Know what Nadav Lapid has to say
Further Nadav Lapid said that “I can stand on this platform and share my feelings very well, I am comfortable in it. Understand and accept such a critical comment because that’s what film festivals are held for.” Let me tell you, ‘The Kashmir Files’ was also shown in this film festival last week. Kashmir Files is directed by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri. The film, which released in theaters on March 11, revolves around the killings and exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in 1990. The film was a hit in India but was criticized by many for its propaganda tone.
‘The Kashmir Files’ was banned in Singapore
In Singapore too, ‘The Kashmir Files’ was banned, because some Muslim officials of Singapore had objections to this film. They consider it a one-sided film and reject it. Directed by Vivek Agnihotri, the film stars Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty and Pallavi Joshi in lead roles. In India, the film found support from several political parties, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. The states of the country which are ruled by the BJP had declared it tax-free.
