"That did not deter though. On landing in and on my way to the venue with the organisers, keeps calling me and when I don't pick up, calls the organisers phone to get through to me and asks me to 'skip' the soundcheck and join him in his room instead to 'catch up'," Mohapatra wrote.

"The fact that Kailash had sung in my studios and for many projects in which I was the producer and 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" she said in another tweet.

She said Kher should not describe himself as a "simple" person who is "devoted to music".

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

Kher was unavailable for a response when reached out.
