A special show of the film was screened at Kairali Theatre, which was followed by a media meet at Thiruvananthapuram Press Club. The people behind the film, including Prakash Bare, Sharbani, Priyanandan, Thampi Antony and writer KP Ramanunni were present.
Sharbani Mukherjee, who plays Karthi was the cynosure of all eyes, looking smashing in a Kerala sari. Sharbani said: I could connect to Karthi despite coming from a different milieu, background and period. I had read the novel which helped me prepare for the role and I did not have any pre-conceived notion which helped me to connect to my character very well. Even after the completion of the film, Karthi has not left me.
The producer and hero of the film Prakash Bare said: This film reminds us that we have a culture of commonality to showcase against the hardliners. It is also part of a new wave of renaissance in the Malayalam film industry.
Added Thampi Antony: `Sufi Paranja Katha` is neither an art film nor a commercial film but a popular film that tells the story of an extra-ordinary woman.
