Post Tashkent Files, Vivek Agnihotris next to be based on Kashmiri Pandits
Vivek Agnihotris latest directorial venture The Tashkent Files has been doing moderately well at the box office. While the film has continued to draw in the audience, the director isnt sitting calm. In fact, we hear that Agnihotri is all set to commence his next venture that will be based on Kashmiri Pandits. Talking about the same Vivek stated that post the success of The Tashkent Files, he felt confident to take on a sensitive issue, and the story of Kashmiri Pandit refugees has always been something he wanted to explore. Further talking about the venture that is tentatively titled The Kashmir Files , Vivek goes on to mention how brutal the entire scenario was with kids being shot and people being made to leave their homes in the dead of night. Stating that he wants to make an honest film on this subject after investigations, Agnihotri terms this as one of the biggest human tragedies. As for researching the film, Vivek plans on visiting all the places where Kashmiri Pandit refugees have since settled and record their first-hand accounts. If that wasnt enough, Vivek will also be working closely with Kashimri activists and politicians about the same. Coming to the actual shoot of the film, Vivek Agnihotri explains that while earlier he thought of developing a book on this topic, he now plans on making it into a film that will also break the stereotype of the army being portrayed in a poor light. Though currently still researching the subject, Agnihoti is looking to commence shooting within the next six months with an ensemble cast that is yet to be locked.
