The Accidental Prime Minister

Vivek Agnihotri’s directorial The Kashmir Files has been in controversy ever since it hit the silver screen. The film was recently slammed by Israel’s filmmaker Nadav Lapid at the closing ceremony of the 53rd International Film Festival of India held in Goa.

In his speech, Lapid called The Kashmir Files a vulgar, propaganda film and the jury was disturbed and shocked by its screening at IFFI. He further continued and said the film was inappropriate for an artistic competitive section of such a prestigious film festival.

Nadav Lapid’s statements on The Kashmir Files created a stir on social media and Israel’s ambassador to India Naor Gilon called his statements insensitive and presumptuous. Several noted personalities and the makers of The Kashmir Files also reacted to Lapid’s statement and condemn it.

However, this is not the first time that a film which became the highest-grossing film this year and earned more than Rs 300 crore worldwide has been criticised and tagged as a propaganda film.

Here’s a list of Bollywood films that created controversy.

The Accidental Prime Minister

Starring Anupam Kher in the lead role, The Accidental Prime Minister was inspired by the book written on the former Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh. The film was said to be the BJP’s propaganda against the Congress as Manmohan Singh was portrayed as spineless in the film.

PM Narendra Modi

Helmed by Omung Kumar, the film starred Vivek Oberoi as Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The film revolved around the political journey of PM Modi who starts off as a poor tea seller and becomes the Prime Minister of India. The film was said to be made for vote banks.

Thackrey

Featuring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Thackeray was heavily trolled as it was said to be made by Shiv Sena and glorify their political party.

Sanju

The 2018 Rajkumar Hirani film became a blockbuster hit. Starring Ranbir Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, and Anushka Sharma, the film was accused of whitewashing Sanjay Dutt’s image.

The Romantics trailer out: Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, and Aamir Khan join forces to honour YRF’s legacy

Smriti Mundhra, who previously directed Indian Matchmaking and the Never Have I Ever franchises, returns to Netflix to direct the docuseries

The Romantics tralier out: Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, and Aamir Khan team together to honour YRF's legacy

Aditya Chopra, the reclusive CEO of the venerable Yash Raj Films, has taped his first ever on-camera interview for The Romantics, a Netflix global docu-series honouring the legacy of famous director Yash Chopra, YRF, and its influence on Indian popular culture over the past 50 years!

He last conducted an interview in 1995 for a print publication. Aditya Chopra is considered as the man who formed the outlines of the business, as superstar Hrithik Roshan states in the teaser, and hearing him discuss YRF is a significant highlight for the film community, cinephiles, and the Hindi film audience at large.

Watch the trailer here:

Smriti Mundhra, who previously directed Indian Matchmaking and the Never Have I Ever franchises, returns to Netflix to direct the docuseries.

One of the top entertainment platforms in the world, Netflix, will present a four-part docuseries with 35 characters, including megastars who have frequently collaborated with YRF over the years. They will together delve into the history of Hindi cinema via the prism of YRF’s contribution to the globalisation of the industry and its prominent actors through its ground-breaking and generation-defining films.

Hindi film stars hate “Bollywood”?

The Romantics’ trailer also made clear that many famous movie stars despise the term “Bollywood,” which has been used carelessly to refer to the Hindi film industry for years. Bollywood was first used by the West to refer to Hindi cinema; it is a combination of Bombay (the former name of Mumbai) and Hollywood. The term “Bollywood” has gained popularity throughout time.

The docuseries will discuss the identity of the Hindi film business in the West and how these stars feel the name “Bollywood” excludes other film industries in India, which is why they dislike it. It will accomplish this through the words of the mega-stars of Hindi cinema.

35 actors speak on legacy of YRF

In the trailer, celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, late Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Salim Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Uday Chopra, Ranveer Singh, Abhishek Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, Manish Malhotra, Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma, Juhi Chawla, Karan Johar, Lily Singh, Ayushmann Khurrana, Madhuri Dixit and Bhumi Pednekars among others were seen talking about the legacy of YRF.

As a tribute to Yash Chopra, who is known as the “Father of Romance” in India owing to his classic romantic comedies like Silsila, Lamhe, Kabhi Kabhie, Veer-Zaara, Dil To Pagal Hai, Chandni, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, etc., The Romantics will be released on February 14, 2023.
