How Prakash Raj reacted to The Kashmir Files. Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files is a 2022 Indian Hindi-language drama film written and directed by him. The film, produced by Zee Studios, is based on the departure of Kashmiri Pandits during the Kashmir Insurgency, which it portrays as genocide through a fictitious scenario.
Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumar, Pallavi Joshi, and Mithun Chakraborty star. The film was released in theatres on March 11, 2022.
An Uttar Pradesh resident filed public interest litigation (PIL) seeking a stay on the film’s release on the grounds that the film may portray Muslims as killers of Kashmiri Pandits, presenting what it described as a one-sided view that would hurt Muslims’ sentiments and could spark violence against Muslims.
The Bombay High Court rejected the PIL on the grounds that the filer should have challenged the Central Board of Film Certification’s certificate for the film.
The picture was a box office triumph, although it received mixed reviews from critics.
