Kaali Poster Row: Filmmaker Leena Manimekalai Posts Fresh Tweet


New Delhi: Amid outrage over the poster of movie Kaali, Filmmaker Leena Manimekalai has shot off a fresh tweet in her defence.

On Thursday, Manimekalai tweeted a photo that shows two people smoking while dressed in the costumes of Lord Shiva and a Hindu goddess. She has succinctly captioned the photo “Elsewhere”.

The photo has striking similarities to the controversial image on the poster of Kaali.

Outrage over the poster, which shows Goddess Kaali smoking and wielding an LGBTQ pride flag, soon spilled over, and political parties joined the fray.
