“Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.. making happy whenever I can. My film #ShutUpSona is yet travelling to places around the world & winning festivals. All my savings went into this film, just before the pandemic broke & stopped us in our tracks with no means of income,” Sona tweeted.
In a separate tweet, the singer also announced that her documentary film has been nominated in the category of “Best Documentary” at the New York Indian Film Festival 2022.
“SHUT UP SONA; Official selection & Nomination for Best #documentaryfilm at the @nyindianff 2022. @DeeptiCam @EspressoMedia #NewYork #wemadeamovie #love #music #travel,” Sona tweeted earlier in the day.
Directed by Deepti Gupta, “Shut Up Sona” revolves around her journey as a singer, her brand of music, love for her country’s roots and culture, and how she has become a symbol of hope for a larger movement.
