Soon after its release, ‘The Kashmir Files’ was declared tax free in several states like Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka and Gujarat to name a few. ‘The Kashmir Files’ is directed by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri and narrates the heart wrenching story of the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in 1990s. The film stars Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi and Darshan Kumar in pivotal roles. Enjoying a glorious run at the box office, ‘The Kashmir Files’ has earned approximately Rs 160 crore in less than two weeks.
Vivek Agnihotri was recently granted ‘Y’ category security with CRPF cover pan India by the Ministry of Home Affairs, after the filmmaker claimed threat to his life after the release of ‘The Kashmir Files’. Before the film’s release, Vivek Agnihotri had also deactivated his Twitter account, stating that he was receiving death threats . He had shared on social media, “My DM was filled with vulgar and threatening messages (by you know who). It’s not that I can’t handle such elements, but it seemed there were many Pakistani & Chinese bots. However tough you may be, it’s mentally testing to be surrounded by such intense hate and threats for your family. For what? Making an honest film on the pain and sufferings of our Kashmiri brothers & sisters? Is that why they are rattled that the truth may come out? The ugly world of social media has given the power to a lot of evil elements. And our silence gives them hope to succeed. TheKashmirFiles breaks that silence. Loud and clear.”
