'Not scared of protests over biopic on Kamal Das' Feb 09, 2018 0 148 12345 IANSMumbaiMalayalam film director Kamal is not a worried man even though his biopic on the very fiery author-poet Kamala Das has ignited debates and protests, as well as attracted an attempt to stop the film legally for propagating"love jihad"-- a charge that Kamal vehemently denies. Aami, the film, is now ready to hit the screens on Friday, after the Kerala High Court quashed a petition against its release. Kamal wonders how the movie propagates"love jihad". "At the time when Kamala Das converted to Islam and fell in love with a Muslim, there was no concept of love jihad. This is a coinage that has gained currency in recent times. I still don't know what it means. I am thankful to the judiciary for intervening in time for my film's release,"said Kamal. He said for filmmakers like him who insist on having their say, the judiciary is the only solace."Where do we go when we are attacked? Look at what happened with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat. We still don't know what the protests were about. Before we knew it the protests spread like wildfire. After the film was somehow released it was obvious that the film was not guilty of what it was accused of doing."In fact, it was doing just the opposite. Is there any remedy or rectification for filmmakers who suffer through such baseless protests,"Kamal asked.
