In reply to this Sona quickly took to hit back. She said, “I’d suggest you treat the multiple ‘cleavages’ in your brain before talking with anyone, let alone with a ‘feminist’ trying to ‘woo’ the ‘bolly gang’’. (Cleavage, noun: a sharp division; a split.)”

Sona has always been a harsh believer of the truth and does not shy away from advocating it. The brazen and beautiful singer took to Facebook to express her views on feminism in 2017. She made a few pointers that did make a lot of sense in regards to women-centric films, low budget and financial support. She stated, “For me, simply put, feminism means women are equal to men. Neither is inferior or superior. The ideal society in the future would be one in which we all operated & thought as ‘humans’ first & gender did not play a role in the treatment meted out to anyone’s opportunities in the world. While that is a utopian dream in the current day, the reason we need to have such discussions, debates & even fights is to work towards such a future. Attitudinal change in society won’t happen without the same. This is the ‘good fight’, & worth fighting make no mistake.”
