Somy’s NGO works towards rescuing men, women, and children from domestic violence and has been working non-stop since 2007. “We will only be able to grow more and save more lives if we educate the world on the stigma attached to speaking about domestic violence and sexual abuse of children.

Somy, who has worked in films such as Anth (1994), Yaar Gaddar (1994), Andolan (1995), and Chupp (1997), draws inspiration from women like Malala Yousafzai and Ayaan Hirsi Ali. “These are all inspirational individuals and highly courageous, irrespective of several roadblocks. For me personally, it was my mentor/professor in college during my undergraduate degree,

Dr. William Hammack. He always encouraged me and taught me to speak up and helped me find my voice. Additionally, my younger brother has always stood by my side and encouraged me to speak up not just for myself, but for many who continue to remain unheard. These people taught me that I could do anything, and I should never give up. They taught me how to transform into a survivor from a victim mentality,” she says.

The rise of OTT, where realistic content seems to find a better audience than the big screen and the need for filmmakers to woo the audience back to the theatres seem to be reasons why many in Bollywood is going no-holds-barred with cinematic idiom this year. Some of the big films that revisit vintage masala with new-age swag were scheduled to hit the screens last year but got postponed owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.
