Sona Mahapatra accuses Kailash Kher of sexual misconduct, says he touched her thighs

The #MeToo movement started in Bollywood after actress Tanushree Dutta accused veteran actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment against her. Many Bollywood actors such as Farhan Akhtar, Twinkle Khanna, and Priyanka Chopra lauded Tanushree for her bravery which has paved the way for other celebrities to come up with their bit as well. And as a result of the ongoing #MeToo movement, a lot of renowned artists, whom we never associated with these kinds of misbehavior, are getting exposed.

From Vikas Bahl to Rajat Kapoor, from Abhijeet Bhattacharya to Alok Nath, numerous names have been linked with sexual misconduct and it is a matter of shame. And the latest one to join the list is folk-influenced singer Kailash Kher.

On October 6th, Kailash was held guilty of sexual harassment by Natasha Hemrajani, a female photojournalist. In a series of tweets, Natasha revealed that Kher touched her thigh continuously, when they visited his home in 2006.

And now, fellow singer Sona Mohapatra accused Kailash of making inappropriate sexual advances towards her. Sona narrated one of the incidents at a Cafe in Mumbai where he met Kailash to discuss an upcoming concert where both their bands were supposed to perform. She wrote:

“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.”

Sona further alleged that Kailash continued to disturb her even after leaving the cafe. According to the 42-year-old, he kept on calling her after she landed in Dhaka for the concert. When she ignored his calls, Kailash somehow reached her through the organisers, asking her to skip the soundcheck and meet him in his room.

Not only this but Sona Mohapatra thrashed Kailash Kher for calling himself ‘simple and devoted to music’.

“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”

On Monday, an unnamed female journalist, in a series of tweets, alleged that Kailash Kher sat between two women on an occasion and kept putting his hand on their thighs.

According to News18, they reached out to Kailash Kher for his comments on the situation but he did not respond. However, Kailash said in a statement to IANS:

“For all those who know me and have come across me, will know how much I respect humanity, especially women, even more for the ones who work in media since their work is difficult.”

We are literally shocked by the number of cases of sexual harassment coming out and it is a matter of great concern for the whole nation to say the least.
