The makers of The Kerala Story are returning with another bold and impactful subject through their upcoming drama film Bastar: The Naxal Story. The film too stars Adah Sharma in the lead role. As the trailer for the film was launched on March 5, the film's producer opened up on why it was essential to bring this issue before the people.

We do not want any controversy: Vipul Shah

During the trailer launch event in Raipur, Vipul talked about the film in detail and said, "We do not want any controversy. We just make films with complete truth and honesty. When Sudipto Sen showed me the complete research on Bastar I saw the date on the violence there. At that time there was a celebration in JNU. I saw a lot of other things in that research. When you see all that and on the other hand see that the intellectuals in cities are providing cover fire to the same and justifying it, you realise that 90% of the people don't know about something happening in one part of the country. I felt that it was essential to bring this issue before the people."
