Sona Mohapatra has been single-handedly fighting against Me Too accused Anu Malik’s removal from the ‘Indian Idol’ show. The singer has now slammed the Sony TV channel for ‘using the theme of sexual harassment for promotion and commercial gain’. Sona was talking about the viral video clip in which a contestant forcibly kissed ‘Indian Idol 11‘ judge Neha Kakkar.

Mohapatra states that the channel used that clip for promoting their show.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Sona said that using the theme of ‘sexual harassment’ for promotion & commercial gain is an all-time low. “Using the theme of ‘sexual harassment’ for promotion & commercial gain is an all-time low & in a country where women have very little agency & choice, it is especially disgusting. I’m dead sure people in the Sony TV team have clinked glasses, gotten promotions & laughed at the whole country while taking the audience for a jolly ride. Sickening, inhuman promo strategy, corporate ethics or responsibility etc be damned off course. Evil corporations do exist clearly & not just in books & cinema (sic), ” she wrote.

She even called out Vishal Dadlani for being a part of this ‘sickness’. “How much money is worth being part of this deathly swamp,” She asked Dadlani.

We wonder what Neha Kakkar and Vishal have to say about being a part of this ‘sickness’, as accused by Mohapatra. A few days back, actress Tanushree Dutta had slammed Neha for not filing any charges against the contestant who forcibly kissed her on the show.
