A real-life story of a Muslim couple from Kalikavu village of Nilambur, Malappuram district of Kerala, who raised three children of their deceased Hindu housemaid along with her own three, is now a feature film in Malayalam language being shown across theaters and the OTT platforms.
The film, Ennu Swantham Sreedharan (With Love, Sreedharan’), was premiered at Edapally on January 9. Made by renowned filmmaker Siddik Paravoor, the film is being talked about and appreciated for the extraordinary strength and courage of conviction of Subaida.
It’s named after Sreedharan, the youngest of the children of Chakki, who worked as a housemaid with Subaida some 50 years ago. It was Sreedharan’s post on Facebook after Subaida’s death in 2019 where he addressed her as Umma, a Kerala Muslim way of calling a mother that generated curiosity about this relationship and eventually, it became public knowledge that a practicing Muslim couple had raised three Hindu children along with their biological children and never converted them.
