The Kerala Story, starring Adah Sharma, made headlines upon its release, becoming embroiled in a web of controversies. Despite facing calls for a ban, protests, and ongoing uproar, the film managed to amass a staggering 200 crores within just 18 days of its release. Directed by Sudipto Sen, the movie sheds light on the forced conversions and recruitment of Kerala women by the terrorist group Islamic State (IS).
Now Adah's co-star and friend, Vidyut Jammwal, is among the few members of the film fraternity who has celebrated the success of the film. Vidyut and Adah have worked together in Commando 2 (2017) and Commando 3 (2019). Both actioners are produced by The Kerala Story's producer, Vipul Amrutlal Shah. Vidyut took his happiness for The Kerala Story to his Twitter and wrote, "One WOMAN army. Aapni khas dost hai! @adah_sharma. I am blessed to know someone who has witnessed a miracle.. lots of love girl."
Earlier today, Adah Sharma penned a long note and claimed that the movie is the 1st female-led film to cross Rs. 200 crore. Taking to her Instagram, she wrote, "The best things in life are Unexpected - because there were no expectations. Thank you audience for making this happen. The makers of #TheKeralaStory: Vipul sir who took a huge risk in making this film without any backing from studios and for trusting the girl who played Bhavana Reddy in Commando to be Shalini Unnikrishnan. Sudipto sir for standing by his research for 7 years despite all odds, for being kind to all of us on set and who kept up his pleasant nature in all weather conditions and trials and tribulations."
