Vipul Shah discusses why The Kerala Story got less screens

The Kerala Story film was initially banned from screening in West Bengal, leading to legal cases filed by the producers.

Supreme Court lifted the ban and directed the state government to remove bans and ensure security arrangements to guarantee safety for moviegoers.

The film's trailer caused controversy, claiming that 32,000 women went missing in Kerala and were forced to join the terrorist group ISIS.

Due to backlash, filmmakers withdrew the figure and adjusted the trailer description.

State government of West Bengal initially imposed the ban for fear of causing breach of peace.

Vipul said, "Supreme Court has lifted the ban. Beyond this, we will not be able to go onto the streets and fights with goons of these parties.”
