Sona Mohapatra slams Taapsee Pannu for supporting Anurag Kashyap, supports Richa Chadha in her legal case

Sona Mohapatra is one of those celebrities who from a lot of years has been raising her voice in the MeToo movement against music composer Anu Malik. And now showing her full support to an actress who filed a complaint against filmmaker Anurag Kashyap for sexually assaulting her. While a lot of celebrities have come out in support of the filmmaker, the singer has now based actress Taapsee Pannu for defending someone who has been accused of #metoo. While on the other hand, Sona supported actress Richa Chadha who has taken legal action against the actress who dragged her name in the Kashyap controversy. 

Speaking about Taapsee, Sona wrote, “also read the statement made by Ms Tapsee Pannu about Anurag Kashyap being the ‘biggest feminist’ she knew & I honestly buckled over gobsmacked. Shows how little she knows. Anyone would see otherwise if you just watched his films & his portrayal of women. Having said that.. “
