‘Andhkar Raj’: Agnihotri slams Prakash Raj after criticism of ‘The Kashmir Files’
Mumbai (IANS) After Prakash Raj, whom he called ‘Andhkar Raj’, criticized his film ‘The Kashmir Files‘, filmmaker Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri has come out with a harsh response to actor-statements politicians and said his film has given “sleepless nights to urban Naxals”.
Prakash had recently mocked the filmmaker’s claims that the film could win an Oscar.
Agnihotri tweeted on Thursday morning: “A small, people’s film called #TheKashmirFiles has given #UrbanNaxals have so many sleepless nights that one of their Pidis is still troubled after a year, calling its viewers’ barking dogs. And, Mr. Andhkaar Raj, how do I get Bhaskar? She/he is entirely yours. Forever.”
He had also shared a video clip of Prakash from a live chat session held at the Mathrubhumi International Festival of Letters in Kerala, where he called ‘The Kashmir Files’ a “nonsense film”.
“Even if The Kashmir Files is a pointless film, we know who made it,” he said. Shameless. A global jury spits on them. They still act shamelessly. The director is still asking “Why I’m not winning an Oscar,” the other person. Not even a Bhaskar will he receive.”
In response, Vivek also made a video in which he declared: “I dare all these urban naxals and the great filmmaker who came from Israel that if they can prove any single shot or dialogue is not completely true, then I will quit filmmaking.”
“What are these individuals who continually protest India? These are the same people that prevented the truth about Moplahs and Kashmir from being revealed.”
