The movie caught a lot of attention some not in a good way! Hence, resulting in director’s getting Y category security by the central government, said news agency ANI.
Vivek Agnihotri, the director recognized for films such as ‘Hate story’, ‘Tashkent Files’, ‘Buddha In Traffic’ now creating buzz on box office for ‘The Kashmir Files’ has been given ‘Y’ category CRPF protection amid conflicts and criticism over film.
Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi, Darshan Kumaar, and others starrer film was released in theatres on 11th of March. The feature film is based on the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus from the Kashmir valley during the height of terrorism, and has received unprecedented government support.
The Multi-starrer is riding on overwhelming government support and tax breaks from several states across the country (in most BJP ruled states) including Uttar Pradesh, Tripura, Goa, Haryana, Gujarat, and Uttarakhand. The controversial film has become a runaway box office success, with box office receipts approaching Rs. 100 crores. It's also gotten a lot of flak because the government is putting its weight behind a commercial film for the first time. Furthermore, due to the sensitive political nature of the film and claims of inaccuracy/deliberate fabrication of facts, the government has been accused of engaging in propaganda.
The Non-fiction is grabbing a lot of media attention, some of which is creating a series of violent instances where people aren’t accepting of the facts shown in the film and are conducting disturbances in various movie theatres and places. Some people are of the mindset that instead of doing good, the film has created a divide among various communities disrupting the harmony, examples of which can be seen flooding on the social media.
Amid this chaos, Prime Minister Narendra Modi emerged as a strong believer of ‘striking while the iron is still hot’, following which he saw the film as a golden opportunity to outshine his opponents; supporting the film, making it tax-free and stating that those who are going against it are the ones who are trying to prevent the truth from coming out in front of the public.
