A recent tweet posted by the ANI news agency read, “The director of the movie, The Kashmir Files, Vivek Agnihotri, has been provided with the Y-category security protection with CRPF cover pan India: Government Sources.”
As per some sources, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) gave their decision once the security threat of Vivek Agnihotri by the Intelligence Bureau and other such security agencies stated their report in the DNA.
There was another report in The Indian Express that quoted one of the home ministry official’s saying,” There was an assessment that was found by the Intelligence Bureau and it clearly mentioned about the threat to his life and based on these inputs, the Y-category security has been provided to him across the country for his protection.”
The movie directed by Vivek Agnihotri has been declared to be a tax-free film in many states such as Goa, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh.
While on the other hand, the Opposition has called the movie to be a one-sided and violent one. But, when you take a look at its performance at the box office, the movie is having an outstanding run and has collected over Rs. 97.30 Crores in just seven days.
The Kashmir Files Director Vivek Agnihotri Facing Troubles
Vivek has been facing troubles and several threats to his life, his film has indeed been quite a successful one.
Though, the director and the movie itself have been reviving some very violent sloganeering from several theatres and have the critics complaining that more than having a healing effect on the audience, the movie has just become the cause for hatred between two communities.
Many social media handles were flooded with the footage of the inside and outside of movie theatres where people were seen using abusive slang for Muslims, and with this were a few people raising angry slogans with strong provocative language.
The Kashmir Files film has received quite a backlash for not being discreet and so it resulted in Vivek being provided with security protection that would help the director to be rescued if any uproar or disruption took place in his day to day life.
