Read on to find out why we say so...
At the outset there is no similarity between international pop singer Kesha and actress Sunny Leone. But what binds them is the fact that both of have got tremendous support from their respective fraternites when they were persecuted. Kesha is currently fighting a legal case against music producer Dr Luke, to get out of a contract. She has accused him of sexual abuse and unfair business arrangments. However, the Supreme Court in Manhattan ruled against her and said she cannot break the contract. Soon after her fans started protesting against the judgement. And over the last few days, a movement #FreeKesha has begun in which several singers, musicians and actors including Adele, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift (she announced that she will donate $250,000 to her cause), Anne Hathaway, Reese Witherspoon and Lena Dunham have come out in support of the troubled singer. The celebrity backlash may lead to the music producer and his parent label ,Sony Music settling the case.
In the case of Sunny, it happened when in a TV interview, a journalist asked her sexist questions about her past as a porn star and went to the extent of saying that an A-List actor like Aamir would not work with her. Sunny answered all the questions with quiet dignity. The interview went viral and after watching it several Bollywood stars including Anushka Sharma, Alia Bhatt, Rishi Kapoor, Sushant Singh Rajput and Dia Mirza slammed the journalist and praised Sunny for the way she handled the interview. Aamir tweeted that he had absolutely no problems with her past and would be happy to work with her. “I think Sunny conducted herself with a lot of grace and dignity in this interview. I wish I could have said the same about the interviewer,” he wrote.
Sunny’s stock certainly went up after that with B-Town rallying behind her.
