An anonymous lawyer lodged a petition against the short film “Sita, I’m not a virgin” in 2017 as the use of the name goddess “Sita” in the title with the words “I’m Not a Virgin” hurt the sentiments of the Hindus and was considered inappropriate according to Hindu mythology. Shanmukh in an interview said that they had no intention of hurting anyone’s sentiments and the film was just a carrier of a bold message in which the character’s (Deepthi Sunaina) name was Sita and had nothing to do with the Ramayana. He furthermore added to not make assumptions based on the title before even watching the entire movie. The title was later changed to “Seetha I’m Not A Virgin” to dismiss the charges.
