Sonu Nigam was sexually harassed?
Sonu Nigam has accused a leading film journo of allegedly sending obscene SMS in which he has his expressed his love for the versatile singer.
Talking to a leading news channel Sonu said “He used to harass me with his homosexual desires to an extent that my family was affected. We all know that the film industry consists of many gays and homosexuals.
Even I have many gay friends but they have never tried to come close to me because they know that I am not interested in it. But in this case, he used to send me weird messages and talk nonsense on the phone.”
“In 2001, he proposed me and said that he loves me. He even misbehaved with me after getting drunk but later apologised in the morning. I even told him that you are Lataji’s friend and elder to me so please don’t talk such things with me as I’m not gay.
But he still continued harassing me with his calls. I’m not a fool that I don’t understand his intentions. I’m not a villager that I don’t know whatever is happening. I even told him about my girlfriends but slowly and slowly when he did not get any positive response from my end, he started criticising me in his articles and his feelings got bitter towards me.”
When asked about his last text message, Sonu said, “He messaged me 3 months back and stated that he missed me. He also wrote that he was impressed with my audacity on which I asked him to meet me if he wants to see my audacity.
The way he wrote was sexual harassment. People in our country should know that such things also happen here. A man can also bother another man like this. I just want him to stop bothering me. He is gay, I have no problems, it’s his life but I’m not like him and he should stay away from me.”
After Sonu’s confessions various Bollywood celebrities including Ismail Durbar and Abhijeet have joined the journo bashing club as well. The journalist, however, has denied all the charges and thinking of filing a defamation suit against Sonu. (With Agency Inputs)
