Filmmaker Aditya Dhar who is now for the film Uri- The Surgical Strike took to his Twitter handle to share his thoughts on the film and the impact it had on him. “You might have seen numerous videos of Kashmiri Pandits breaking down in the theatres after watching #TheKashmirFiles. The emotion is real. It shows how long we kept our pain and tragedy repressed as a community. We didn’t have any shoulder to cry on and no ear to hear our pleas,” he wrote.


“This film is a brave attempt to show our TRUTH! We were forced to keep this tragedy a secret. We tried moving on hoping that time will heal our wounds. But we were seriously wrong. The wounds still remain,’ he added.

“Almost all of us till date are still suffering mentally, emotionally and even physically. It was not just the terrorism that killed so many, it was also what followed the migration. Hats off to our elders for bringing us up with so much dignity. Against all odds and atrocities, they made sure we get the best of education, and make our country proud,” he further wrote.

“Being a filmmaker myself I couldn’t have made a better film than this on my own tragedy. Hats off to  @vivekagnihotri & @AnupamPKher Ji. Please watch the tragic TRUE story of one of the most patriotic and loyal communities of India,” he concluded.

Retweeting Aditya’s post, Yami wrote, “Being married to a Kashmiri Pandit, I know first hand of the atrocities that this peace-loving community has gone through. But majority of the nation is still unaware. It took us 32 years and a film to get to know the truth. Please watch and support #TheKashmirFiles.”
