The movie ‘The Kerala Story’ has become one of the biggest box office hits of the year, making over Rs 241 crores around the world. Adah Sharma, who plays the main character, is thrilled with how well the movie did and says she’s looking forward to all the good projects that are coming her way. She likes that she can choose from different parts, and she’s looking forward to making people laugh with her future work.
But ‘The Kerala Story’ has gotten some bad reviews, and some people have said that it is just advertising. Adah Sharma says that there was confusion before the movie came out and that she is aware of the debate that surrounded it. She says that the movie is about a group of terrorists who have become radicalised, and that people who saw it knew what it was about and what it meant. But there were some people who didn’t watch it and still thought it was a biassed movie. Adah Sharma sees this as the beauty of freedom of speech and stresses that she can’t force people to watch the movie or change their minds.
Even though there was criticism, Adah Sharma is glad that people still went to see the movie, even though some famous people had tweeted bad things about it. She says that the audience’s support comes from the fact that they live in Bharat, where freedom of speech is important.
Adah Sharma laughs off the idea that she worries about being labelled based on the arguments between right-wing, liberal, and secular groups on social media. She says that once people watched ‘The Kerala Story,’ they saw that it wasn’t politics. The movie is about the lives of four girls who don’t care about politics. Adah Sharma says that terrorism has nothing to do with faith and that no Indian supports it. She makes it clear that the girls in the movie fall in love and take a risky path that has nothing to do with politics.
Adah Sharma knows that over-the-top (OTT) apps have an effect on the entertainment industry. She thinks that now is the best time for people to show off their skills because OTT has opened doors for actors, writers, technicians, and directors from all parts of the business. She says that mediocrity will always be around, but the rise of OTT has made room for excellence to grow, which should worry people who make mediocre material.
Adah Sharma says that even though big stars and producers haven’t congratulated her on social media, many people in the industry have reached out to her privately to do so. She talks about a time when a famous director talked to her about every part of her act. This made her feel very moved. She says that she can’t make people talk about her on social media, and she also thinks that the silence of those who saw the movie is important because it may show how dark and serious the movie was.
In short, Adah Sharma is very happy about the success of ‘The Kerala Story’ and the chances it has given her. She talks about the criticism and controversy about the movie and stresses the value of freedom of speech and support from the audience. Adah Sharma says that the movie can’t be put into a box and explains that it has nothing to do with politics. She talks about the good things that OTT platforms have done for the industry and thanks industry experts for their personal messages. Overall, she respects the magic of the public’s support and the power of silence as a response to the intense content of the film.
