‘I got rape, death threats, and sh*t delivered in dabbas:’ Sona Mohapatra on calling out Salman Khan for his rape comment
Sona Mohapatra, who is known for voicing her opinions fiercely, recounted that she had “actually sh*t coming in dabbas into her studio” in 2016 when she called Salman Khan out for his ‘rape’ remarks while he was promoting Sultan.
Salman, during the promotions of Sultan, had said in an interview that he felt like a ‘raped woman’ after working on the film. He did not comment on the matter despite his father Salim Khan’s apology for the statement.
In a recent discussion, Sona revealed to a publication that she received death threats after speaking out against Salman’s statement.
Because she had called out Salman Khan for his comments, which, Sona claimed that she had experienced the most appalling, horrific trolling, including death threats, and really having sh*t come in dabbas into her studio.
After a two-month process, the Minister of Women and Child Development was compelled to release a statement in which she announced the launch of the hashtag ‘I am being trolled’ in order to improve the safety of women and children online after Sona Mohapatra received horrific threats.
For the unversed, at the time, Sona had also mentioned, “Women thrashed, people run over, wild life massacred and yet #hero of the nation. ‘Unfair’. India (is) full of such supporters. Heard that Salman tried to retract his statement after saying it indicating some self-awareness of how wrong it was. Saying sorry won’t hurt. Dear idol of millions, getting your father to say sorry every day isn’t good enough. Teach your fans something good for a change? #India.”
