The film 'The Kerala Story' is already in discussion before its release. Fierce debate has started in the political corridors regarding this film. According to the makers of the film, 'The Kerala Story', written and directed by Sudipto Sen, reveals the incidents behind the 32,000 women who allegedly went missing in Kerala. The film claims that these missing women were radicalized and deployed in various terrorist missions in India and around the world. At the same time, many people and political parties are questioning these figures shown in the film. Now recently actor and lawyer C Shukkur has rejected the claim made in the film. Not only this, he has also offered a reward to the person giving the evidence.

The film 'The Kerala Story' has sparked a political debate in the state over its factual basis and the issue of freedom of expression. Meanwhile, Muslim lawyer and actor C Shukkur has also questioned the figures of the film. Shukkur says that if someone proves that 32 women also joined the terrorist organization IS after religious conversion, then he will give a reward of Rs 11 lakh.

C Shukkur has said in a Facebook post, 'I will give Rs 11 lakh to those who give me the names and addresses of women who were converted to Islam by Muslim youths of Kerala and made members of the Islamic State. No one needs to produce evidence for 32,000 women, just 32 is enough. Also, he said that only one such case has come to light from Kerala, in which three women married two brothers and joined ISIS from outside the Muslim community.

Shukkur said in his post, 'One should stop blaming a community and a state without any evidence regarding the Love Jihad case. It was also rejected by the High Court. Please tell that C Shukkur is known for playing the role of a lawyer in Kunchacko Boban starrer film 'Nana Than Kes Kodu' (Sue me again). Shukkur has also remarried his wife under the Special Marriage Act (SMA), after which his name started being discussed a lot.
