It appears a war of words has started between singers Sonu Nigam and Sona Mohapatra after the former defended singer Anu Malik, who had been accused of sexual harassment by the latter. Sonu had at an event said that no proof was provided by the person who accused Anu, and that it only tarnished his name. Sona said that she felt let down upon hearing him say what he had.

Sonu, who had totally defended Anu over the accusations, even said that the people who had pointed fingers at the latter are getting all the respect, while the accused is losing his bread and butter.

“If I say that you misbehaved with me, you will ask me for proof. But there’s no proof, right? Despite that, people are respecting the accusers, who are tarnishing Anu Malik’s name. But how can you ban him? How can you snatch his bread and butter? How can you torture his family?” Sonu had asked.

Sona lashed back at Sonu through a good number of tweets, stating that it was not only she but many other women who have accused Anu of behaving inappropriately.

Sonu responded to her tweets by saying, “The respectable lady vomiting on Twitter, is the wife of someone who I consider very close to me, so although she has forgotten the relationship, I’d like to maintain the decorum.”

In reply, Sona posted some more tweets in which she lambasted Sonu for calling her somebody’s wife and for referring to her stand on #MeToo as vomiting.

Anu Malik is yet to speak out on the accusations, and according to Sonu, if the former had wanted to say anything, he could have said a lot, but he did not.
