Recently, in the wake of #MeToo movement, Kailash Kher was called out because of his inappropriate behaviour by the singer Sona Mohapatra. She now demands him to be removed out of Delhi governments Mayur Utsav.
To garner support, She even started a petition named change.org petition #WhyKailashKher. She penned, “I am shocked to learn that Kailash Kher has been asked to headline a performance at the Delhi Government’s Mayur Utsav that begins today.”
Sona wanted to extend the support of #MeToo movement by urging Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to cancel Kailash’s participation. She even said, “Dear Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party and Arvind Kejriwal, multiple women including minors have come out in the public with their #MeToo stories against this predator Kailash Kher and you choose to rub this kind of insult to injury? Do you care so little for 50 per cent of your population?”
