After the success of conspiracy thriller, The Tashkent Files (2019), well-known filmmaker Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri has now started working on his next directorial offering, The Kashmir Files.

As the title aptly suggests, The Kashmir Files is based on biggest genocide in India’s history – ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Pandits. Filmmaker Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri and his producer wife Pallavi Joshi will unveil the underlying truth of the genocide that shook India a couple of decades back.

Along with his wife, Vivek will be interviewing first hand record of displaced Kashmiri Pandits who are now settled far away from their roots, in countries like the United States, The United Kingdom, Canada and Germany.

Talking about the first schedule of The Kashmir Files, Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri said, “I believe that this is the first schedule of The Kashmir Files and the most difficult part of the filming process because it involves real people and real stories which Pallavi and I would capture on camera. Once I get this right, it is half battle won. The research for this project is an extensive one and I want to channelize my energy in digging as deep as possible to get the truth out. This incident should have gone down in the annals in History but where is it? How many people know about the magnitude of it?”

The filmmaker went on to add, “A film like The Kashmir Files has to bring out the truth or else it will be just another film that will come and go. I am making this film ‘by demand’- I have numerous well-wishers who have urged me to pick up this subject. I have had people calling me on phone and breaking down- telling me about how they have been a witness to their father being butchered into 50 pieces or mother being raped. I owe them the truth.”

More details on the project are awaited.
