their story and call out harassment against them.
Sona wrote, “To all the young girls & women who are coming out with their experiences with this creep, journalists, ‘fans’ & even kids from college, know that you are not alone. This guy, #KailashKher is a serial predator & has been for years as are many others like Anu Malik in the industry. I cannot be tweeting about everyone cus I work 18 hour work days & have a life to live & breathe in. Also, I cannot comment on many others basis hearsay. That would be unfair. (Many journalists have been asking me for stories thinking that I’m most likely to ‘spill the beans’. I’m not). It is important that we stick to facts & our personal experiences to make this a serious & credible movement to help clean a system & lopsided power structure. It is just a start but an important one. #TimesUp #India #Change”.
However, Anu Malik has denied all the allegations made against him by Sona. Talking to News 18, the popular music composer said that he never met Sona and never suggested anything to her. His statement read, “She’s meaning some case that had happened a long time back. It has nothing to do with me. I have never worked with her also. So, I don’t want to comment anything on it. She’s just dragging my name into this. I have not even met her”.
#MeToo is shaping up for good. Share your story!
