This year we saw many films surprise us with their stronghold on theatres and amazing box office collections. One of those films is The Tashkent Files directed by Vivek Agnihotri. The power-packed story of this film based on real incidents worked through word-of-mouth reviews and is still running in theatres, almost three months after its release. Post this, Agnihotri is planning to make a film showing the reality of Kashmiri pandits. Talking about this, the director said, “I am making a film on Kashmir. It’s called The Kashmiri Files. I have been working on this for quite some time. It’s an investigative thriller about the exodus of Kashmiri pandits. About four lakhs pandits were thrown out on one night and thousands of them were killed and women were raped. That’s the biggest human tragedy since the ethnic cleansing of Jews in World War II. In this, I will work with an ensemble cast as we did in The Tashkent Files and some good 8-10 good actors. My research is going on and hopefully will be finished by December. We’ll go on the floors next March or April.”
Looks like the filmmaker is planning to start a series of reality-based films!
