Story highlights

Meanwhile, the film continued to do great business as it has now made more than Rs 70 crore in just 3 days of it running in the theatres.

As many critics have been up in arms against the recently released Shahid Kapoor starrer ‘Kabir Singh’ calling it a feature film that glorifies toxic masculinity, singer Sona Mohapatra joins the list of those who found the film’s plot disturbing. 

She took to Twitter to call out on the lead actor Shahid Kapoor for taking up such a role and promoting the ideas of misogyny. She wrote, “& how can we keep such deeply disturbing , dark & dangerous politics ‘aside’? Does the actor have no responsibility for choosing to play a part in a narrative that can set us back as a society? Is that all we have become? Creatures of ambition? #LetsTalk  #India #KabirSingh” as she questioned the actor’s responsibility towards the society.

After the tweet went viral and she was trolled on the social media platform for lashing at Shahid, Sona then wrote another tweet that read: “Dear certain people of India please feel free to enjoy all the misogynistic expressions of Bollywood & dear media & paid PR companies  please stop using my tweets to promote the aforesaid expressions. Find your own voices & journalistic opinions. Enough of this piggy backing.”

Most recently, she was trolled by a fan of Shahid who wrote, “Ma'am @sonamohapatra before puking out acid for Kabir Singh - Movie, let me please remind that you did the playback of Bedardi Raja once! Try to appreciate. Being optimistic isn't a crime in India. Peace ✌️” 

To this she replied, “U are the nth moron trying to make such a false equivalence. A woman singing lustily & celebrating her own sexuality isn’t likely to cause violence & isn’t the same thing as a man grabbing a woman without her consent, kissing her apart from several other such toxic masculine acts.”
