Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri has hit back at veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah for his comment that the popularity of films like The Kashmir Files is "disturbing". In a recent interview with Zoom, Agnihotri said that Shah might be "disturbed" by the success of The Kashmir Files because he feels he has been "exposed along with the truth" of the film.
Vivek Agnihotri REACTS to Naseeruddin Shah for his remark on The Kashmir Files’ popularity: “He likes to support terrorists”
"People generally don't like being naked in front of people through somebody else's art," Agnihotri said. He further claimed that Shah is "happy" doing films which "support genocide" and does so "because of his religion or because of his frustration".
"For whatever reasons, perhaps he likes to support terrorists," Agnihotri said. "I don't even care what Naseer says because I have zero tolerance for terrorism, maybe he loves them."
Shah, who has worked with Agnihotri in the film The Tashkent Files, spoke about the success of Gadar 2, The Kerala Story and The Kashmir Files with Free Press Journal.
He said, "Films like (The) Kerala Story and Gadar 2, I haven't seen them but I know what they are about. It's disturbing that films like Kashmir Files are so massively popular whereas movies made by Sudhir Mishra, Anubhav Sinha, and Hansal Mehta, who are trying to portray the truth of their times don't get seen."
