People said on social that the poster hurts the religious sentiments of Hindu followers. In the poster, one can see that the filmmaker, Leena Mainmekalai showed Hindu Goddess Maa Kaali smocking a cigarette.

Sharing the poster on Facebook the director wrote, ”Super Thrilled to share the launch of my recent film today at Aga Khan Museum. A 6 minute excerpt of the film, ”Kaali” will be shown today as part of Aga Khan Museum’s ”Rhythms of Canada”, a week-long festival celebrating the diverse tapestry of Canadian Culture. Entrance to the event and the Museum’s permanent collection Gallery during the festival is free.”

A Twitter user namely SanksP asked the Aga Khan Museum to take the film down immediately. ”This is blasphemy and hurts Hindu religious sentiment,” wrote the user.

”Every day Hindu religiohn is mocked, is government, testing our patience??,” wrote a Twitter user namely Chandra Prakash Sing.
