Shikara is based on the horrific exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from their homeland in 1990. The film depicts the pain and trauma of exodus from your own land through a love story between the leads- Aadil Khan and Sadia. The film was surrounded by controversy before its release after a plea was filed in the Jammu and Kashmir High Court demanding a stay on the release of Shikara. However, the release wasn't stalled, and it hit the theatres today (February 7)
A special screening of Shikara was held on January 19 to mark the 30 years of Kashmiri exodus. Shikara has also been shot in the real locations of the Kashmir valley with over 4000 real Kashmiri Pandits who face the exodus.
