Papon is back in action. The popular singer faced a major setback last year when he got involved in a sexual assault controversy. Post that, he has been lying low and singing songs but far and few. Now, we hear that he is collaborating with Anu Malik to lend his voice for Ekta Kapoor’s show, Coldd Lassi Aur Chicken Masala’s title track. The web show stars Divyanka Tripathi and Rajeev Khandelwal.

Last week, Anu Malik was spotted jamming at Ekta Kapoor's office for the same. It’s not the first time when Papon will lend his voice for AltBalaji's show. Before this he has sung Laute Nahi for the web series, Broken But Beautiful, starring Vikrant Massey and Harleen Sethi as main leads.

For those who’ve come in late, Papon was a mentor and judge on the show, The Voice India Kids. It was during the show that he got involved in a sexual assault case. Here’s a recap of what had happened. During a Facebook LIVE session for a special Holi episode, Papon was seen putting colours on a 11-year-old girl and later kissing her, which looked more forced. This video went viral in no time and became a big controversy. 

On Feb 24, 2018, the Guwahati police lodged a case against him after a complaint from the Assam State Commission for Protection of Child Rights was filed. However, the parents of the minor denied allegations against Papon and termed his action as “fatherly love”. Papon quit the reality TV show as a judge following the complaint of sexual assault.
