Meanwhile, in a recent interview with Rediffmail, Adah Sharma spoke about ‘The Kerala Story’ and asserted it’s not just a film, it's a movement'.
She was quoted saying, “I meet young girls who find The Kerala Story cool. I bump into young boys who have seen the film four-five times already and are rattling off the dialogues, outlining specific scenes. The Kerala Story is no longer just another film, it's become a movement.”
Adah also talked about meeting and interacting with girls who lived the horror that people watched in the film. “I did meet some very brave girls who are giving interviews about their ordeal. Of course, not the girl I play in the film because Shalini is still in jail in Afghanistan. I thought the testimonial in Malayalam, of the mother whose daughter had hanged herself, was really touching at the end of the film,” she further said.
