New Delhi, June 26 (HS): After the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, the debate on nepotism in Bollywood refuses to die down. Many Bollywood celebs including Sonu Nigam targeted some people in the music industry. Now singer Sona Mahapatra has slammed Sonu Nigam. In a tweet on Friday, Sona wrote …

“Did anyone care that #SonuNigam publicly defended a multiple accused @IndiaMeToo predator Anu Malik & now claims to being in the possession & yet suppressing a video with incriminating evidence of another case? Do we really want the industry to get better? #LetsTalk #India.”

She further tweeted, “This has led to a myopic, short term view of the overall future of growing the industry because that can only happen by nurturing genuine talent of many hues & investing in the stars of tomorrow. Veterans like Sonu could help by being helpful to other upcoming.”

Sona further tweeted, “The gatekeepers, tastemakers of the industry would only benefit by adopting more inclusive practices that welcome diversity. The gender disparity itself is telling, there are no more than 8 odd songs in female voices for every 100 released in the mainstream. This, from the industry that spawned titans like Lata Mangeshkar & Asha Bhosle is sad ?”
