Annapoorani row: Nayanthara issues apology

Actress Nayanthara has issued an apology following the removal of her movie ‘Annapoorani: the Goddess of Food' from Netflix due to alleged sentiments being hurt. The film, released in theaters on December 1, was available for streaming on Netflix for just one day.
Following protests from right-wing groups, the movie was taken off from the platform.
Nayanthara began her apology with ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and said: “In our sincere attempt to share a positive message, we may have inadvertently caused hurt. We did not expect the removal of a censored film, previously showcased in theatres, from the OTT platform. My team and I never intended to hurt anyone's sentiments and we understand that the gravity of this issue. Being someone who wholely believes in God and frequently visits temples across the country, it is the last thing I would intentionally do. To those whose feelings we've touched, I extend my sincere and heartfelt apologies.”
Ramesh N Solanki, an ex-Shiv Sena leader, filed a complaint with LT Marg Police Station in Mumbai, demanding action against the actor and the makers, claiming that it has offended the Hindu community. He alleged that the film demeans Lord Rama.
The movie revolves around a young Brahmin girl's aspiration to become a chef. The right-wing groups' allegation was that movie showed the “daughter of a Brahmin man” eating meat.
