Vivek Agnihotri on recieving death threats for The Kashmir Files

Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri is all set for the release of his next project 'The Kashmir Files' which is based on the persecution and exodus of Kashmiri pandits in 1990. Since the subject of the film is rather controversial one, Vivek recieved lots of negative comments and even death threats on Twitter due to which he was compelled to deactivate his account.

During a recent chat with Hindustan Times, Vivek shared what actually happened and how it affected him. He told the news outlet, “For the last few days, it was getting a lot intense, with ugly threats. I understand I have the release of my film lined up, I can handle all that obviously, I recently spoke on the burqa issue. Since then also made a video on the same which I shared on Instagram.”

He further added, “It got ugly. It created mental stress for me, so I thought let me get off for few days, I just wanted to focus on the film. All this creates anxiety. If I am called all that, it’s okay, but if it comes down to my children and family. This was the best step.”

Vivek also stated that he'll return to Twitter once the dust settles. 'The Kashmir Files' is going to release on 11th of March.
