Rapper, singer and actor Hard Kaur a.k.a. Taran Kaur Dhillion took to her social media handle and shared some disturbing pictures of physical assault from 2017.
She captioned as: "2017 - HE ATTACKED ME FROM THE BACK. THE TRUTH ABOUT THE INDIAN MUSIC INDUSTRY. JUST BECAUSE I WAS MAKING THE MIXTAPE. JUST BECAUSE I'M LOUD JUST BECAUSE I DRINK JUST BECAUSE I STAND FOR OTHER ARTISTS. WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN. I DON'T WANT TO TELL U WHO DID IT SO DON'T ASK PLEASE. @theconsocius @voice_against_fascism" [sic]
Fans urged Hard Kaur to reveal the name but then Mo Joshi's name started doing the rounds in the comments section.
And hours later, Mo Joshi took to his Instagram account to release a clarification on the accusation Hard Kaur had made.
He wrote: "The incident with Ms Kaur happened at an event that I was jointly promoting with Lucid Entertainment and Desi Hip Hop Inc (who I was working for at the time) as part of the ADE event series that was happening in Mumbai. The artists on the line-up were Prabh Deep, Sez On The Beat, Sun J, Big Deal, DJ Panic, Swadesi, Yung Raj and DJ Uri at Kaitlyn's Beer Garden, Hill Road, Bandra on 26th February 2017. Ms Kaur was put on the guest list on Big Deal's request and from the point that she showed up, was constantly involved in heckling the artists while they were performing as well as aggressive behaviour towards other artists and attendees."
He concluded by saying he is open to investigation because he didn't strike Hard Kaur. He said: "This is the extent of our interaction that night. I did not strike her in any way as multiple witnesses present at the show will attest too. After this, the venue manager came to me and told me that there were cops from Bandra Police Station at the venue at her behest as she was trying to file an assault case against me. The police investigated the incident, and after speaking to multiple witnesses, concluded that no such assault had occurred, and refused to file her FIR. I'm open to this incident being investigated again by the police or any other committee and would welcome their involvement in this."
