Bollywood is running a campaign against The Kashmir Files, says Vivek Agnihotri 

Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, who helmed one of the most successful Indian films post pandemic 'The Kashmir Files', recently alleged that Bollywood is running a campaign against his film in order to prevent it from becoming India's official pick for Oscars. According to a recent report in India Today, he stated that Bollywood previously boycotted his films 'Buddha In A Traffic Jam' and 'The Tashkent Files' and not they are trying to do the same with 'The Kashmir Files'.

"First of all, they don't have any right to complain. If we talk about me, they have fully boycotted my Buddha In a Traffic Jam, The Tashkent Files was boycotted by the Bollywood critics and from the theatres. They are still running a campaign against The Kashmir Files Oscars submission. So they are experts in this. It is a very serious topic and I take it very seriously. According to me, Boycott is an anger of the audience due to the disconnect of the Indian middle-class people with the producers and the stars because of their arrogance," Vivek stated.

The filmmaker further added, "I have a question: why does no one speak or raise their voice against the corruption or moral decay in Bollywood or exploitation? While everyone surrenders in front of these things but speaks in the other world that we are standing against power, do you think that the common man is so foolish that they won't be able to see this hypocrisy? People have seen through it and now people are saying you give us good content then only will watch it. You can not fool us with the packages of Diwali release or Eid release or his film or her film. This is the verdict."
