Singer Sona Mohapatra has always been vocal about women’s rights and never shies away from speaking her mind. Her unabashed opinions have often made headlines and mostly, for all the right reasons.
Sona has now reacted to the ongoing controversy around normalizing gender violence in many TikTok videos. Reacting to the obnoxious video by Faizal Siddiqui in which Faizal takes revenge on a girl for leaving him, by throwing a liquid that causes damage to her face, she said that demeaning women have somehow been always normalized in our society. Responding to a tweet, Sona took a brutal dig at Salman and wrote,
“Dear @aaliznat, nothing before & after the ‘spliced’ video u were defending of this guy cd justify it. Demeaning women is normalized in our culture. We grew up with stories of SalmanKhan, breaking bottles on his girlfriends head in public, yet the country’s biggest star? Needs to stop.”
Earlier, Sona expressed relief that she had never joined TikTok. She wrote, “So relieved I could never be persuaded to get on to this low life platform & even in Covid19 times where there was a paid branded opportunity,said no. Music labels scout for #TikTok stars to lip sync our songs to get better ‘reach’”.
This isn’t the first time that Sona has pointed out at Salman. She had once also referred to Khan as the ‘poster child of toxic masculinity’.
And when Salman commented on Priyanka Chopra after she walked out of his film Bharat at the last minute, Sona wrote, “Cus @priyankachopra has better things to do in life, real men to hang out with & more importantly, girls to inspire with her journey.”
