ODIA SINGER AND MUSIC COMPOSER SONA MOHAPATRA QUESTIONED OVER THE PRESENTATION OF SONG ‘RANGABATI’ BY BOLLYWOOD SINGER SHANKAR MAHADEVAN DURING OPENING CEREMONY OF AAC AT KALINGA STADIUM :

Singer and music composer Sona Mohapatra from Odisha, who had earlier landed in controversy for singing remake of popular Sambalpuri song ‘Rangabati’ for Coke Studio, questioned over the presentation of the particular song by Bollywood singer Shankar Mahadevan during opening ceremony of ongoing 22nd Asian Athletics Championships (AAC) in Bhubaneswar.  Taking to microblogging site Twitter, Sona raised her eyebrow over performance on the folk song on the stage at glittering evening of inaugural ceremony of the mega sports event at Kalinga Stadium.  She asked whether the original singer Jitendra Haripal was not supposed to sing the song during the event.  “Did it not occur to u that Jitendra Haripal could’ve been asked to sing at BBSR?Where did ur Sambalpur/Odia pride vanish? Hypocrites much?” she tweeted.  The Odisha Sun Times Bureau ; 8th. July,17
