Hard Kaur aka Taran Kaur Dhillion became a household name with her hit numbers in Ugly Aur Pagli, Singh Is Kinng and Patiala House. Recently, Kaur took to her social media handle where she opened up about being assaulted back in 2017. Sharing the pictures of her bruises on Instagram, Hard Kaur refrained from initially mentioning the name of the person who assaulted her. After being urged by her fans, fans revealed that it was MO Joshi.
Taking to Instagram, Hard Kaur wrote, “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”

Replying to the accusations by Hard Kaur, Joshi took to his Facebook handle and wrote that he is open to investigations. He said, “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.”
Regarding the Accusation of Assault put forth by Hard Kaur: As some of you will have read by now, there's a post doing…
He went on to write, “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.”
While we wait for Hard Kaur’s next step, stay tuned for all the updates.
