Producer of The Kerala Story Vipul Amrutlal Shah was criticised by Jitendra Awhad for using his movie to disseminate falsehoods.
The Kerala Story, a recently released movie, has generated significant buzz due to its contentious storyline, which suggests that 32,000 women from Kerala went missing and joined ISIS. However, after significant uproar over this astounding fact, the number of girls was reduced to just 3. Even still, some people continue to disparage the movie and call it propaganda, while others can relate to the subject.
Politician Jitendra Awhad has now criticised TKS producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah for promoting a rumour that may or may not be true. In response to the movie, the leader tweeted, “In other words, you wish to disparage your female sisters? to present women as inferiors in a culture where men are in charge and to demonstrate how ignorant and uneducated our sisters are.
He even called out the producer for merely spreading lies and tweeted in Marathi. His tweet translated means, “This is the real truth of the movie based on Kerala. Such films are made with the calculation of creating violence, hatred on the basis of lies and winning elections through the same.”
Earlier, Jitendra Ahwad joined in a National Television debate against the movie and called for The Kerala Story producer Vipul Amrutlal Shah to face a public trial. The lawmaker stated bluntly, “They have not only damaged Kerala’s reputation, but they have also insulted the women of the state.”
Mr Awhad further said, “They had said 32,000 women from Kerala had gone missing and joined the terrorist group ISIS, but the real figure is three. The film is peddling fiction and the producer should be hanged in public.”
Adah Sharma, Yogita Bihani, Sonia Balani, and Siddhi Idnani appear in Sudipto Sen’s film The Kerala Story, which is aimed for general audiences. Three ladies from Kerala who converted to Islam and joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) are the subject of the movie’s plot. Because it incorrectly claimed that thousands of women from Kerala were being converted to Islam and recruited into ISIS, the Vipul Amrutlal Shah-produced movie courted controversy.
