The Kerala Story: Creators to file a lawsuit after Tamil Nadu theatres cease screening the movie: Report

‘The Kerala Story’ is based on actual incidents in which Kerala women were duped into joining ISIS in Iraq and Syria. According to reports

Tamil Nadu theatre owners said that they would not be showing the movie due to law and order difficulties in the midst of the boiling debate and controversy surrounding ‘The Kerala Story.’

The producers have now made the decision to file a lawsuit in court against the theatre owners, claiming that their action was “illegal.”


According to reports, the genuine story behind ‘The Kerala Story’ involves Kerala women who were duped into joining ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

Sudipto Sen, the director of The Kerala Story, and Vipul Amrutlal Shah, the producer, are reportedly planning to file a lawsuit against Tamil Nadu theatre owners who decided not to exhibit the movie in the state. Sen further stated that his production company will in fact sue Tamil Nadu theatre owners.

Many theatres have cancelled the showings of ‘The Kerala Story’ throughout Kerala as well as Tamil Nadu, alleging problems with law and order.

On the other side, political figures in Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, and other states are organising special screenings. Even in MP, the movie has been considered tax-free.

The Kerala Story, which debuted in theatres on May 5, has been making ripples all over the nation since it was announced.

The controversy doesn’t appear to have any effect on the movie’s box office, either, as numerous theatres were packed over the weekend and additional midnight showings had to be added to keep up with demand.

The Kerala Story tells the story of three women who were duped and trafficked into the ISIS-controlled nations of Iraq and Syria. Adah Sharma, Siddhi Idnani, Sonia Balani, and Yogita Bihani play the lead roles in the movie.
