West Bengal’s chief minister, Mamata Banerjee, called the movie “The Kerala Story” “a distorted story.”
The Kerala Story, a controversial film, has been banned from theatres by the West Bengal government. Mamata Bannerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal, imposed an immediate stop on the film’s showings.
The Kerala Story is a skewed film intended to malign the southern state, according to Banerjee, who made that claim earlier in the day. Mamata Banerjee was quoted by the news agency ANI as saying, “The West Bengal government has decided to outlaw the film The Kerala Story. This will prevent any acts of hatred and violence and keep the state’s calm.
Sukanta Majumdar, the state president of the BJP, criticised the TMC government’s action and said Mamata Banerjee intended to “close her eyes to the reality” by doing so.
Producer of the movie Vipul Shah responded to The Kerala Story being banned in West Bengal by saying, “If that is what she has done, we will take legal action. We shall fight to the fullest extent permitted by the law.
The Kerala Story, starring Adah Sharma, is about alleged religious indoctrination in Kerala and how extremist Islamic clerics are pursuing Hindu and Christian women. According to the video, these women were coerced into becoming Muslims before being transferred to places like Afghanistan, Yemen, and Syria “to fight for the cause of Islam.”
Numerous organisations around the nation have strongly criticised the movie. Diverse organisations protested in Kerala and called for a delay in the premiere of the movie, which opened in theatres on May 5 across India.
The Kerala Story is banned in the state of West Bengal. The Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee banned ‘The Kerala Story’ in West Bengal, and called the film ‘a distorted story’.
