Prakash Raj launches an attack on Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files.
Vivek Agnihotri has hit back at actor Prakash Raj for calling his blockbuster film The Kashmir Files ‘nonsense’.
Actor Prakash Raj has come down heavily on filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri’s ‘The Kashmir Files’ by calling it “one of the nonsense films”. Prakash was speaking at the 2023 Mathrubhumi International Festival of Letters (MBIFL) which took place in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.
Prakash came out in support of Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan and praised the film for raking in over Rs 700 crores at the box office. He slammed boycotters for demanding a ban on the SRK movie and called them “idiots”. On the other hand, he took a sly dig at Vivek Agnihotri for wanting an Oscar for The Kashmir Files which the actor dubbed as “one of the nonsense films” at the MBIFL event. Prakash also said that international jury “spit” on the movie while referring to the controversy involving International Film Festival of India (IFFI) 2022 jury head, Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid, who called The Kashmir Files “propaganda” and “vulgar”.
Sharing Prakash’s video on his official Twitter handle, Vivek wrote, “A small, people’s film The Kashmir Files has given sleepless nights to Urban Naxals so much that one of their Pidi is troubled even after one year, calling its viewer’s barking dogs. And Mr. Andhkaar Raj, how can I get Bhaskar, she/he is all yours. Forever.”
During the closing ceremony of the IFFI 2022 in Goa, Nadav Lapid termed Vivek Agnihotri’s film “propaganda” and “vulgar,” causing a huge uproar. Later, he apologised for his remarks. However, Lapid later said that The Kashmir Files didn’t have “any inner contradictions or complexities, and is totally flat.”
