Talking about the idea of the museum, the CM said in a statement to the media, “I thank Vivek ji for bringing the pain of our Kashmiri brothers and sisters in front of the world.”
“The movie, as Vivek Ji said and I also agree, is not aimed at spreading hatred, but to bring out the truth so that no other area becomes Kashmir,” he added referring to the filmmaker’s comments on his directorial.
‘The Kashmir Files’ is based on the Kashmiri Pandit exodus in the 1990s, which debuted on the bigscreen on March 11. Ever since then, the film has been minting big figures at the Box Office.
Apart from grabbing attention with its massive success at the Box Office, it recently sparked controversy when severl BJP-ruled states, including Madhya Pradesh, exempted ‘The Kashmir Files’ from tax.
