"I met Kailash for coffee in Prithvi Café to discuss a forthcoming concert where both our bands were playing," she narrated. During their chat, he allegedly put a hand on her thigh and said things like, "You're so beautiful" and "I feel so good that a 'musician (Ram Sampath) got you' and not an actor". She left soon after.

She narrated, "On landing in Dhaka & on my way to the venue with the organisers, keeps calling me & when I don't pick up, calls the organisers phone to get through to me & asks me to 'skip' the soundcheck & join him in his room instead to 'catch up'. (sic)"

"The fact that Kailash had sung in my studios & for many projects in which I was the producer & knew me to be as strong as i am or that he had only recently taken a favour from my partner @RamSampathLive to create a personal track for him didn't stop him. #TheHubris of such #men," Sona wrote.

She added that it would "take a lifetime" for him to apologise to all the women he has misbehaved with. "The shamelessness of this man. To call himself 'simple', 'devoted to music' & even claiming amnesia. If this chap could dare try this stunt with me, it's a disease that he has & I can vouch for not only these two women's stories but hundreds more he would've have preyed on," she wrote.
