On Monday, the film’s production house Sunshine Pictures said The Kerala Story touched £20 million at the domestic box office.
Last week, a special screening of The Kerala Story was organised at the main theatre of the Pune-based Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) amid a protest by some students. Despite the heavy police force deployed at the venue, FTII Students’ Association (FTIISA) staged a protest claiming the student community was not informed about the show.
Produced by Vipul Shah, The Kerala Story depicts how women from Kerala were forced to convert and recruited by the terror group Islamic State (IS).
Apart from Adah, the film also stars Yogita Bihani, Sonia Balani, and Siddhi Idnani in prominent roles.
