In the news

In June 2022 in an interview with GreatAndhra, she commented that the film The Kashmir Files portrayed the killings of Kashmiri Pandits, during the 1990 exodus, and further asked if that is a religious conflict then what should be the difference between itself and cow vigilantism, referring to a recent incident where a Muslim was driving cows was beaten up and later forced to chant "Jai Shri Ram". The interview quickly went viral and drew criticism online. She later issued a clarification statement on her Instagram handle, saying that her statements in the interview had been misconstrued and that she would never trivialise a tragedy or accept mob lynchings.
