After Tanushree Dutta revealed about the harassment she faced on the sets of the 2008 film, Horn Ok Pleasss, many women from the industry have come forward and revealed their #MeToo story.
Yesterday, we reported to you about 90's famous show, Tara's writer Vinta Nanda's accusations on Alok Nath. She has alleged that he raped her in the 90's.
This morning, singer Sona Mohapatra in a series of tweets has accused Kailash Kher of sexual misconduct. She lashed out at him and narrated the incidents where Kher behaved inappropriately with her.
Sona Mohapatra posted in response to Simran's tweet that read: "Here I write my #MeToo story- and I name Kailash Kher. Guess what his profile bio says- Adiyal bairagi hu, ziddi anuragi hu. How poetic right? I will show you what it means- "I am a stubborn recluse, a stubborn lover" I wish I knew what this meant much earlier!"
Here's what Sona tweeted:
"(1) I met Kailash for coffee in Prithvi Caf to discuss a forthcoming concert where both our bands were playing & after the usual, a hand on my thigh with lines likes, your so beautiful, feel so good that a 'musician got you' (Ram) not an actor. I left not soon after. (1)
(2) That did not deter Kailash Kher though. On landing in Dhaka & on my way to the venue with the organisers, keeps calling me & when I don't pick up, calls the organisers phone to get through to me & asks me to 'skip' the soundcheck & join him in his room instead to 'catch up'
He continued to make advances when they landed in Dhaka and kept calling her repeatedly. When she did not answer, he called the organisers to ask Sona to go to his room to 'catch up' and skip the sound check."
3)The fact that Kailash had sung in my studios & for many projects in which I was the producer & knew me to be as strong as i am or that he had only recently taken a favour from my partner @RamSampathLive to create a personal track for him didn't stop him. #TheHubris of such #men
