Actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee shared her thoughts on the film “The Kerala Story” in a tweet. He replied to a post about a woman who allegedly broke up with her boyfriend after watching the film. Directed by Sudipto Sen, the film has been the talk of the town ever since its trailer released last month. Devoleena, who tied the knot with her gym trainer Shanawaz Sheikh last year, revealed that she watched the film with him and he “appreciated” it.

Taking to Twitter, Devoleena wrote, “It doesn’t always happen. My husband is a Muslim and came to see the film with me and he appreciated it. He didn’t take it as an offense nor did he feel it was against his religion.” . And I think every Indian should be like that. He used the hashtag ‘The Kerala Story’. Check out the tweet here:

She replied to a post that read, “My colleague’s friend Nidhi was having an affair,” read the tweet she replied to. She casually asked her boyfriend to watch Kerala Story. He not only refused but also abused her and accused her of being Islamophobic. She got scared and asked her bf why he is so rude and how can he be Islamophobic when she is dating a Muslim. Her bf replied that if she is not islamophobic then she should convert to islam and marry him. He agreed. But, she still wanted to see the film. So, she went to see the movie with my friend. Right after the film, she called her bf and broke up. The story of Kerala is having the same effect on the society. That’s why they want to ban the film. Everyone is awake (sic).”

The Kerala Story stars Adah Sharma, Yogita Bihani, Siddhi Idnani and Sonia Balani in lead roles. It revolves around the stories of Hindu women from Kerala who were converted to Islam and trafficked to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
