Anurag Kashyap is currently promoting his forthcoming film Do Baara starring Taapsee Pannu. The film is a futuristic horror film and is expected to hit the big screens this week. Before that, the filmmaker spoke with candour during one of the promotional interviewers where he spoke about the current condition of Indian cinema. In the same interview, he also mentioned that a film like RRR should be going to the Oscars and hopefully not a film like The Kashmir Files, directed by Vivek Agnihotri.
Anurag Kashyap reveals RRR should be picked for Oscars and not The Kashmir Files; filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri reacts
This comment did not go down well with The Kashmir Files filmmaker and Vivek Agnihotri, who took to social media to respond to the comment made by Kashyap. Anurag Kashyap spoke about RRR to Galatta Plus wherein he also discussed about how the Ram Charan, Junior NTR movie is perceived by the West. “The West sees RRR differently than how we see it, and they’ve loved RRR. If RRR becomes the India selection, 99% it might get nominated for the Academy Award. That is the impact that RRR has had in the world of Hollywood. India might actually have a nomination in the final five, if RRR is the film that we pick. I don’t know what film anybody is going to pick. I hope not Kashmir Files,” he said.
After his film was mentioned by Anurag, a rather miffed Vivek Agnihotri posted a photo of the article mentioning Anurag comparing RRR and The Kashmir Files on Twitter, along with a caption saying, “IMPORTANT: The vicious, GENOCIDE-DENIER lobby of Bollywood has started their campaign against #TheKashmirFiles for #Oscars, under the leadership of the maker of #Dobaaraa".

Speaking of The Kashmir Files, the film is a fictional story highlighting the issues of Kashmir along with the infamous 1990s exodus of Kashmiri Hindus.
