For the last few days, Kangana Ranaut has been hogging the limelight with her revelations about Hrithik Roshan and their fling. A can of worms has been opened and Ranaut is not letting go of any opportunity to name and shame Hrithik.
Very recently, she publically demanded an apology from Hrithik – not once but twice in a span of a few days. She spoke about how the Bollywood hunk caused her mental trauma. Kangana also went on disgracing Hrithik’s father, Rakesh Roshan.
While the feisty actress has been receiving support from most feminists for her stand, not everyone is pleased with her constant bickering about a failed relationship. One of them is singer Sona Mohapatra.
Now Mohapatra is someone who believes in calling a spade a spade. She is known for shooting from the lips. She recently proved that you cannot mess with her by silencing Mika Singh when the latter send his “best wishes” to convicted rapist Gurmeet Singh.
On September 4, Mohapatra took to Facebook to speak on the Kangana-Hrithik controversy. And, again, she did not mince words.
In her short post, Mohapatra tried to remind Kangana that the latter’s stature is too high for such squabbles and that this “current ‘circus’ is not” welcome.
You can read her post here.
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. 🤧)
But not everyone is pleased with Mohapatra this time. Here are the top eight comments exactly as they are. Not one of them is in agreement with Mohapatra.
Well, what do you think? Do you agree with Sona Mohapatra or do you think Kangana should speak about Hrithik more in public?
