Singer Sona Mohapatra has taken to Facebook to give an advice to Kangana Ranaut regarding the hyped issue of her legal battle with Hrithik Roshan. In her recent FB post, Sona said that while she always stood beside with Kangana and admired her for maintaining her strength on the issue, etching the issue before the release of her movie equates to falling victim to a PR gimmick.
Sona also wrote that what Kangana was doing currently is a ‘big dis respect to the cause of feminism and fair play.’ Her post reads like:
“Dear Kangana, I have always cheered loudly, in private & in public for you. Long, long before you turned queen et all but your current run across the airwaves regurgitating personal details of your love life over & over again, washing dirty linen in public & more so as part of a professional PR campaign before your film release is in bad taste. No two ways about it. Also, it does a big dis-service to the cause of feminism & fair play. Wish you well & wish you would rise above this muck & make your point through actions & your work. Your success doesn’t need this tabloid trail. Your well thought out & superbly worded open letters of the past, fearless interviews addressing larger issues, taking a stand, taking legal recourse are welcome. The current ‘circus’, not.
This is just another opinion in the public domain from one working woman to another, from the heart & on an impulse. There is no PR machinery or team guiding me here.
I do believe that there are plenty of feminists in the opposite gender. Men who cheer the cause of outspoken, feisty, fierce & hard working women like you & me. We don’t ‘need’ them as such but let’s not forget them & also the thousands of amazing women who fight the good fight on a daily basis with dignity .
Life might not have been easy but you are in a great place now. More so to influence positive change. That is worthy of a daily celebration.
Also, today is Onam, a thanksgiving festival in the South. The mythology surrounding the festival is significant – it emphasizes the Hindu belief in the cyclical nature of events, that no individual, no ruler and nothing lasts forever, except the virtues and self-understanding that overcomes all sorrow.
So, Happy Onam.
Big love & healing to you.
(P.S To the so called ‘journos’ hankering after this masala & asking those thaka hua questions.)”
For the uninitiated, Kangana’s upcoming film, Simran, releases on September 15. The actress has been giving fierce interviews on how Hrithik damaged to her image and that she deserved an apology for the same.
What’s your take on the entire case?
