of NDTV Report According to, a bench of Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha has issued notices to West Bengal and Tamil Nadu. The Government of Tamil Nadu has not banned the film. The theater owners there have decided not to screen the film as there could be a law and order problem. To this the makers of the film claimed in court that there was a “de facto ban” in Tamil Nadu as well.
During the hearing, Senior Advocate Abhishek Singhvi appeared on behalf of the Government of West Bengal. Citing intelligence inputs, he claimed that there could be a law and order problem. The court also sought to know about the security provided to cinema halls screening the film in Tamil Nadu. The court said that when theaters are attacked, the government cannot ignore it. The next hearing in the case will be on Wednesday, May 17.
Significantly, the West Bengal government had banned ‘The Kerala Story’ saying that it has banned the film’s release to maintain law and order in the state, to avoid any incident of hatred or violence. This film of director Sudipto Sen is in controversy. The biggest debate is on the fact that 32,000 women in Kerala were forced to convert to Islam. After this she joined the terrorist organization ISIS. Organizations and people opposing the film are calling this figure false.
