The Kashmir Files: Yami Gautam Responds To Vivek Agnihotri Film Being Termed As ‘Propaganda Film’
Yami Gautam in a recent interaction reflected on The Kashmir Files being called a propaganda film
Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files starring Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumar, Pallavi Joshi, and Mithun Chakraborty is one of the most talked-about films of 2022. Obviously, the film is ruling the box-office numbers. However, considering its sensitive plot, a few have termed it to be a ‘propaganda film’.
By far many have expressed their love for the film. Recently actress Yami Gautam, who is married to Aditya Dhar (a Kashmiri Pandit), had tweeted about the movie.
She had posted, “Being married to a Kashmiri Pandit, I know first hand of the atrocities that this peace-loving community has gone through. But 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.”
Now, in a recent interaction with Hindustan Times, Yami has reflected on The Kashmir Files being called a propaganda film.
Yami said, “This is beyond filmmaking. Also, beyond a point, you have to cancel a lot of things in your head. As long as you are a part of something which you believe in and you really like it, then you stick to it. When you know in your heart the intention [with which] something has been made [being tagged as propaganda] it’s even more painful.”
“If someone feels the other way, why don’t they speak to people who have spent years and years in those refugee camps? So many of them are still there and it has become a home for them. I think they would be able to answer these people [asking questions] better. I would love to go with the majority sentiment, with my truth, with what I have heard, and who I trust. And so many people cannot lie. Emotional pain [shown in The Kashmir Files] is beyond all these debates and agendas,” she added
On the work front, Yami Gautam is busy with the promotions of Dasvi which is all set to premiere on Jio Cinema and Netflix on 7th April 2022. The actress will be seen portraying the role of a cop in the film, and in the trailer, she has impressed one and all.
