Mammootty's Kuttyshranku by Shaji N karun has gone under the axe, wit the Kollam sub court issuing prohibition orders on the screening of some scenes of the movie. Some of the scenes from the movie were shot in the 'Kalari" and 'Sarpakavu" of the Azhakathu family at Chavara, Kerala.
In a petition filed by A.R. Chandrasekhara Kurup and the other members of the Azhakathu family, they have claimed to have been hurt by the scenes shot on the dieties placed in the 'Kalari' and 'Sarpakavu'. The family alleged that their religious sentiments and beliefs were hurt due to this and that they wanted those scenes to be deleted from the movie as well. The court which enquired into the petition ruled for an elimination of those scenes
Kuttyshranku, the first Malayalam movie to be produced by Reliance Entertainment, Anil Ambani's newly-launched entertainment company stars Kamalinee Mukherjee, Padmapriya, Meenakumari, Saikumar, Siddique and others in key roles.
