Singer and actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi has complained to the Mumbai Police after being bombarded with abusive tweets about a post on the azaan or Muslim call to prayer. 'Call girl' is the least offensive of the insults directed at Ms Krishnamoorthi, 41, that we could find. Suchitra Krishnamoorthi tweeted to and received a prompt response from the Mumbai Police's handle, after which she filed a complaint at her local station in Mumbai, posting a picture of herself in front of it. "Thank you Mumbai Police, you are the best," she wrote.
 

Suchitra Krishnamoorthi has endured days of trolling after posting this tweet:
 

She has responded to several comments, for and against her tweet:
 
 
 

In other tweets, she acknowledged that the language used might have been too 'strong' and that she has also called out the beef ban and gau rakshaks in previous posts.

Ms Krishnamoorthi is the second celebrity to complain on Twitter about the azaan in the space of a few months, after singer Sonu Nigam, who later deleted his Twitter account. Mr Nigam was also trolled massively but, as one Twitter user pointed out, he was slut-shamed as Ms Krishnamoorthi has been.

Suchitra Krishnamoorthi posted a collage of the abusive tweets she received:
 

She has also received several messages of support. Those speaking up for her include director Shekhar Kapur, who is Ms Krishnamoorthi's former husband:
 

Suchitra Krishnamoorthi's best-known film work is in Mr Kapur's Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, in which she played the object of Shah Rukh Khan's affections. She appeared on the TV show Chunauti and had a successful musical career in the 90s. She was last seen in the 2010 film Rann.
