Didn't think about my music career before sharing #MeToo story, says Sona Mohapatra!
Well-known singer Sona Mohapatra, who accused singers Kailash Kher and Anu Malik of sexual misconduct, tells she didn't think about how sharing her #MeToo story will impact her music career because it was for the greater cause of a better future for the country.
Recently, Sona chatted with the media at a press conference for a singing reality show "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa" along with her co-judges Wajid Khan, Shekhar Ravjiani.
When asked about taking legal recourse for the matter like some other women have taken in their respective cases, she revealed, "The truth is that the ongoing campaign has got collective voice. This movement is happening all around the country. Along with the women, there are good men as well who want to see the change in the society. So, I am not the only one who is speaking about it. I think anyone, including the media, can file a complaint against these kinds of cases because nobody needs to be a bystander in this issue. A lot of people have found the courage to talk about their experience after I shared my story on social media."
About her music career after sharing her Me Too Story, Sona revealed "I appreciate Zee TV and 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' who gave opportunity to outspoken individual like me to judge their show because when I shared my story, I didn't think about how it will impact my singing or my musical career as it was for the bigger cause of a better future for the country. We all want that our country should move towards a positive direction and the garbage gets thrown out of the system and society. We are looking forward to such kind of evenings where we will have genuine celebrations and I think we are all counting on better days."
