After delivering an impactful speech at the prestigious 'Capitol Hill' recently, writer-director Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri and Pallavi Joshi participated in the special Peace March held in Atlanta, USA recently.
Both Vivek and Pallavi are currently stationed in the USA for over a month-long schedule for the special screenings of their highly-anticipated movie 'The Kashmir Files' across different cities. It was a big symbolic gesture for Vivek and Pallavi to be a part of the The Peace March that started from Mahatma Gandhi statue to Martin Luther's memorial.
Sharing his thoughts on the same, Vivek says, "'The Kashmir Files' is based on the genocide of Kashmiri pandits in 1990. Nobody has made a film based on this subject before this but I just wanted to tell you why we are in USA even before the film has released in India. The theme of the film is right to justice and we believe that in democracy, the most fundamental pillar is justice and the Kashmiri pandits haven't got justice and we thought this film can become the soft power and it can enlighten people outside India to understand how hundreds and thousands of people were forced to not just leave their homes but they were killed. It happened because there are some evil people who do not understand the value of humanity. And that's why with this film, we tried to show to the world the importance of humanity and right to justice."
Touted to be one of the most important, relevant and unreported story of Indian history, Vivek's next 'The Kashmir Files' has been invited by several prestigious institutes and organizations in the USA. The critically-acclaimed filmmaker along with his actor-wife Pallavi Joshi are elated about the humongous and heartfelt response coming their way during the movie screenings.
After garnering praises for his last critically-acclaimed film 'The Tashkent Files' that went on to win the prestigious National Award beginning this year, Zee Studios and writer-director Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri have collaborated again to present yet another hard-hitting film, 'The Kashmir Files' scheduled to release in theatres on 26th January, 2022.
Living up to its title, 'The Kashmir Files' is a true story, based on video interviews of the first generation victims of The Kashmir Genocide of Kashmiri Pandit Community. It's a heart-wrenching narrative of the pain, suffering, struggle and trauma of Kashmiri pandits and questions eye-opening facts about democracy, religion, politics and humanity.
Written and directed by Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, the exodus drama features a stellar cast of actors including Mithun Chakraborty, Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumaar, Pallavi Joshi and Chinmay Mandlekar.
Produced by Zee Studios and Tej Narayan Agarwal, Abhishek Agarwal, Pallavi Joshi and Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri, 'The Kashmir Files', is scheduled to release in theatres on 26th January, 2022.
