Sona Mohapatra is elated as Tanushree Dutta supports her fight against #MeToo accused Anu Malik
Singer Sona Mohapatra is single-handedly carrying her fight against #MeToo accused Anu Malik. Malik was called out by several women in the Me Too movement. Despite that, he is back as a judge on Sony TV’s singing reality show Indian Idol. Sona wants Anu to step down and render an apology, even go for sex-rehab if needed.
Recently it was actor Abhay Deol who lent his support to Sona’s relentless fight against Malik. And now actress Tanushree Dutta has come out in support of Mohapatra. Sona thanked Dutta for her support and stated that #MeToo movement is far from dead.
Tanushree recently slammed Sony TV and Neha Kakkar for working with a #MeToo accused Anu Malik. Now thanking Dutta, Sona took to her Instagram handle and wrote, “I feel truly elated! She was the first to speak up in #MeToo in Bollywood and she has been really brave in this fight for safer workplaces.”
She further added, “My own fight is not against just one man, but with an entire system which 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. The tide is turning and while it does take time, the good people of the world do rally together to fight evil and help change things for the larger good. So many speaking up and showing solidarity in public has strengthened the movement. MeToo will not die that easily, the second wave is here and its TimesUp now.”

Apart from Sona, other singers like Neha Bhasin, Shweta Pandit and Alisha Chinai had accused Malik of sexual harassment which he has claimed to be all false.
