"Roses are red
violets are blue,
Let’s smash patriarchy
Me and you."
These words have become synonymous with actress Rhea Chakraborty in the past 24 hours or so after she arrived at her Narcotics Control Bureau hearing on Tuesday for her following investigations into her alleged involvement in her late boyfriend and Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death by suicide.
Her t-shirt managed to create a lot of curiosity among Indians who googled "patriarchy" to know what it actually meant.
While the t-shirt was a "statement" in itself, it was part of a campaign run by popular online clothing and accessories company, The Souled Store to promote the campaign on sanitary napkins for rural women in India.
