Sonu Nigam, in an open letter to media, has indicted eminent Film Journalist Subhash K Jha, of harassing him for his homosexual gratifications. The Singer alleged that the Journalist sent him messages ‘I Love You’, ‘I Miss You’ and spoke utter lewd over phone. The, Do it for me-Take publicity-deal, was in offing. Sonu claims that when he turned down Jha’s plea, the discarded Journo tried it play even by tarnishing his image in media.
In 2001, he proposed me and said that he loves me. He even misbehaved with me after getting drunk but later apologized 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.
Sonu stated that his family was affected by the whole episode and his lenience was pushed to its ceiling limit. He said he understands that homosexuals have right to be themselves in society but so do heterosexuals.
Am I supposed to reciprocate to something that I am not interested in? And do I have to be subjected to this kind of dadagiri for no fault of mine?
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 criticizing me in his articles and his feelings got bitter towards me.
Shah Rukh Khan is also said to have had some issues with Subhash K Jha.
Meanwhile, Subhash K Jha replied to the statement by saying that all statements by Sonu Nigam are false and unsubstantiated and he will sue the Singer for Defamation in court.
