Basking in the success of his recent theatrical release “The Kashmir Files,” director Vivek Agnihotri seems to be in a fix. The movie is getting mixed responses from the public. One school of opinion lauds the director for finally showing the naked truth about the atrocity of Kashmiri Pandits in the early 1990s.
While the second opinion says that the movie is a part of propaganda and was made to spread venom against Indian Muslims. Amid this, Vivek Agnihotri is getting death threats.
Recently, in an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Vivek has shared an incident that happened in his office. He talked about how two people forcefully barged inside his Mumbai office. Luckily, both Vivek and Pallavi were not present; otherwise, who knows what could have happened.
At the time of the incident, Vivek’s manager and a middle-aged woman were present in the office. The two unknown people enquired about the director and fled after that.
Because of the ominous threats to his life, the Ministry of Home Affairs had previously awarded the director “Y” category security. Now, at least seven to eight CRPF commandos will follow Vivek wherever he will go for his safety.
The movie has been a hot topic since the day it was announced. Even before the release of “The Kashmir Files,” Vivek Agnihotri was getting hordes of calls and messages to stop the film’s release. In that event, the 48-year-old director deactivated his Twitter account.
The Kashmir Files Box office Report
Coming to the business at the box office, “The Kashmir Files” has minted over 200 crores. The film has entered the 200 crore club in less than two weeks of its release. Touted as the biggest grosser in the post-pandemic era, The Kashmir Files sells like the hot cakes in cinemas.
The movie has broken several records. Recently it has broken the record of Uri: The Surgical Strike and has become The most profitable Hindi Film ever since 2013.
Did anybody think Kashmir Files would leave behind the biggies such as “Bachchhan Pandey” and “Radhe Shyam“? The success of TKF has proved that now the real power is in the hands of the public. But, unfortunately, the star-studded cast or the big-budget can not promise you success in the film industry.
