The model reposted an image on a social-networking site, made by one of her fans, which showed a morphed image of a Pakistani cricketer bowing before the portrait of a Hindu god and a nude Poonam. But this didn't go well with Kolkata citizens when an English daily published the morphed picture.
Poonam posted on the micro-blogging saying, 'I am really shocked and hurt over the incident in Kolkata, a fan made stupid morphed pic of mine was published by mistake on a News Paper. Tweet Hearts & all my Fans round d World i do appreciate ur Love towards me but such edited/Morphed pix really hurt me. Please keep me away from any such unwanted controversies which could hurt one's sentiments.'
