About The Kashmir Files

Stars like Anupam Kher, Pallavi Joshi and Mithun Chakraborty have played lead roles. The Kashmir Files did good business. It earned more than Rs 290 crore at the box office.

When PM Modi hailed The Kashmir Files

Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised the film in the BJP parliamentary party meeting. He had said that such films should continue to be made as the truth is revealed through them. Efforts have been made to suppress the truth about Kashmir which is shown in the film.

Countries that banned The Kashmir Files

New Zealand

The film has been banned in New Zealand. The film was earlier approved for release with an A certificate, but after a review on the demand of the Muslim community, the censor board decided to ban the film.

Singapore

Vivek Agnihotri’s film was about to be released in Singapore, but the film was banned by the censor board there. After this news came, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor took a jibe at Vivek Agnihotri and at the BJP.

He said that the film has a one-sided portrayal of the wrong image of Muslims and the persecution of Hindus in the ongoing conflict in Kashmir. The film has the potential to create enmity between several communities and harm brotherhood.
