"There is a little girl involved, whose identity is not masked in any way. Both our families are being destroyed forever, just by people jumping to conclusions”.
After being accused of forcefully kissing a minor from his reality show Voice India Kids 2, Papon has recently issued a statement regarding the whole issue.
In the statement, unapologetically, Papon wrote,
“Anyone who knows me would be aware that I am an extremely affectional and expressive person. To show affection for an 11-yr-old child who I have been mentoring for a while now is not an alien concept for me”.
Alarmingly, trying to play as the victim in the incident, Papon says that he has a
“loving wife of over 14 years and two young children. There is a little girl involved, whose identity is not masked in any way. Both our families are being destroyed forever, just by people jumping to conclusions”.
Papon claims that it was actually the “faulty camera angles and an accidental move and not a sexual assault as being reported”.
Apart from Papon the minor girl’s father also rubbished the allegations against the singer. He said, “Papon sir is a mentor and a father figure to my daughter and has always encouraged her to pursue her dreams. He doesn’t differentiate amongst the children who are here and gives them equal guidance on pursuing their dreams. What you saw in the video is not intentional. It was just a moment of affection that is being portrayed otherwise. I would request and urge the media to not pursue this further.”
Well, now we wonder what new turns will this case take.
