Sona Mohapatra is enraged and furious for right reasons. The singer who's always targeted for speaking her mind and standing up against the wrong has now written an open letter to Sony Television for reinstating Anu Malik as their Indian Idol 11
judge. The music composer was one of the many accused in the #MeToo wave that had hit Bollywood industry last year. While Malik was temporarily sidelined from all his appearances and humiliated for a couple of days, he's back as a co-judge of this new season with Neha Kakkar and Vishal Dadlani.

Sona, if no one else, is quite shaken after hearing Bhasin's story and has slammed Sony TV, Sonu Nigam, Vishal Dadlani, Neha Kakkar and others for not taking a stand and supporting the accused instead. She has called out the producers for having double standards of extending their support in the west but not giving a damn about the same in the east. #MeToo: Singer Neha Bhasin Calls Indian Idol Judge Anu Malik A 'Predator', Alleges He Made A Move On Her When She Was 21 (Read Full Story)
