Talking to Times Now, Mithun Chakraborty told, “It feels great that Kashmir files has been shortlisted. It’s an answer to all the critiques. The jury who called the movie vulgar and propaganda has gotten the answer today. The people have liked the movie and that’s the response.”

Expressing his disappointment, he further added, “I will not give any controversial statements. It hurts when the movie isn’t allowed in certain theatres but gets shortlisted for Oscar. Indian films have come a long way and I wish other shortlisted movies all the best.”

While in conversation with ANI, Anupam Kher told the news agency, "The Kashmir Files being shortlisted at the Oscars is an achievement in itself; it's too early to celebrate. This tragedy was kept hidden for 32 years and after 32 years when this film was released, the world welcomed it but also there were a lot of people who commented a lot about it. Not only the film is shortlisted, but I am also shortlisted for the Best Actor award. It's a humbling and amazing feeling. Four more films are shortlisted from India. I wish them all the best and congratulations."

Talking about Nadav Lapid's statement at the festival's closing ceremony, he also added, "This is the time to be happy, and not to remember those people who just wanted 15 minute of fame, those who want fame for a short time target big things. What to talk about them at this time they will find their answer. The Kashmir Files is trending right now, the film is different because people did not show collective happiness on the success of this movie. They called it agenda and propaganda, and that's why those who are seeing the stir on social media, this is itself the answer to those people, we do not need to answer. Vivek Agnihotri doesn't need to answer."

The Kashmir Files was directed by Vivek Agnihotri and did a theatrical release along with achieving great success at box office. However, it has also been a matter of debate ever since its release last year. The film revolves around the alleged exodus of Kashmiri pandits in the Valley. It stars Mithun Chakraborty, Anupam Kher, Pallavi Joshi and Darshan Kumaar. At the 53rd International Film Festival of India in Goa, jury Nadav Lapid called the film ‘vulgar’ and a ‘propaganda’ film, which sparked a controversy.
