Sona Mohapatra thanks Tanushree Dutta
In a leading daily, Tanushree who is known for starting #MeToo in India praised Mohapatra and others for fighting against Anu Malik.
Reacting to Tanushree’s comments, Sona thanks her for supporting her and stated that #MeToo movement is far from dead.
Sona wrote, “I read Tanushree’s interview and critique of Sony TV’s double standards of claiming to be a family channel but platforming a multiple accused sexual predator like Anu Malik on Indian Idol this morning on my way back from a concert and I felt truly elated! She was the first to speak up in #MeToo in Bollywood after the women in Kerala initiated the movement in India and she has been really brave in this fight for safer workplaces.”
“My own fight is not against just one man, but against an entire system that normalises sexual harassment and encourages perverted behaviour, power play and a lopsided system. I am not one to tire easily or run away from a battlefield and one odd fight might be lost but ultimately the war will be won,” Sona added.
