According to the makers, "The Kerala Story" unearths the events behind approximately 32,000 women going missing in the Indian southern state of Kerala who are converted, radicalised and deployed in terror missions in India and the world. Earlier, the release of the movie teaser with this claim had received flak.

Kerala Director general of police Anil Kant directed the Thiruvananthapuram city police commissioner to register FIR. The direction was based on a complaint sent to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. A High Tech Crime Enquiry Cell had conducted a preliminary enquiry and a report was sent to DGP.

Opposition and Congress leader VD Satheesan called the teaser of 'The Kerala Story' as a "clear case of misinformation" and claimed that the film is made to "tarnish the image of Kerala" in front of other states while also alleging that it is a "Sangh Parivar agenda".

In a press note issued Monday, the makers announced the release date with a poster that shows a burqa clad woman with a tagline 'uncovering the truth that was kept hidden'.

"The Kerala Story" is backed by Sunshine Pictures Private Limited, founded by Vipul Amrutlal Shah, who serves as the producer, creative director and co-writer on the film. PTI
