Vivek Agnihotri slams Wikipedia for calling The Kashmir Files widely inaccurate

Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri's last film 'The Kashmir Files' garnered tremendous applause from fans and critics alike and turned out to be the most successful Hindi film after pandemic. Based on the 1990 exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, the film was praised for its depiction of brutal reality and managed to make 250 crores on box office. However, the Wikipedia article of the film described it as "widely considered inaccurate" and "associated with conspiracy theories".

Vivek, who wasn't pleased with such a description of his film, took to Twitter to mock Wikipedia with a sarcastic remark. The initial paragraph of the article read, "The Kashmir Files is a 2022 Indian Hindi-language drama film written and directed by Vivek Agnihotri. The film presents a fictional storyline centered around an exodus of Kashmiri Hindus in the disputed region of Kashmir. It depicts the early 1990s exodus to be a genocide, a notion that is widely considered inaccurate and associated with conspiracy theories."

Vivek shared a screenshot of the article and tweeted, "Dear @Wikipedia, You forgot to add ‘Islamophobia… propaganda… sanghi… bigot… etc’. You are failing your Secular credentials. Hurry, edit more."
