“Will Take Legal Action”: ‘The Kerala Story’ Producer On West Bengal Ban

“The Kerala Story” producer Vipul Shah on Monday said they will take legal action against the ban assessed by the West Bengal government on the webbing of the film in the state.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee ordered an immediate ban on the webbing of the controversial movie to avoid” any incident of abomination and violence”.

Still, also we will again take legal action,” If that is what she has done. Whatever is possible under the vittles of the law, we will fight that,” Vipul Shah said at a press conference when asked about the ban in West Bengal.

The Kerala High Court had refused to stay the release and said the caravan doesn’t contain anything obnoxious to any particular community as a whole. It noted that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has examined the movie and set up it suitable for public exhibition.

“The Kerala Story”, which depicts the plight of a group of women in Kerala who are forced to convert and join the ISIS, has demurred up a political storm.

While numerous BJP leaders have spoken in its favour, Kerala’s ruling CPI (M) and opposition Congress have said the film falsely claims that 32,000 women got converted and radicalised and were stationed in terror operations both in India and the world.

The film’s director Sudipto Sen and Vipul Shah had called the press conference after several theatres supposedly declined to screen the movie in Tamil Nadu stewing demurrers.

Asked about the losses it may face due to the ban, Mr Shah said,” We’ll not talk about profit or loss now, we will only try to insure that further and further people watch the film. However, also we will try every legal route possible, If a state government or a private person will try to stop the film.” Patron Shah called “The Kerala Story” a film on a ” serious social subject” and requested the Tamil Nadu government to insure a” smooth and fair” release of the movie.

“In Tamil Nadu, one existent has hovered and forced the government to stop the release,” he said without naming anyone.

“I am requesting the government insure that the film is released since the honourable court has formerly given the order. It’s the state government’s duty to insure a smooth and fair release of the film. Let people decide whether they want to see it. But this is a fully inferior situation,” he added.

On April 6, Naam Tamilar Katchi (NTK) offered a kick against the release of the film in Chennai. Seeman, the party’s fellow, who’s also actor and director, along with NTK configurations, had protested near Anna Nagar Arch.
