Poonam Pandey's post 

In her post, she used the hashtags #NationFirst and #ExploreIndianIsland, as well as tagging the Indian PMO, to assert that the nation comes first in the face of anti-India rhetoric from some Maldivian ministers.

She wrote, "I love shooting in the Maldives, but I'll never shoot there again. When I was set to shoot my next shoot in the Maldives, I told my team that I would not fly if the shoot got stranded there. Fortunately, they consented and are now aiming to shoot in Lakshadweep.

In the post, she also included a snapshot of her conversation with her travel and schedule coordinator. Following Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Lakshadweep this week, there has been a surge in demand.
