If forwarded to the Oscars, The Kashmir Files will be “embarrassing to India”: Filmmaker

The Kashmir Files director Anurag Kashyap indicated his desire for the movie to not be chosen as India’s official entry to the Oscars this year, according to filmmaker Dylan Mohan Gray, who also called the movie “hatemongering garbage of no creative quality.” In 2020, Dylan will broadcast the Netflix documentary series Bad Boy Billionaires India.

Dylan posted in response to Vivek Agnihotri’s tweet regarding Anurag’s remark: “Actually, if “chosen” by the “neutral” board, it’s (hateful, revisionist) garbage with no creative quality and will shame India even more. Anurag Kashyap is merely attempting to protect what little goodwill the nation still has.”The hashtags “you’re welcome” and “The Kashmir Files” were used by him. Though RRR is also vile and vicious, so not much of a step up, Dylan said in another tweet.

In his initial tweet, Vivek Agnihotri claimed that a campaign against his movie had been initiated by “Bollywood’s genocide-denier lobby.” On Wednesday afternoon, he tweeted, “Important: The vile, genocide-denier lobby of Bollywood has launched their campaign against The Kashmir Files for Oscars, under the guidance of the maker of Dobaaraa (Anurag),” sharing a screenshot of a news article that quoted Anurag.

Anurag proposed RRR as India’s official Oscar entry this year and recently told Galatta Plus in an interview that if RRR is the picture chosen, “India might actually have a nomination in the final five. I have no idea which movie will be chosen. Not The Kashmir Files, I hope.

The Kashmir Files, which was directed by Vivek Agnihotri, starred Anupam Kher, Pallavi Joshi, Mithun Chakraborty, and Darshan Kumar in the lead positions. The movie had a mixed reception upon release but went on to become one of the highest grossing Hindi movies of the year. The flight of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in the late 1980s is the subject of the movie. While the movie got praise for tackling a delicate subject, many people also criticised it for portraying all Muslims as aggressors.
