Singer Sona Mohapatra recently treated fans with the news of her intimate and unapologetic documentary Shut Up Sona.
The project is set to hit screens on July 1 on ZEE5. The documentary directed by Deepti Gupta and produced by Sona follows the singer as she takes on blatant misogyny on social media, tirelessly fights for equal representation of women in the music industry and stands up to all those who try to police her body, her mind, and her creativity.
Speaking about the same, the singer says, “As a woman, I’ve been told about the lines all my life. The lines I cannot cross like don’t sing loudly, don’t voice your opinion, don’t shout back at bullies or don’t misbehave. As a singer, artiste, performer and producer, I’ve been making my way into a man’s world and the rules are skewed in their favour. I’ve been told to ‘shut up’ for bringing this up. This film is my response to those dictates, those affronts.”
