The petitioner, Dhakshinamoorthy, an advocate in Madurai, mentioned that the paper had carried "very sexy blow-ups and medium blow-ups" in its issues in December 2005 and January 2006. At the time, in interaction with TOI, she said, "As far as my photographs go, what is obscene about it? If navel-showing is obscenity, then our traditional Indian outfit – the traditional sari – should be banned in the first place."

The Big Brother controversy

Shilpa was a part of the fifth series of the British reality television series Celebrity Big Brother. During her stay, she was the subject of alleged racist behaviour from her fellow housemates Danielle, Jade and Jo. She was even reduced to tears on several occasions. She later won the season. This case back then went viral on social media and TV news channels.
