Sona Mohapatra was one of the few singers that lent her support to the #MeToo movement when music composer Anu Malik was accused of sexual harassment by many. She took to Twitter to express her disappointment at fellow singer Sonu Nigam as he is supporting Malik.
Mohapatra wrote, (@sonamohapatra), “1)Not 1 but possibly 100+ women & MEN can attest to Anu Malik’s deplorable abusive behaviour. 2)I guess Mr. Sonu Nigam expects all these women/underage girls to – a)strap recording devices b)carry spy cams,other proof gathering devices cus they have much to benefit defaming him? I always found Sonu Nigam to be brighter than most of his peers, intelligent, so talented, excellent at his craft & yes, kind too. Feel so let down hearing him talk like this & choose the dark side to side up with. I’m hoping he realises how sad this is.”
