Meanwhile, this is not the first time, Sona Mohapatra has been vocal about the same. Back in 2019, she wrote an open letter to Anu Malik. An excerpt from the same read, “Why should we diesel up now that you are on TV you said? Well, you have no right to be platformed on National TV till you make amends. 1.3 billion people exist in India. Not everyone needs to make crores on TV to survive or be ‘judge’ to young people whose safety they jeopardise. You aren’t a role model. You could always take a break, go to a s*x rehab or counselling or somewhere to reflect on how to behave better.”
