On May 8, the Trinamool Congress administration in West Bengal banned the film ‘The Kerala Story,’ citing “peace” and the avoidance of “hatred and violence” in the state.
West Bengal was the first state to prohibit the film. ‘The Kerala Story’ tells the story of three women sold to ISIS camps after marrying into Islam.
Even though the film is now tax-free in BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh, there is an ongoing political controversy.
Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee stated, “It is to avoid any violence incident.”
Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee stated, “It is to avoid any incident of hatred and violence, and to maintain peace in the state.”
The Chief Minister has asked the state chief secretary to withdraw the film from all theatres where it is now playing.
In response to the ban, the film’s producer, Vipul Amrutlal Shah, stated they will seek legal action against the ruling.
“If the state government does not listen to us, we will pursue legal action.” “However, whatever path we take will be guided by legal counsel,” Mr Shah told ANI.
The film, directed by Sudipto Sen and produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah, drew harsh criticism from Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, who termed it “RSS propaganda.”
The key actors in ‘The Kerala Story’ are Adah Sharma, Yogita Bihani, Siddhi Idnani, and Sonia Balani.
The film sparked outrage as its trailer stated that 32,000 women from Kerala had gone missing and joined the terrorist organisation ISIS. However, in response to public outrage, the controversial figure in the caravan was later removed.
Its trailer description was eventually modified to a narrative about three Kerala ladies.
