Nayanthara's Annapoorani Faces Legal Hurdles
Nayanthara, celebrated for her captivating Bollywood debut in Jawan alongside Shah Rukh Khan, is now facing legal troubles due to her recent film, Annapoorani. Released on December 1, 2023, the film failed to make a mark at the box office, accumulating a reported mere 5 crore.
The controversy erupted with an FIR filed in Mumbai, accusing Nayanthara of promoting Love Jihad through Annapoorani. The complaint alleges that the character Jai, played by Nayanthara, makes statements suggesting that Lord Ram was a meat eater, leading to claims of hurting religious sentiments.
The complaint, lodged by the Hindi IT Cell, argues that Annapoorani misinterprets Valmiki's Ramayana and criticizes Lord Ram. The film's narrative follows a girl aspiring to be a chef, facing challenges due to her Hindu temple pujari background. Certain scenes, including Nayanthara's character performing Nawaz and covering her head with a scarf during a cooking competition, have drawn criticism, resulting in the filing of the FIR.
Social media has seen strong condemnation of the film, with some labeling it a "shame" and a "scam" for allegedly misusing the name of the goddess. As the controversy unfolds, many are keen to see if the filmmakers will address the allegations and provide clarity on the intentions behind Annapoorani.Maldivian Ministers Deny Reports of Dismissal Amidst Controversial Comments
