Singer Sona Mohapatra criticizes Sony TV and Indian Idol makers for considering Anu Malik to judge the upcoming season of the singing reality show. She expressed her disbelief in a series of tweets.
“This is the depraved man who rubs himself, threatens, drops his pants, forces someone’s head into his crotch & then repeats replay. This is the man @SonyTV @SonyTVUSA @sonytvuk hires back for the nth time on Indian Idol as a judge?”
उन्होंने भारत में युवा महिलाओं के साथ बलात्कार के मामले में सख्त कार्रवाई नहीं करने के लिए नरेंद्र मोदी सरकार की आलोचना की।
Calling out Vishal for co-operating with Anu, Sona wrote, “& since you do care about the pain of Indian women & girls, Vishal, take a real stand, stand up & walk your talk. Multiple women spoke up about Anu Malik in @IndiaMeToo & some were minors during the incident. No amount of money or fame is worth this. #MeToo.”
In another twit she slammed the makers of the show and sony tv, she wrote
“New York-based Danica D’Souza stated that Anu Malik’s violent behavior shoots Indian Idol and that ‘would be a common thing during the high-ups” were aware of it, but chose to turn a blind eye. (According to reports, this spoiler has been re-implemented by @sonytv?). “
However, to everyone’s surprise, Anu Malik is reportedly approached to be a judge on Indian Idol 11. He will be joining Vishal Dadlani and Neha Kakkar, expected to return as judges on the show, that.
