Speaking with Indian Express Malayalam, the actress said that breastfeeding is mother’s priviledge. “It is a problem to interpret this sexually. Isn’t it a beautiful thing, friends? Why do you think it is wrong? Which god will be angry if you feed your child?” she asked.
She added that she went ahead for the campaign without paying heed to what people may think. She also revealed that her family did not approve of her decision to feature on the cover image of the magazine which showed a mother breastfeeding her child.
