However, it hasn’t been a smooth journey for “The Kerala Story,” as it faced scrutiny and controversy for its bold portrayal of sensitive subjects like religious conversions, ISIS, and love jihad. The film’s release initially faced a ban in West Bengal, and several theaters in Tamil Nadu declined to screen it, intensifying the challenges it faced.
