Talking about the film, Mona said, “Ek Chup is based on the idiom ‘Ek chup sau sukh’ (stay quiet, earn a hundredfold happiness). You know, as Indians, most mothers tell their daughters to keep quiet and everything will work out. However, women need to stand up for their rights and I think this movie and the script were just absolutely perfect to talk about this topic.”
The director of the film Sonya V. Kapoor also talked about the short film and said that it was based on a very important issue, namely, the shadow pandemic of violence against women and domestic abuse during the Covid-19 lockdown days. It was UN Women that first termed it as the ‘shadow pandemic’ – a pandemic within a pandemic concluded Sonya.
Sonya V. Kapoor is a winner of the British Film Fellowship for her documentary Once there was a Purple Butterfly. During the interview, Mona all praises Sonya and said that she is very cool, calm and composed.
Mona Singh rose to fame with the TV show Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin in which she was seen as the main lead.
