Despite the Supreme Court allowing the screening of the movie The Kerala Story in West Bengal, no cinema hall has as yet agreed to show the controversial film which was earlier banned by the state government fearing "communal disturbances".

Satadeep Saha, the distributor of the film in the state, told news agency PTI on Friday that none of the single screens and multiplexes in the state have come forward to show The Kerala Story as yet, including theatres owned by his family, as per news agency PTI.

As per the report, Sudipto at a press conference on Friday claimed he has been told by several hall owners that they have been threatened "by certain quarters" and asked not to screen the film.

The Kerala Story which was released in theatre halls on May 5, claims that women from Kerala were forced to convert to Islam and recruited by ISIS. The West Bengal government had earlier banned the movie claiming it feared communal disturbances if it was screened. So far, the film has earned 178.32 crore at the domestic box office.
