She called it a case of "imposed religiosity", describing the use of loudspeakers as "lowlife" and "

Her tweets were met with both praise and scorn. While some commended her for talking about the issue, others called her an attention-seeker.
Some users even made abusive and sexually-coloured remarks against her, following which she approached suburban Oshiwara police and filed a complaint.

When a Twitter user posted that it was good to wake up at Brahma Muhurta (early morning) according to Hinduism, the actress replied, "I wake up at Brahmamuhurt of my own accord & do my prayers & riyaz & yoga. I don't need public loudspeakers to remind me of my God or my duty."
