“The Kashmir Files” is a film about 700 Kashmiri Pandits who have never been heard or seen before, according to filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri.
He was at the national capital, together with the cast and producer of the film, to meet with the media about the film.
He claimed that researching and making the film took him and his crew four years and that the Global Kashmiri Pandit Diaspora (GKPD) assisted him in finding and locating Kashmiri Pandits who were direct victims of the violence in Kashmir.
Agnihotri said, “We have so much material that we can produce a series. All accounts are heart-wrenching ones. These are human stories… We are thinking about it… We will come out with a series.”
“The immense response that we got from the community was tremendous. These are all true accounts. Nobody knew about these. When we began with the thought, no one believed that this had happened with Kashmiri Hindus.”
