Sona Mohapatra in a long post thanked former Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta for her support over her #MeToo battle towards music composer and Indian Idol judge Anu Malik. The latter was first accused of misconduct last year during the #MeToo wave and was temporarily dropped as the judge of the reality show. However, after he was reinstated in September, the allegations resurfaced again. Many women such as Shweta Pandit, Neha Bhasin, and others have leveled allegations against him. However, thanking the former actress for her support and claiming that she is completely 'elated', Mohapatra wrote, "The tide is turning and while it does take time, the good people of the world do rally together to fight evil and help change things for the larger good. So many speaking up and showing solidarity in public has strengthened the movement. MeToo will not die that easily, the second wave is here and its TimesUp now,". Read her entire post below-
