After Sona Mohapatra, Jag Ghoomiya singer Neha Bhasin too had come forward to accuse Anu Malik of touching her inappropriately at the age of 21. Neha on Twitter had written, “We do live in a very sexist world. Anu Malik is a predator, I too have run away from his strange moves when I was 21. I didn't let myself get into a sticky situation beyond him lying on a sofa in front of me talking about my eyes in a studio. I fleed lying.”
Just a few days back, the show was in the news when Sona, who’s known for her unfiltered opinion, had slammed the channel for using the video of Neha’s kissing incident by a fan for their commercial purposes.
