Sona Mohapatra who was very active and was seen calling out on people during the #MeToo wave was recently seen questioning Sachin Tendulkar if he was aware the music composer Anu Malik was accused during the MeToo movement as he was brought back as a judge on “Indian Idol” this season by Sony TV.
She tweeted, “Dear Sachin, Are you aware of all the @IndiaMeToo stories of multiple women, some minors who came forward in the public domain about Anu Malik, the judge in this same Indian Idol show last year including their own ex-producer? Does their trauma not matter or touch anyone?”
She further in another tweet continued, “Yes, the context is actually missing, for U. A powerful conglomerate like Sony TV is trying to divert the shameful reinstating of a multiple accused sexual offender, Anu Malik as a judge on #IndianIdol by publicizing @sachin_rt & @anandmahindra’s praise & riding on their goodwill.”
Sona took the liberty to call out Sachin after he shared a post in which he praised several “Indian Idol” contestants of this season and he also stated that he was moved by the performances of Chelsi, Divas, Rahul and Sunny and their backstory. Sachin tweeted, “Really touched by the soulful singing & life-stories of these talented youngsters on Indian Idol. Rahul, Chelsi, Diwas, and Sunny come from different parts of the country but have the same passion & dedication for music despite all odds. I’m sure they’ll go a long way.”
Sona was seen leading the protest against Anu Malik’s as a judge on “Indian Idol” ever since the judges for the current season were announced. Not only that but even last year Sona with other singers such as Shweta Pandit and Neha Bhasin was also seen leveling allegations of sexual harassment against Anu Malik. After Sona’s stan, various other women came forward and blamed Anu Malik for improper conduct. Only then Sony TV took the decision to drop the composer as a judge from 2018’s season 10. But now with his reinstatement, this season and Sachin Tendulkar praising the show, lead to Sona Mohapatra questioning Sachin. Sachin is yet to comment on the same.
