INDIA: Amid The Kashmir Files’ box office success, Bollywood celebs are now reacting to Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri’s masterpiece. After Akshay Kumar remarked on Anupam Kher’s performance, Yami Gautam has directly expressed her thoughts on The Kashmir Files.
Yami Gautam’s comments on the Kashmir files have caused quite a stir. Whereas previously, every Bollywood star remained silent about the film, now, following its box office triumph, Bollywood stars are giving their thoughts on The Kashmir Files.
Earlier this year, the talented actress married Aditya Dhar. He is well known for directing URI: The Surgical Strike (2019), and he comes from a Kashmir Pandit family. As a result, these Bollywood pairs were expected to demonstrate their support for The Kashmir Files. Aditya Dhar referenced Anupam Kher and Vivek Agnihotri in a tweet. He tweeted, “Being a filmmaker myself; I couldn’t have made a better film than this on my tragedy. Hats off to @vivekagnihotri & @AnupamPKher Ji. Please watch the tragic TRUE story of one of India’s most patriotic and loyal communities.”
He added further, “You might have seen numerous videos of Kashmiri Pandits breaking down in the theatres after watching #TheKashmirFiles.The emotion is real. It shows how long we kept our pain and tragedy repressed as a community. We didn’t have any shoulder to cry on and no ear to hear our pleas.”
Yami Gautam expressed her gratitude for the film. She tweeted, “Being married to a Kashmiri Pandit, I know first hand of the atrocities that this peace-loving community has gone through. But the majority of the nation is still unaware. It took us 32 years and a film to get to know the truth. Please watch and support #TheKashmirFiles.”
The Kashmir Files is based on 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.
