Bollywood’s biggest hits: Redeemer Church and Living Word Church – both in Kerala
The most popular movie of the year in Kerala was Redeemers Church, which grossed a whopping Rs 2,07,09,958 on a single screen in Kerala’s Birla district on Saturday.
The film is about a preacher who falls for a girl from a religious order.
The church in Kannur, where Redeemerd Church is located, had received over Rs 1 crore from the church’s devotees.
“We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from the faithful of RedeemER Church,” Rev. P.K. Prabhu said.
“The outpouring has been overwhelming and we are all very grateful for the support.”
The RedeemERS Church in Kerala has been the subject of much controversy.
In June, the Kerala government had announced a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest of the mastermind behind the attack on Redeemeri Church in December.
However, after a petition filed by the Kerala chapter of the Hindu Council of Churches, the government said it would not reward anyone involved in the attack.
