Ever since Vivek Agnihotri announced The Kashmir Files, it is in the news for all the right reasons. Even before its release, the film was mired in a controversy which continued even after its release. The film that stars Anupam Kher, Basha Sumbli and Mithun Chakraborty among others in the lead roles, is garnering rave reviews. The film is based on the real life exodus of Kashmiri Pandits that took place 32 years ago.

In the latest update, The Kashmir Files has garnered new controversy and its screening has been stopped at some of the multiplexes.

A user shared a video from a multiplex that sees viewers getting thrashed and assaulted in Wave Mall of Jammu. The caption read, “We are here in @wavecinemas Jammu, Just now the authorities here stopped the screening of THE KASHMIR FILES People are being thrashed and assaulted! A big propaganda is running to Muzzle the voice of truth @vivekagnihotri @AnupamPKher @KhajuriaManu @DrVikasPadha Do raise”

Commenting on the same, a user wrote, “@kothicame_darth This is what happens when you make a movie. Those who don’t like it will try to stop at any cost. So books and Twitter threads are always better.”
