The Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners Association has stopped screening the movie ‘The Kerala Story’ due to poor collections and the need to maintain law and order in the state. The movie claims to portray the story of some women from Kerala who were recruited by terror outfit IS. The decision to stop the screening of the movie across Tamil Nadu was taken on Sunday. Joint Secretary of Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners Association, Trichy, Sridhar, stated that they want to protect their theatres and the interests of their audience.
Reasons for Stopping the Screening
The poor collections on the second day of the movie’s release, as well as the need to maintain law and order in the state, were the reasons for stopping the screening of the movie in Tamil Nadu. The decision was taken to safeguard the interests of theatre owners and the audience.
Reaction from Politicians
The BJP Vice President in Tamil Nadu, Narayanan Thirupathy, condemned the move of the Tamil Nadu government to remove the movie from all theatres, citing their inability to legally ban the film in the state. On the other hand, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee decided to ban the movie in her state due to a “threat to law and order.”
