Singer Toshi Sabri on Saturday broke his silence on MeToo allegations levelled by singer Varsha Singh Dhanoa, who had accused him of sexual harassment on 17 October. Denying allegations, Toshi wrote, “Legal step already been taken and video varsha Singh with evidence is releasing soon.”
While releasing his statement, Toshi tagged Janta Ka Reporter on the microblogging site. He wrote, “I am deeply saddened and disturbed by the maliciously fabricated allegations, which are diabolically and viciously spreading using social media. Mrs Varsha Singh with her underlying agenda and with her vested interests she is spreading frivolous and scandalous story through an online post and social medium.”
The statement further added, “At the outset, I state that no such incidence has ever happened and I have sufficient evidence to prove my innocence. My legal team as per the law have responded to the allegation and soon I will bring all the evidence in public domain to show how I have been framed with hidden agenda under #MeToo campaign.”

He also thanked film critic Kamal R Khan for supporting him and producing the video evidence against the sexual harassment allegations. He, however, said that the video ‘evidence’ will be released soon.
In her allegations, Varsha had said that Toshi molested her in an inebriated condition when he called her to his studio to record a song. “We were in his car & I asked him (Music Director Toshi) when are we going to record. He told me that we’ll go upstairs shortly & then record. He pulled out a bottle & started to drink in the car. He touched my thighs, I told him it’s totally incorrect.”
She had also accused Kailash Kher of sexual harassment and demanded the withdrawal of his Padma honours, conferred to him for his contribution to the field of music.
