In the wake of MeToo movement, several shocking names came forward for being involved in harassment against women. One of the big names in the music industry was Bollywood composer Anu Malik. The Indian Idol judge was accused of harassment by several female singers and one of them to come forward and take his name was Sona Mohapatra. Recently, Anu Malik took to Twitter to share a post about these accusations stating that they are false and also questioned as to why these allegations surfaced now when he's back on Television. The composer wrote that he has daughters and can't imagine committing such crimes. After his post, Sona Mohapatra lashed out at the composer in a massive twitter note. #MeToo: Anu Malik Finally Speaks Up on the Molestation Charges on Him, to Seek Legal Action Against the Accusers (View Post).

Sona who was one of the few people who called out the makers of the show for bringing Malik back, once again took to Twitter, this time to respond to Malik's tweet.
She tweeted saying, "Anu Malik finally wrote back to all of us last evening. My response to him, next to his letter. In case mine is too long to read, have also attached a shorter, crisper one, one amongst many on my timeline. Thank you @KallolDatta for saying it better. "
