Who is Subhashree Sahu: Rising Activist and Actress Aims to Raise Awareness
Bhubaneswar, June 10, 2024 - Subhashree Sahu, a 17-year-old actress and social media influencer from Odisha, is set to star in a groundbreaking new Odia web series that shines a light on the perils of social media. The series, titled "Shedding Light On The Dark Side of Social Media," is a collaboration between Sahu and production company Sociokitentertainment.

From Personal Hardship to Advocacy  

Sahu's motivation to create the web series stems from her own harrowing experience of having a private video leaked online earlier this year without her consent. The viral spread of the video brought intense scrutiny and backlash, underscoring the damaging consequences of online privacy breaches and cyberbullying.

"I have personally experienced the negative effects of social media, and I want to use this platform to shine a light on these pressing issues," Sahu said in a statement. "By sharing stories, we can raise awareness and drive change."

A Journey Across Odisha, Bihar and Jharkhand

The narrative will follow characters across the states of Odisha, Bihar and Jharkhand, depicting how social media's unchecked influence can wreak havoc on lives, particularly for young people. Issues like cyberbullying, privacy violations and mental health impacts will be explored through compelling storylines.

After authorities utilized laws like POSCO and the IT Act to address the leak of Sahu's video, the young star decided to transform her ordeal into an opportunity for larger social impact.  

Series producers hope the show will spark important conversations around creating safer online spaces and provide resources for those affected by social media's darkest consequences.
