Bollywood actor Anupam Kher’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’ faced many controversies before its release. However, despite all the hindrances, ‘The Kashmir Files’ has been released in theaters on March 11. But now reports are coming that a Jammu and Kashmir court on Thursday, just a day before the release of the film, has ordered the makers to modify the scenes based on the late IAF Squadron Leader ‘Ravi Khanna’ in the film.
In fact, Nirmala, the wife of Indian Air Force martyr ‘Ravi Khanna’, had filed a petition in the court against Vivek Agnihotri’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’. The wife of Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna has appealed to the court to remove the scenes depicting her husband in the film. She claimed that the facts shown in the film are contrary to what happened to her husband.
Significantly, Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna was one of the four IAF personnel who was allegedly martyred in Srinagar on January 25, 1990. They were attacked by Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik and his associates.
According to the petition, it is shown in the film that Khanna is going to the office and distributing toffees to the children on the way when the terrorists come on a motorcycle and shoot a bullet at Ravi Khanna from close range, to which he is sacrificed. According to the petition, this is not the reality. Khanna was going to the office with his friend and when the terrorists try to kill him coming close, he grabs the gun and raises their face.
Additional District Judge Deepak Sethi, in the order given to the makers, said, “In view of the facts stated by Ravi Khanna’s wife, the film has been barred from showing the scenes depicting the works related to martyr Squadron Leader Ravi Khanna”. ” The judge further says that this order can be challenged by Vivek Agnihotri or he can satisfy the complainant by modifying the film.
The movie ‘Kashmir Files’ is based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley and is directed by Vivek Agnihotri.
