Sai Pallavi took to Instagram to share a video of her clarifying on the statement and also added that her words were misinterpreted. She also stood by the fact that she believes that violence in the name of religion will always be a sin. She said, “This is the first time I will be thinking twice before I speak my heart because I am anxious that my words might be misinterpreted.” She also added that she had spoken to the director of The Kashmir Files (Vivek Agnihotri) about his film and how it left her quite disturbed. Maintaining that she would never demean any tragedy like that. In the same breath, she also maintained her stance adding that she can never forget the mob lynching incident either.

Sai stated in the video, “This was three months ago, I remember telling him that I was disturbed, seeing the plight of the people at that time. And being someone that I am, I would never belittle tragedy, like the genocide and the generations of people who are still affected by it. Having said that, I can never come to terms with the mob lynching incident, that has taken place during our COVID times; because I remember seeing that video and being shaken.” She went to add, “I believe that violence in any form is wrong. And violence in the name of any religion is should sin.”


That was not, Sai also spoke up about how people continued to defend the mob incident. She added, “It was very disturbing to see that many people online, justify the mob lynching incident, and I don't think any of us have the right to take another person's life.”

She expressed gratitude towards everyone who supported her through this tough times. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people who stood by me the last few days because I remember feeling so alone and conflicted wondering what I did wrong, and it was heartwarming to see that a lot of people raise your voice in my in support of me and I felt like they knew me for who I am. So thank you so much for making me feel like I wasn't alone,” she concluded.
