Canadian filmmaker on Vivek Agnihotri’s Kashmir Files: A debate is going on among the filmmakers of the Industry regarding the nominations of Kashmir Files nomination for an Oscar. A section of people is making fun of Vivek Agnihotri’s movie after his tweet on Anurag Kashyap’s movie Dobaaraa.
Filmmaker Dylan Mohan Gray, who worked on the 2020 Netflix docu-series ‘Bad Boy Billionaires India’ slammed the Vivek Agnihotri directorial and described it as “hatemongering garbage of no artistic merit.”
Gray tweeted in response to Vivek Agnihotri’s tweet regarding Anurag’s remark, “Yeah, actually it’s (hatemongering, revisionist) garbage of no artistic merit and will be a further embarrassment to India if ‘selected’ by the ‘neutral’ board… Anurag Kashyap is just trying to preserve what’s left of the country’s good name.” The hashtags “you’re welcome” and “The Kashmir Files” were used by him. He used the hashtags ‘you’re welcome’ and ‘The Kashmir Files’. Dylan added in a separate tweet, “Though RRR is also vile and sadistic, so not much of a step up.”
Reacting to Anurag Kashyap’s words, Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri said, “Bollywood’s genocide and denial lobby has started a campaign against his film. Bollywood’s worst, genocide-denying lobby has launched a campaign led by Dobaaraa (Anurag) against Kashmir Files for Oscars,” he tweeted. Canadian director Daylan responded to this and scolded Vivek Agnihotri saying that if Kashmir Files movie is sent from India to Oscar, it will be an embarrassment for India.
Anurag batted for RRR as India’s official Oscars entry this year and told Galatta Plus in an interview recently, “India might actually have a nomination in the final five if RRR is the film they pick. I don’t know what film anybody is going to pick. I hope not The Kashmir Files.”
