The plot of 'Annapoorani' revolves around the character played by Nayanthara, a Brahmin girl seeking to become a top chef. The film explores her struggles between her passion for cooking and the orthodox ideals she is expected to adhere to. A scene in the film where her classmate convinces her to try meat and mentions that Lord Ram also consumed it drew particular controversy. Ramesh Solanki, founder of the Hindu IT cell, expressed his objection to the film on social media and filed a complaint with the police. An FIR (First Information Report) was subsequently filed against Nayanthara, the actor Jai, writer-director Nilesh Krishna, producers Jatin Sethi, R Ravindran, and Punit Goenka, Zee Studios Chief Business Officer Shariq Patel, and Netflix India's head, Monika Shergill.

Nayanthara clarified that the film's intention was to spread a positive message and uplift viewers. She expressed deep regret for any hurt caused and extended her heartfelt apologies to those whose sentiments were affected. She reiterated her commitment to promoting positivity and learning through her work in the film industry.
