INDIA: The Kashmiri Files is based on the true story of the excruciating genocide of Kashmiri Hindus in the 1990s, which resulted in the forced exodus of thousands of Hindus from their homeland. The film is written and directed by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, who has previously directed notable films such as Buddha in a Traffic Jam (2016) and The Tashkent Files (2019). Among his works, The Tashkent Files was a smash hit.
The film’s ensemble cast includes National Awardee winners Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, and Pallavi Joshi. It also stars prominent actors such as Prakash Belawadi, Puneet Issar, Chinmay Mandlekar, Darshan Kumaar, Bhasha Sumbli, Amaan Iqbal, Mrinal Kulkarni, Prithviraj Sarnaik, and Atul Srivastava.
After a long delay due to pandemics, the film will finally be released on 26th January 2022. In anticipation of the release, the film has published character motion posters. Which stars Anupam Kher as Pushkar Nath Pandit, Mithun Chakraborty as Brahma Dutt, Pallavi Joshi as Radhika Menon, Darshan Kumaar as Krishna Pandit, Chinmay Mandlekar as Farooq Malik, Bhasha Sumbli as Sharda Pandit, Prithviraj Sarnaik as Shiva Pandit, Atul Srivastava as Vishnu, Prakash Belawadi as Dr. Mahesh Kumar, Puneet Issar as DGP Hari Narain and Mrinal Kulkarni as Laxmi Dutt.
What does her character in Kashmiri Files mean?
As The Kashmiri Files’ premiere date approaches, the filmmakers are releasing posters one by one, building anticipation for the trailer. Another well-known actor, Bhasha Sumbli, has joined the cast as Sharda Pandit. Her character is Pushkar Nath Pandit’s daughter-in-law, who lost her husband in the genocide in the 1990s. She now lives with her father-in-law and two sons, who could be Krishna Pandit (Darshan Kumaar) and Karan Pandit (Amaan Iqbal).
Bhasha Sumbli is well-known for her work as an assistant director in Chhapaak (2020). Her acting abilities are bolstered by the fact that she is also a theatrical performer. Above all, she is a Kashmiri Hindu, which will provide additional reality to the film’s storyline. That will finally reflect credit to her character as well as the plot of the film, allowing the audience to connect with her role on a performance level.
