B-town actor Kangana Ranaut called the ban on ‘The Kerala Story’ unconstitutional.
Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut denounced the ban placed on the leading lady of Adah Sharma, The Kerala Story. The Dhakad actor called it ‘unconstitutional’. Directed by Sudipto Sen, The Kerala Story has divided the political debate in the nation ever since it tells the story of Kerala women who were forced to join the Islamic State (IS) and were recruited as fighters.
According to a Hindustan Times report, Kangana told reporters in Haridwar: “Banning a film, which has been approved by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), is tantamount to insulting the constitution. The banning of The Kerala Story by of some states is not correct.” Furthermore, he noted, “When a film is approved by the censorship board, which is a government body, then it should not be opposed.”

Ranaut noted, “When a movie like The Kerala Story is made, people’s complaints are redressed… Such movies help the film industry. Movies, which people like to watch and appreciate, only benefit the industry.” People always have grievances with the Bollywood film industry, like the kind of movies they want to see, such movies are not made and once they are made, they are appreciated by a mass audience.”
On May 18, the High Court stayed the West Bengal government’s order banning the film in the state. The court also asked Tamil Nadu to ensure the safety of moviegoers. The high court ordered the creators to give a disclaimer regarding the unsubstantiated figure of ‘32,000’ mentioned in the film.
On the professional front, Kangana is currently preparing for her upcoming movie Emergency. The actor will put himself in the shoes of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi for the upcoming film. Apart from Emergency, he also has Chandramukhi 2, Tejas and Sita-The Incarnation.
