Vivek Agnihotri in news over The Kashmir Files
The Kashmir Files was released on March 11. The film made waves after it became one of the highest-grossing films in Bollywood this year. Many said that it was polarising, however, it did manage to pull the crowd to the theaters as it washed out many popular films that were released in direct competition with it.
The Kashmir Files is based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in the early 1990s and how it led to the relion-based killings. It stars Anupam Kher, Pallavi Joshi, Darshan Kumar and others in important roles and is currently available for streaming on ZEE5.
