KOCHI: It looks like Rosshan Andrrews’ new flick ‘How Old Are You’ has made a huge impact on the public and the government. Influenced by the message on organic farming which is being publicised through the movie, Social Justice Minister M K Muneer on Monday announced that the state government will promote organic terrace farming through the Kudumbasree and the Kerala State Womens’ Development Corporation (KSWDC).
“We have already held discussions in this regard and we will soon promote this at the state level,” he said.
He was speaking during the inaugural ceremony of the ‘She taxi’ project which was held in Kochi on Monday. The movie which saw the comeback of actress Manju Warrier is the story of an ordinary woman who achieves success despite barriers of age put forward by the society.
“Effective methods such as organic farming should be promoted and we are thankful to the government for the initiative to promote this unique method of farming,” Manju Warrier who was present during the inauguration said. “It is a coincidence that the movie was released just two days before the inauguration of the ‘She taxi’ which promotes women empowerment,” Manju said.
Meanwhile, she said that she was overwhelmed by the response of the public who has given her sufficient support during her comeback to the film industry.
“I am ever grateful for the way the people have accepted me back wholeheartedly.
“I had not anticipated such a warm response and I take this opportunity to thank the audience,” she said.
