Reacting to a news piece which highlighted AR Rahman's plight after a recent interview, Sona Mohapatra also took to Twitter to reveal how husband Ram Sampath was targeted by an ‘illiterate self-important’ gang which pushed him into depression. For the unversed, AR Rahman sent shockwaves when he revealed, "I don’t say no to good movies, but I think there is a gang, which, due to misunderstandings, is spreading some false rumours."  

Now, musician Sona Mohapatra who doesn't mince her words and speaks her mind, took to Twitter and in a series of tweets revealed how her husband Ram Sampath also faced the wrath of certain bigwigs in Bollywood. "This ‘illiterate self-important’ gang works against any genuine,classy,dignified,talented creative professional.Felt  heartbroken seeing Ram Sampath go through hell,worse,finally plug out of this toxic biotope 3 years ago.The final straw was #Raees .Took him 2yrs to recover post," Sona tweeted. 

She further took a dig at Farhan Akhtar and Sonakshi Sinha as she called them 'musical greats'. When asked by a fan as to why are Indian musicians not allowed to perform their own songs. 

Sona tweeted, "not just the low-brow film awards,even in music concerts headlining big international acts, stage is shared by musical greats like Sonakshi Sinha, Farhan Akhtar. The latter also ‘performs’ for the #CokeStudio on ground gigs,women’s orgs, commonwealth games.This is on you #India." 

Adding, "But plug out we must. Ram dealt with his depression & deep disappointment by blocking many of these bullies from his life & phone register,taking up martial arts,working with,archiving folk & classical musicians in our studio,finding solace in music,writing scripts. #MentalHealth."

If AR Rehman said so, we definitely believe it because he is a man of honour unlike many people saying there is gang working in Bollywood but why nobody takes any name...if you fight, fight with all the guns ablazing... Blaming bollywood and not reveling any names is not a fighting spirit.

Our country needs reforms as a society. We, as a society have failed. Acceptance of problem is first step to deal with it. Our media is equally responsible as some star children get more attention than the talented and worthy actors.

Scheming and conspiracy is a felony under law. It took scheming and conspiracy across different legal entities (production houses had to conspire) to keep him away from work

Nepotism might be common across industries. A private company can refuse to work with artist X. But ganging up against someone and two or more production conspiring to keep someone out of work - this is criminal conspiracy and scheming, which is covered by law as afello

Sad reality,I guess this needs to be taken seriously, surely CBI should take bollywood mafia as a case and get all the truth out, this is so unfair for many talented artists that they can not shine or given a chance because they have no connections.. so difficult to survive, so sure there is a big racket, gang who do not allow outsiders to do anything.
