Sona Mohapatra shares the right way to ‘smash the patriarchy’, praises Anushka Sharma for backing women directors

Singer Sona Mohapatra has shared a listing of eight strategies which she desires carried out in Bollywood to ‘smash the patriarchy’ the right way. This consists of equal pay for feminine actors and inspiring feminine directors. Sona’s record of strategies comes a day after Hollywood actor Kate Winslet reevaluated her profession selections in an explosive interview to Vanity Fair.

Amid the ‘Smash The Patriarchy’ marketing campaign for Rhea Chakraborty, who was arrested earlier this week by the Narcotics Control Bureay, Sona took to Twitter to present the “right way” of doing it. She tweeted, “Lets do this the right way dear #Bollywood & #India cus the rest is mostly hot air. 1) Pay your top actresses the same as your top actors.2) Write enough worthy roles 3) Film them ‘solo songs’ to make them larger than life? (No, item numbers don’t count). #SmashThePatriarchy.”

Sharing extra strategies from the record, she added, “4) Speak up(at least once?) about ur superstar of ages;a poster boy of toxic masculinity,a bully,serial abuser of women’s rights. Instead directors,producers,writers scramble to create more virtue signalling films for him? Actresses bend backwards to star in them. 5)B more inclusive in ur choices of film technicians. Don’t assume a female DOP cannot shoot a big budget film cus she’s not ‘strong’ enough?!Some of the best films in the west are shot by women!My fav;Ellen Kuras. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind.”

She additional wrote, “6) Worry & do something about the horrendous statistics of only 8/9 songs out of the 100 released by you having a female singer in #Bollywood. The solo female songs always reprise versions, never to be promoted. The duets having us in chorus only? 7)Be ashamed of the systemic-institutional sexism, misogyny & lopsided power structure in the industry where NOT ONE lead actress or actor spoke up about the inconvenient truths in the #MeToo movement. Almost everyone looked the other way.”

Sharing the final suggestion to encourage women filmmakers, she wrote, “8)Trust women directors (not just the ones from the film families)with bigger production budgets.They are less likely to blow it up on wasteful ego-driven choices2.Financing a woman driven project is difficult as hell.Kudos to producer @AnushkaSharma for backing women directors.”

Anushka’s current digital launch Bulbbul was directed by Anvita Dutt. The movie revolved round the lead protagonist Bulbbul, performed by Tripti Dimri.
