Taking a jibe at the film, the actress-turned-author joked about how other filmmakers are rushing to register movies titled, ‘Andheri Files’, ‘South Bombay Files’ and others to emulate the success of ‘The Kashmir Files’. She wrote, ‘In a meeting at a producer’s office, I am informed that there is a deluge of fresh movie titles being registered as homage to The Kashmir Files. Since larger cities have already been claimed, now the poor chaps are registering names like Andheri Files, Khar-Danda Files, and even South Bombay Files. I am just wondering if my colleagues can still call themselves filmmakers, or with all this filing, they, like the original nationalist, Manoj Kumar, have all turned into clerks.”
Twinkle also joked about making a movie titled, ‘Nail File’ as she mentioned the idea to her mother Dimple Kapadia. When Dimple asked if it is going to be about a disastrous manicure, Twinkle replied, ‘Maybe, but at least it’s better than putting the final nail into the communal coffin.’
‘The Kashmir Files’ is a narrative of the pain and struggles of Kashmiri Pandits, seen through the eyes of Krishna, the protagonist. The film questions eye-opening facts about democracy, religion, politics and humanity.
It stars Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi and others in key roles. The movie has been making a record-breaking business at the box office.
