Nayanthara responded to the removal of her film, "Annapoorani," from Netflix due to

allegations of hurting sentiments. The movie, centred on an ambitious woman from a

traditional background, faced criticism for allegedly offending religious sentiments.

Nayanthara, expressing regret, clarified that the film aimed to convey a positive

message and that unintentional hurt had occurred. An FIR was filed against the film,

prompting an apology from Zee Studios to the Vishwa Hindu Parishad. The film's

removal from the OTT platform was announced until edits addressing the concerns

were made. Nayanthara emphasised her commitment to spreading positivity through

her film career. "Annapoorani" explores the conflict faced by an ambitious woman torn

between pursuing her passion and adhering to orthodox values.
