Criticism comes as a follow-up thing whenever you’re in a creative field. There’s always someone who is not impressed with your work no matter what you do. Well, actor Adah Sharma faced a similar thing when she did The Kerala Story. The movie was one of the blockbuster films of 2023 and yet Adah faced some harsh criticism from people. Speaking about the same with Bollywood Bubble, Adah said that she feels like laughing at it now.

Adah exclusively told us, “Some critic who gave- I feel like laughing at it- minus something stars to The Kerala Story and said the movie is horrible and everything. But then they said there was no need to take Adah for it.

Adah Sharma on people calling The Kerala Story a propaganda movie

Those who want to call it propaganda will and they should be allowed to because our country celebrates freedom of speech, freedom of emotions, and freedom of thought. If we have the freedom to make a film, someone else has the freedom to not like it. First, when The Kerala Story was released, I used to be like first, you watch and then voice out your opinions. But then I also realised that I don’t have the right to force anyone to watch my film. Even without watching it, if you want to not like it, it’s your thing. You’re allowed to call it propaganda if that’s what you want to do. I can’t change your dialogue, I can’t change how you think or speak. I’m glad we could make this film,” she told us.

Talking about the Bastar story, the 1920 actor said, “This is based on a true life incident. It’s about 76 of our jawans who got killed by people in our own country. Usually, you have people from outside your country, and enemies entering, these are people who are in your own country. It’s a heart-wrenching film.
