The Kashmir Files is the only film that is now being debated across the country. Perhaps for the first time in Indian cinema history, a film has gotten so much attention from the general public despite the fact that it has no huge stars or new marketing. It’s also worth noting that much of mainstream Bollywood stars have kept a strange quiet about the film’s surprising success, which is still winning the game and has only recently begun to get traction in the public sphere.
The Kashmir Files, directed and co-written by Vivek Agnihotri, is an Indian Hindi-language film starring Mithun Chakraborty, Anupam Kher, and Prakash Belawadi. As the title indicates, the film is based on the real event of the large-scale exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from India’s northernmost state in the 1990s. It also tells us about the brutal militant reality of Kashmir valley. The film highlights the hardship of thousands of Kashmiri Pandit victims who perished, as well as countless others who were forced to flee their homes and relocate to other regions of India.
While the film industry’s silence has been noticeable, here are some Bollywood celebrities who have complimented director Vivek Agnihotri, Anupam Kher, and the whole team of The Kashmir Files on the film’s box office and public perception triumph. So let’s start with our list:
1. Vidyut Jammwal
Vidyut began by retweeting Vivek Agnihotri’s rivalry with Anupama Chopra, and then he retweeted a few more posts celebrating the film’s success. Let me inform you that Vidyut is from the Jammu region of the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir, which indicates that he witnessed the tragedy firsthand and that it must have had an impact on him and the people around him.

Yami Gautam, who is married to Aditya Dhar, a famous film director and also a Kashmiri Pandit, also highlighted that many people know nothing about this tragedy, even after passing so many years.
