We have witnessed films like RRR and KGF 2 creating sensation at the Hindi Box
Office which are made in the south. However, there is one Bollywood film which
has created a storm at the box office. We are talking about Vivek Agnihotri’s
‘The Kashmir Files’ based on the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus during the
insurgency in 1990. It has collected around 340 Cr worldwide. Its the only
Bollywood film released post pandemic and has reached 300Cr club. In a recent
Interview, director Vivek Agnihotri has talked about Akshay Kumar praising his

Vivek Agnihotri has even shared Akshay Kumar’s video and thanked him for
apprecating his film.

work but The Kashmir Files did).
He further added “Ek aadmi ne mujhe message nahi kiya…Sablog apni film promote
karne jaate hai aur media waalein unse Kashmir Files ke baare mein puch lete
hai. Toh unhe majboori mein kuch bolna padhta hai. Par apne mann se kisine
kuch nahi bola.”(No one texted me, everyone has been asked about ‘The Kashmir
Files’ by media at different events when they were promoting their respective
films so they praised it but they did not do it from the heart.)
