A complaint has been filed against Indian actress Sai Pallavi over her comments on the killing of Kashmiri Pandits and vigilantism in the name of cow protection.

According to The Hindu, Sultan Bazar Police Station in Hyderabad received a complaint objecting Pallavi's statement. The complainants submitted a 27-second video clip. However, the police have asked for a longer video clip to take the comments in context.

Though the complaint has been filed, the police have not yet registered a case in the matter.

The actress, who is currently busy promoting her film 'Virata Parvam' which also stars Rana Daggubati, was asked if she was influenced by the left-wing movement in her personal life. In a recent interview, she spoke about Kashmir Pandits' genocide and killing in the name of cow protection.

Pallavi said that she was raised in a neutral environment so she doesn't have an opinion on who is right or who is wrong.

"I grew up in a neutral environment. I have heard about the left-wing and right-wing. I was taught I should protect the ones who are being hurt. The oppressed should be protected. Irrespective of their stature. I have heard about the left-wing and the right-wing. But, we can never surely tell who’s wrong and who’s right," she said.

The actress then mentioned film 'The Kashmir Files' as she drew parallels between Kashmir Pandits genocide and lynching in the name of cow protection.

"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. Where is the difference between these two incidents?" she added.

In her film 'Virata Parvam' said to be inspired by real-life events, released today. The actress plays the role of a woman who falls in love with a Naxal leader, played by Daggubati.

"We have to be good human beings. If we are good ones, we won’t hurt others. To answer your question, justice won’t be there either on the side of the right or the left, if you are not a good human being. I’m very neutral. So what I believe is if you are stronger than me, and you are oppressing me, then you are in the wrong. A large number of people oppressing a small group of people is wrong. A battle has to be fought between two equals," the actress further told the Greatandhra YouTube channel during the interview.
