Kept limping. It became worse. Now I also have stress fracture. Whenever I have to chose between body and work, I end up compromising on my body. Must change this attitude.”  In the next follow-up post, the director posted a series of his pictures from the sets of The Kashmir Files. In the click, he is seen standing and posing with a walking stick for support. The post read, “This was the day - 24th Dec 2020. When I slipped and tore my Cartilage. Doctors asked me to rest it out for 6-8 weeks. But like they say, Show Must Go On. Show went on, uninterrupted, for next 18 months but my knee worsened. Today, whom do I blame for ‘self-inflicted-fracture’?” ALSO READ: After The Kashmir Files, Vivek Agnihotri Announces His Next Film The Delhi Files, Filmmaker To Begin The Work Soon
