Numerous film stars had come to Anurag Kashyap’s defence and some had questioned the ‘timing’ of the allegations against the director known to be a staunch critic of the government. Hansal Mehta was one of those to ask if it was a ‘witch hunt’ to silence an ‘artist with a dissenting opinion’ and pointing out ‘then the tagging’ of the Prime Minister.
In another tweet, she wrote how ‘people blame women for everything’, and then post the ‘smash the patriarchy’, referring to the ‘roses are red…’ message posted by many stars like Sonam K Ahuja, Kareena Kapoor, among others to support Rhea Chakraborty, after she had been arrested.
She wrote that it was time to let the women be heard and that a ‘voice suppressed is a generation of women oppressed’. She asserted ‘it’s 2020’ and sought support of the nation.
