Kangana Ranaut Slams The Kerala Story Ban

The ‘Queen’ actress Kangana Ranaut on Tuesday said the ban imposed on Adah Sharma’s The Kerala Story by some states was ‘unconstitutional’ after it was cleared by the CBFC. Kangana told reporters, “Banning a film which has been passed by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) amounts to insulting the constitution. The ban on ‘The Kerala Story’ by some states is not correct’.

 Sudipto Sen’s directorial has polarised the political discourse in the country as it depicts how women from Kerala were forced to convert and recruited by the terror group Islamic State (IS). The West Bengal government had imposed a ban on The Kerala Story on May 8. Theatres in Tamil Nadu had decided to stop its screening, citing the law-and-order situation and a poor audience turnout.

For the unversed, last week, the Supreme Court slayed the West Bengal government’s order banning the film and asked Tamil Nadu to ensure the safety of the moviegoers. According to the ‘Queen’ actress, people often complain that Bollywood does not make the kind of films they want to watch. Kangana Ranaut said, “When a film like The Kerala Story is made, people’s complaint is redressed. Such films help the film industry.”

The film stars Adah Sharma in the lead, along with actors Yogita Bihani, Sonia Balani and Siddhi Idnani. The Kerala Story has so far raised over Rs 200 crore at the domestic box office.
