‘The Kashmir Files’ producer Abhishek Agarwal, actor Pallavi Joshi react to Nadav Lapid’s remark

‘The Kashmir Files’ producer Abhishek Agarwal has reacted to Nadav Lapid’s remark. He said that they have thousands of people who have gone through the holocaust.  Actor and producer Pallavi Joshi also slammed the Israeli filmmaker for his remarks.

Vivek Agnihotri’s ‘The Kashmir Files’ is making headlines after Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid called the film ‘vulgar propaganda’ at the 53rd International Film Festival of India. Now, Abhishek Agarwal, one of the producers of the movie, has posted a message for IFFI jury head on Twitter. In his tweet, he said, ‘We do not need your validation #NadavLapid we have thousands of people who have gone through this holocaust and I have met many personally seen their pain & suffering. #TheKashmirFiles #KashmirFilesISTruth. @AnupamPKher @vivekagnihotri.’

Actor and producer Pallavi Joshi also slammed Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid for his remarks. In a detailed press statement, Pallavi said that for decades the international community remained silent on the sufferings of the Kashmiri Pandit Community and after 3 decades, the Indian film industry finally realised that it needs to tell India's story truthfully and objectively.

Pallavi added that it is very unfortunate that a creative platform was used for a political agenda to preserve an old, false, and jaded narrative about Kashmir. She said they are overwhelmed by the way the people of India rose to defend ‘The Kashmir Files’ against the rude and vulgar statements of a genocide denier.

Speaking at the closing ceremony of the International Film Festival of India, Nadav said, ‘I would like to thank the head of the festival and the director of the programming for the cinematic richness of the programme, for its diversity, for its complexity. It was intense. We saw seven films in the debutant competition, and 15 films in the international competition, the front window of the festival. 14 out of them had cinematic qualities, defaults and evoked vivid discussions.’

‘The Kashmir Files’ is based on the killings and exodus of Kashmiri Pandits in 1990s. It starred Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Darshaan Kumar and Pallavi Joshi among others.
