In yet another stunning development, popular singer Sona Mohapatra has accused singer Kailash Kher of serious sexual misconduct. This is the first time Kher has faced serious allegations from a fellow singer.

Taking to Twitter, Sona 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.”

She continued, ” 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’.”

In her concluding tweet, the Ambarsariya song fame singer wrote, “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.”

Sona, who’s married to musician Ram Sampath, took a dig at Kher’s reported apology for his previous sexual misconduct towards a female journalist. She wrote, “How many women will you apologise to Kailash Kher??? Start now. Will take a lifetime.”

Calling Kher shameless, Sona said, “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.”

Earlier a journalist, identified as Natasha Hemrajani, had alleged that Kher had sexually harassed her when she visited him at his house to take photos as her journalist friend interviewed him.
