Critics have sparked controversy over specific scenes in “Annapoorani.” One scene shows Nayanthara, playing the temple priest’s daughter, offering namaz in a hijab while preparing biryani. Another contentious scene involves a character convincing her to eat meat by claiming it aligns with Lord Ram and Sita’s diet.
In response to the backlash against “Annapoorani: Goddess of Food,” Nayanthara issued a heartfelt apology for unintentionally causing offense to Hindus. She explained that the film’s true message is about overcoming life’s challenges, not religious commentary or social controversy. She shared a message on her Instagram profile where she apologized and also made sure her intentions were known. The movie was made to uplift and not cause distress, she says in her message.
