Sai Pallavi is a celebrated South Indian actress and enjoys a huge fan following, but recently she got embroiled in a controversy over her comments on Kashmir.

Pallavi, who is nowadays promoting her upcoming movie, 'Virata Parvam'  compared Kashmiri Pandit's genocide to the lynching of a man suspected of cow smuggling. Now, as per India Today, a police complaint has been filed in Hyderabad against the actress over her controversial remarks. 

This all started after her interview with the Youtube channel went viral. During the interview, Pallavi was asked whether she was influenced by any kind of politics during her college days, to which she replied she comes from a very politically neutral family and later compared the recently released movie 'The Kashmir Files' with the Muslim person who was killed on suspicion cow smuggling. 

''I grew up in a neutral environment. I have heard about the left-wing and right-wing. But, I cannot say who is right and who is wrong. The film, The Kashmir Files, shows how Kashmiri Pandits were killed. Recently, there was an incident of a person being killed for carrying a cow because he was suspected to be a Muslim. After killing the person, the attackers raised 'Jai Shri Ram' slogans. What is the difference between what happened in Kashmir and what happened recently?"

After her video went viral, the actress received huge flak from some netizens, while others took her side and praised her for speaking her mind without any hesitation. 

Some Twitter users also pointed out that there is no comparison between a Kashmiri Pandit exodus and lynching.
