Kapil Sharma, a comedian and broadcaster, was recently criticised on social media for reportedly not asking the actors of Vivek Agnihotri’s film The Kashmir Files to appear on his show. The entire saga began when Vivek Agnihotri posted on Twitter that his team was not asked to appear on The Kapil Sharma Show since no major stars were engaged. Kapil, on the other hand, tweeted about the situation, claiming that it is untrue. In response to a fan’s tweet, he said, “Never believe in one-sided story in today’s social media world.” ‘Boycott Kapil Sharma’ also trended on Twitter.
Anupam Kher supported Kapil Sharma and discussed the situation in an interview with Times Now. He stated he was asked to the Kapil Sharma’s show but declined because the film’s subject matter is serious. Following this, the comedian expressed gratitude to the senior actor for clearing up erroneous claims levelled against him. On social media, he shared a short clip of Kher’s interview with the caption, “Thank you paji @AnupamPKher for clarifying all the false allegations against me.” He added, “Thanks to those who showered me with so much love without knowing the truth.”
The film The Kashmir Files has received a lot of positive feedback from the audience. After her husband Aditya Dhar revealed his thoughts on the film, Yami Gautam posted a poignant post after seeing it. She penned, “Resharing Aditya Dhar’s tweet, wife and actress Yami Gautam also echoed similar sentiments. She tweeted, “Being married to a Kashmiri Pandit, I know first hand of the atrocities that this peace-loving community has gone through. But the majority of the nation is still unaware. It took us 32 years and a film to get to know the truth. Please watch and support #TheKashmirFiles.”
