She was shamed by mob for usage of excessive unparliamentary words and physical attack on a passenger who have grazed her in a jammed airport, for this she later responded the community was led by mysoginsts.[6] A similar incident happened where she had an altercation with a passenger when she tried to bypass queue in Airport in a conceited attempt to use special privileges, both the parties registered cases against each other for abusive verbal attack.[7] She was a paid social escort of Maradona during his visit in Kerala for Boby Chemmanur's branding programs, to social media responses she framed herself to be targeted with accusations that lacks evidence for clichéd conformity by peer pressure.[8]
