Vivek Agnihotri has been in the eye of a hurricane ever since The Kashmir Files has been released. While many people are shocked, horrified and shaken seeing the trauma of the Kashmiri Hindu Pandits that has been portrayed in the film, others have slammed it as a propaganda film. They have highlighted that it was not just Kashmiri Hindu Pandits but also people from other religions including Muslims who died in the thousands during the militancy. They have slammed the one-sided narrative of the movie. They have also raised concerns on how the film is further polarizing society. A Bhopal-based IAS officer Niyaz Khan wrote on Twitter that if Vivek Agnihotri is so concerned about the plight of Kashmiri Hindu Pandits then he should donate the money from the box office collections to the welfare of the displaced community.
Income of Kashmir Files reached 150 crore. Great.People have given a lot of respect for Kashmiri Brahmins’ feelings.I would respect film producer to transfer all earnings to the Brahmin children’s education and construction of homes for them in Kashmir. It will be a great charity
