Indian Idol 12: Singer Sona Mohapatra takes a dig at judge Anu Malik, says 'trash loves trash'

Indian Idol Season 12 has been making headlines ever since it premiered for all the wrong reasons. While the show has always been one of the most loved, this season opened a can of accusations against the makers. The contestants too were at the receiving end this season as guest singers hinted at them being forced to praise performances. Recently, contestant Shanmukhapriya was trolled after lyricist Javed Akhtar praised her singing. Singer Anu Malik was recently trolled after he returned to Indian Idol 12 as a judge.

Netizens tweeted their objection on social media and joining the bandwagon is singer Sona Mohapatra. Sona has always been someone who has been vocal for the cause and she shared a tweet that objected to Anu Malik’s return to Indian Idol despite Me Too allegations against him. The tweet read, “#Indiaidol #sonytv seems like #AnuMalik has been absolved of the #metoo allegations. @sonamohapatra. He is firmly in #judge seat since the past few weeks (sic).” To this, Sona shared, “trash loves trash,” indirectly taking a dig at both Anu Malik and the reality show.

It can be remembered that Anu Malik was accused of sexual harassment during the Me Too movement following which he had stepped down as judge from the season. Vishal Dadlani had then stepped in and now after he quit the show, Anu was called back.

Speaking of Indian Idol 12, veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha and his wife Poonam Sinha will be seen gracing the show this week. The actor will also sing for his wife, as per the reports.

Indian Idol 12 has been losing its spot on the TRP charts following the number of controversies associated with it.
