I know how to pronounce my own name correctly, "she explained." Because that's the reality, no one can pronounce someone else's name except the person himself, you know? That's my name. I'm sorry but I can be in charge here. There is an answer and that answer is my own. There is no discussion about that. "

After breaking down the correct pronunciation of her name, Maitreyi does not allow any wrong variations. She said, "Now 'my tree' is fun and we should remember that names have power. Pronounce people's names the way they want and give yourself the trouble, "and later added that she was only" asking for basic respect.
