Bollywood singer Anu Malik was accused of sexual harassment by several women during the #MeToo movement that took India by storm and successfully managed to grab the attention of everyone last year. In regards to the allegations of sexual misconduct against the musician, singer Sona Mohapatra even backed the claims of Shweta Pandit and others who had made claims and accusations.
In a recent interview, Anu Malik spoke about how it was unfortunate for him as he all of a sudden had no work in the industry for "no rhyme or reason". Talking about being unaware of the entire situation, he said how he woke up one day suddenly and had no work on his plate. Regrettably, his comment did not sit well with the popular singer Sona Mohapatra. Taking to her social media handle, Sona listed down the old interviews of women who accused Anu Malik of sexual harassment and went on to share a series of posts. Sona wrote, “Anu Malik, these were the reasons, rhyme you go figure.” She then proceeded to attach quotes from Shweta Pandit and others who had made allegations of sexual misconduct against the musician earlier this year. “One more ‘reason’ & the number of them is quite large Mr. Anu Malik. Do take note, producers of @superstarsinge @SonyLIV, your show hosting him is supposed to be aimed at kids between 2 & 15 yrs? Singer Shweta Pandit calls Anu Malik a pedophile.”
Anu Malik, these were the reasons, rhyme you go figure.

Claiming that Anu even misbehaved with children, Sona had tweeted last year, “To all the young girls and women who are coming out with their experiences with this creep, journalists, ‘fans’ and even kids from college, know that you are not alone. This guy, #KailashKher is a serial predator and has been for years as are many others like Anu Malik in the industry. I cannot be tweeting about everyone cus I work 18 hour work days & have a life to live & breathe in.”
