Supporting another Twitter user's allegations against Kher, Mohapatra took to Twitter to share her #metoo story
Mumbai: The Indian #metoo movement is gaining momentum with scores of new allegations coming to light on social media. Singer Kailash Kher was recently accused of sexual misconduct by a fan who alleged he sent her lewd texts on Whatsapp. Inspired by that, singer Sona Mohapatra also shared her sexual harassment story on Twitter when Kher allegedly place his hand on her thigh during a meeting and how things progressed.
(1) I met Kailash for coffee in Prithvi Café 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) https://t.co/Cfz8Hf4sdP— SONA (@sonamohapatra) October 9, 2018
(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’ https://t.co/beBehXBLup— SONA (@sonamohapatra) October 9, 2018
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 https://t.co/GLHvCsIPDR— SONA (@sonamohapatra) October 9, 2018
How many women will you apologise to Kailash Kher??? Start now. Will take a lifetime. (4) 🤘🏾🔴 https://t.co/yZimwUshoE— SONA (@sonamohapatra) October 9, 2018
She also wrote urging other victims to come forward against the Teri Deewani singer, "The shamelessness of this man. To call himself ‘simple’, ‘devoted to music’ & even claiming amnesia. If this chap could dare try this stunt with me, it’s a disease that he has & I can vouch for not only these two women’s stories but hundreds more he would’ve have preyed on."
