The removal of Nayanthara's Annapoorani from Netflix, following allegations of hurting

religious sentiments, has sparked surprising silence from the Tamil film industry.

Despite its history of commenting on political issues, Kollywood, with few exceptions,

has not condemned Netflix's decision. The controversy, centered on alleged Hindu

sentiment offenses, led to an FIR and the film's removal. Insiders cite the sensitive

timing, reluctance to risk financial repercussions, and the current discourse on Ram as possible reasons for the industry's silence.
