The Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri

An FIR has been lodged against Vivek Agnihotri, the director of The Kashmir Files after he stated in an interview that Bhopalis are frequently mistaken for homosexuals.

A complaint has been filed by a 27-year-old PR Manager Rohit Pandey at Versova Police Station. The complainant is from Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, and has requested that an urgent FIR be filed in the case.

What is Vivek Agnihotri’s Bhopalis remark?

Vivek Agnihotri in an old interview said people often presume Bhopalis are homosexuals because of their nawabi urges.

Agnihotri previously stated in an interview that he grew up in Bhopal but is not a Bhopali because the term has a different connotation. He went on to say that we should meet in private and that he would explain everything. He continued, in general, Bhopalis are homosexuals. “If someone calls himself a Bhopali, it generally means that person is a homosexual, someone with nawabi fantasies”, he said.
