One of the crew member of the movie 'The Kerala Story' has received a threatening message from an unknown number, according to Mumbai Police.
The Adah Sharma-starrer movie has been directed by Sudipto Sen and was released in theatres on 5 May.
'The Kerala Story' narrates the ordeal of three women who are trafficked to ISIS camps after being converted to Islam through marriage.
Sudipto Sen had informed the police that one of the crew members received a message from an unknown number.
According to the police, the message threatened the said person not to step out alone from home and that they didn't do a good thing by showing the story.
The crew member has been reportedly provided security. However, no FIR has been registered yet as the Police is yet to receive a written complaint.
Meanwhile, the Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal on Monday (8 May) banned the film, citing "maintenance of peace" and to avoid incidents of "hatred and violence" in the state.
On the decision to ban the film, Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, "It is to avoid any incident of hatred and violence, and maintain peace in the state," reports NDTV.
