Adah Sharma on questions being raised about factual authenticity
When asked if questions about the factual authenticity of The Kerala Story as an artist make you question the content. Adah Sharma said: “The factual evidence they have on the number will be released shortly. They didn’t want to do it before. Also because when you do it before, people will say ‘Oh, now you’re doing propaganda to promote this movie.’ Now this movie has broken all records, and crossed everything, despite facing criticism. Even though people say it’s propaganda.” Adah further added: “The first people said that it is elections. Then 2 weeks passed, the third week was better, all that happened, then people said there was propaganda. Then they saw real girls come there, so they were like ‘oh, maybe it’s fake numbers’.”
Speaking about the fake numbers, Adah Sharma revealed: “At first I found it really annoying. It really shocked me because I was like human lives that we are talking about. In the beginning, I used to get so hyper that human life is so cheap that we can put it in numbers because it’s not just one person that’s our person in that stat. As soon as it’s your sister or your mom or your girlfriend or your friend in that stat, I don’t think people are talking about 3 or 32. That’s why we had that conference where those girls came and told their stories. .”
