After TASHKENT files Vivek Agnihotri’s next film titled The Kashmir Files BASED on Kashmiri Pandits…!
After the success of “The Tashkent Files”, which is still running has been a monumental success. It has completed 50 days and IIM-Ahmedabad has included the film in their curriculum as a case study.
Vivek Agnihotri’s next is titled “The Kashmir Files” that will be a probe on the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits. The film will be an honest investigation into one of the biggest human tragedies and will have an ensemble cast. The shoot will start in the next six months.
Talking about the same, Vivek said, “Since a very long time, I have been wanting to make a film on the Kashmir issue and after the success of The Tashkent files, I have got the confidence that I am matured enough to handle a sensitive subject like this. Kashmiri Pandits Exodus from 1991 is the biggest human tragedy, the biggest ethnic cleansing, and mass exodus of a community with violence. Kashmiri pandits are homeless in their own country”.
Talking about the research for the film, Vivek said, “We had been researching for the last one year and now we are planning to form a ‘Project KP Commission’ where we will record first hand testimonials of the victims and also the perpetrators. This will be first of its kind effort in this issue anywhere in the world. I want a fair and unbiased investigation so that we can correct the prejudiced narrative.”
The movie based on Kashmiri Pandits, who were forced to move out of Kashmir Valley in 1990 due to militancy, follows Agnihotri’s film on “The Tashkent Files”, which revolved around the mysterious death of then Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri in 1966.
