Recently,
in
an
interview
with
a
publication,
Anurag
Kashyap
spoke
about
the
worldwide
success
of
SS
Rajamouli’s
magnum
opus
RRR.
While
talking
about
India’s
Oscars
entry,
he
said,
“India
might
have
a
nomination
in
the
final
five
if
RRR
is
the
film
they
pick.
I
don’t
know
what
film
anybody
is
going
to
pick.
I
hope
not

The
Kashmir
Files
.”

Well,
it
looks
like
Anurag’s
comment
hasn’t
gone
down
well
with

The
Kashmir
Files

director
Vivek
Agnihotri.

In
a
chat
with
Hindustan
Times,
the
filmmaker
said
that
he
didn’t
find
Anurag’s
comments
hurtful
as
he
has
faced
worse
criticism.

“These
people
have
been
running
a
campaign
against
me
for
many
years.
In
this
case,
it
was
a
wrong
precedent.
This
is
ethically
wrong.
You
can
share
your
preference,
but
why
are
you
saying
which
film
shouldn’t
go
(to
the
Oscars)?” Agnihotri
told
the
tabloid.

He
said
that
he
has
never
looked
up
to
the
Oscars
in
his
entire
life
as
he
feels
that
isn’t
the
criteria
to
judge
the
truth
of
a
film.
However,
Vivek
said
that
he
felt
that
it
was
important
for
me
to
defend
his
film
from
people
who
attack
it.
He
further
added
that
he
has
never
uttered
a
word
against
any
film
or
filmmaker
and
has
only
good
things
to
say
about
people.

On
being
asked
why
he
was
upset
with
Anurag’s
comment,

The
Tashkent
Files

director
elaborated,
“If
somebody
is
saying
it
(The
Kashmir
Files
)
shouldn’t
go
to
the
Oscars,
the
first
question
is:
Why
is
he
so
scared
of
the
film?
Second:
Why
doesn’t
he
want
the
stories
of
Hindu
genocide
to
be
told
to
the
world?
Thirdly,
is
he
a
genocide-denier?”

Vivek
said
that
he
isn’t
friends
with
Anurag
but
the
latter
always
says
something
about
him
and
added,
“They
need
eyeballs
(for
their
films).”


The
Kashmir
Files

which
released
in
March
this
year,
is
one
of
the
highest
grossing
Hindi
films
of
2022.
The
film
stars
Anupam
Kher,
Mithun
Chakraborty,
Darshan
Kumaar
and
Pallavi
Joshi.
