Singer Sona Mohapatra has grabbed headlines in past too for her shocking statements. Now, after accusing singer-composer Kailash Kher of sexual misconduct, she has alleged music composer Anu Malik of sexually harassing her in front of her husband musician Ram Sampath.
Sona has alleged that Anu Malik called her ‘maal’ and used to call her at unearthly hours. Mohapatra told Hindustan Times,
“The first time I met Anu Malik was in October 2006 for the rehearsals of MTV Lycra Style Awards. He invited both Ram and me for lunch at the ITC Grand Maratha, since he had worked with Ram as a youngster. (Malik) didn’t know we were married and the moment I went to the rest room, he made a lewd comment — ‘Kya Maal hai Sampath’.”
She added further that,
“Subsequently, Anu (Malik) used to call up randomly, at strange hours, leave missed calls or once in a while, if I picked up, [he would] awkwardly talk incessantly about strange things. I stopped taking his calls because I felt [there was] no need to tolerate this for the hope of singing a song for him. [It] was in 2007 – 2008. It’s been really long and I just remember feeling awkward and uncomfortable.”
