'The Kashmir Files' actor Darshan Kumaar on IFFI jury head calling film 'propaganda'

‘One can't deny the fact is that The Kashmir files is a film which has depicted the actual plight of Kashmiri pandit community,’ said Darshan Kumaar.

Actor Darshan Kumaar, who played a pivotal role in the much-talked-about film ‘The Kashmir Files’, has reacted to IFFI 2022 jury head Nadav Lapid’s remark on the film. Speaking with the news agency ANI, Darshan said, ‘Everyone has their own individual opinions on anything they see and perceive. But one can't deny the fact is that The Kashmir files is a film which has depicted the actual plight of Kashmiri pandit community... who are still fighting for justice against the brutal acts of terrorism. So, this film is not on vulgarity but on reality.’

On Monday night, the Israeli filmmaker called the Vivek Agnihotri directorial ‘vulgar propaganda’ that ‘disturbed and shocked’ the entire jury. A video from the festival has gone viral online and his statement has received criticism from many people including the Israeli ambassador, actors Anupam Kher, and Ranvir Shorey.

IFFI jury has also distanced itself from Nadav Lapid’s criticism of ‘The Kashmir Files’ and said that it is ‘completely his personal opinion’.

‘The Kashmir Files’, based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley in 1990, emerged as one of the highest-grossing Hindi films of the year. It was screened at the 53rd International Film Festival in Goa last week.
