After the “Sleeper Hit” “The Tashkent Files”; Vivek Agnihotri’s next “The Kashmir Files”, is an honest investigation to the Kashmiri Pundit’s issues; cinematographing first hand testimonials of the victims and perpetrators.
Where Vivek Agnihotri’s “The Tashkent Files” persists its GOLDEN RUN in theaters, his next “The Kashmir Files”, an honest investigation on Kashmiri Pundit’s issue, is soon to get reeled and quake big screens. The film-maker plans to visit all the places in Kashmir and other places in the world where Kashmiri Pundits have been seeking refuge; opting to record the first hand testimonials of victims and perpetrators.
The film-maker shared his views on his next venture saying; “Since a very long time, I have been wanting to make a film on the Kashmir issue and after the success of “The Tashkent files”, I have got the confidence that I am matured enough to handle a sensitive subject like this.”
He added, “Kashmiri Pundits Exodus from 1991 is the biggest human tragedy, the biggest ethnic cleansing and mass exodus of a community with violence. Kashmiri pundits are homeless in their own country. This is the 7th exodus of Kashmiri pundits from Kashmir – their home. Since the WW2 there hasn’t been such a violent and barbaric ethnic cleansing anywhere in the world.”
“This is India’s holocaust where at midnight the minorities (Hindus) were asked to leave the valley and they were specifically asked to leave behind all their property and women. Children were killed with AK47, women were raped and men were cut with wood cutting saw. Houses were burnt. India’s most secular region was converted into an Islamic Region controlled with Sharia law. My film is about the sinister politics behind it. Everyone is responsible for such tragedy. My film is about that,” he concluded.
“We had been researching for the last one year and now we are planning to form a ‘Project KP Commission’ where we will record first hand testimonials of the victims and also the perpetrators. This will be first of its kind effort in this issue anywhere in the world. I want a fair and unbiased investigation so that we can correct the prejudiced narrative.”- Vivek Agnihotri
