Kolkata: Trinamool Congress MP and film star Nusrat Jahan is in the news once again. This time she dressed up as Goddess Durga for advertisements for a clothing line and has been receiving death threats on social media thereafter. She had posted the photos on Instagram on September 17, NDTV reported.
The actor left for London on September 27 for a film shoot but her office has alerted authorities, the report added.
She is seen holding a trishul in the ads. The threats are from India and Bangladesh, the report said.
“We have taken up the matter with the Bengal government and the Ministry of External Affairs, who are in turn coordinating with the Indian Embassy in London (UK), for protection, as an additional security measure,” NDTV quoted a close aide as saying.
“Ms Jahan has always stood for her secular and inclusive viewpoints and these trolls do not deter her,” he added.
