Actor turned poet Mohit Mattoo’s angst against rape is very clearly seen in his musical representation, ‘Hang the Rapist’ which recently went viral!!
It’s not a surprise that a celebrated poet of his stature paid tribute to India’s daughter, Jyoti Singh aka Nirbhaya.
Speaking to Indianwikimedia.com, Mohit expressed his thoughts, “Hang the Rapist went viral and in just three days, has garnered nearly a lakh of views and about thousand shares. I just posted it on my personal FB page out of my angst against rape. Woman needs to be respected, for she has the right to choose what she wants in life. Rapes will not be accepted and this is the clear signal that should be spread across the globe.”
He had a special mention to his team that includes Vikass Gupta, Prashant Mahanta, Ramharee Sonawane, and his very dear friend Gunjan Malhotra who agreed to play the rape victim in the video. “I am grateful and thankful to all those who acknowledged my work as an artist. I stand here for a social cause. Hang the Rapist….Rape must die.”
