The Kashmir Files is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language film written and directed by Vivek Agnihotri and produced by Abhishek Agarwal starring Mithun Chakraborty and Anupam Kher. The film tells the story of exodus of Kashmiri Hindus in the early 1990's due to Kashmir Insurgency. The film was set to release theatrically worldwide on 26 January 2022, coinciding with India's Republic Day, [2] but was postponed due to Omicron variant spread.[3] Now, the film is scheduled to release on 11 March 2022.[4]

Production[edit]

After the success of The Tashkent Files,[5] director Vivek Agnihotri finished the script of Kashmir files after an extensive research on exodus of Kashmiri Hindus in 1990. Agnihotri stationed at an undisclosed location in the Himalayas, completed the script. On 14 August 2019, Agnihotri announced the film with its first look poster saying, "the film will be an honest investigation into one of the biggest human tragedies".[6][7] Actor Anupam Kher joined the cast as the lead actor of the film in May 2020. The first schedule of the film was called off due the coronavirus outbreak.[8]

Later Agnihotri removed actor Yograj Singh from the film after his speech against Hindus at farmer's protest[9] and brought in Puneet Issar as replacement.[10] Mithun Chakraborty fell ill due to stomach infection during second schedule, but completed his portion few hours later.[11][12] A line producer, Sarahna died during the production by allegedly committing suicide.[13] During the final phase of shooting, director Agnihotri fractured his leg on the set.[14]

Wikipedia[edit]

  1. User who calls out the bias is dismissed and accused of doing Original research (OR) [1] [archive]
  2. User correctly notes " exodus not always means forced migration by violence. What happened is forced migration. Ethnic cleansing is correct word" [archive] but gets reverted [2] [archive]
  3. Wikipedia user makes fun of death threats against the film director [3] [archive] but the same user then starts to claim there are real life consequences against those criticizing the film [4] [archive]
  4. When there are threats by Islamists, the 'Islamist threat' angle is missing or ignored [5] [archive] [6] [archive] (for alleged threats by Hindus, this would of course never happen)
