Singer Sona Mohapatra has shared a list of eight suggestions which she wants implemented in Bollywood to ‘smash the patriarchy’ the correct way. This includes equal pay for female actors and encouraging female directors. Sona’s list of suggestions comes a day after Hollywood actor Kate Winslet reevaluated her career choices in an explosive interview to Vanity Reasonable.

Amid the ‘Smash The Patriarchy’ crusade for Rhea Chakraborty, who was once arrested earlier this week by the Narcotics Keep an eye on Bureay, Sona took to Twitter to show the “correct way” of doing it. She tweeted, “Lets do this the correct 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) Movie them ‘solo songs’ to cause them to larger than life? (No, item numbers don’t count). #SmashThePatriarchy.”

 

4) Speak up(at least one time?) approximately ur superstar of ages;a poster boy of poisonous masculinity,a bully,serial abuser of women’s rights. Insteaddirectors,producers,writers scramble to create more advantage signalling films for him? Actresses bend backwards to 🌟in them. #SmashThePatriarchy

Sharing more suggestions from the list, she added, “4) Speak up(at least one time?) approximately ur superstar of ages;a poster boy of poisonous masculinity,a bully,serial abuser of women’s rights. Instead directors,producers,writers scramble to create more advantage signalling films for him? Actresses bend backwards to star in them. 5)B more inclusive in ur choices of movie technicians. Don’t suppose a female DOP cannot shoot a big budget movie cus she’s not ‘strong’ enough?!One of the best films in the west are shot by women!My fav;Ellen Kuras. Everlasting sunshine of the spotless brain.”

 

6) Worry & do something positive 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 at all times reprise versions, never to be promoted. The duets having us in refrain only? #SmashThePatriarchy #India

She further wrote, “6) Worry & do something positive 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 at all times reprise versions, never to be promoted. The duets having us in refrain only? 7)Be embarrassed about the systemic-institutional sexism, misogyny & lopsided power constitution in the industry where NOT ONE lead actress or actor spoke up approximately the inconvenient truths in the #MeToo movement. Nearly everyone looked the opposite direction.”

 

8)Agree with women directors (not just the ones from the movie families)with bigger production budgets.They’re 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🤟🏾
