Despite all the criticism and controversies, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’ has earned more than 240 crores at the box office, some people have found this film to be propaganda of BJP. Although even an elite section of Bollywood has refrained from reacting to this film, now the film has been ridiculed by Bollywood actress and famous actor Akshay Kumar’s wife Twinkle Khanna.
Known for her quirky social media posts, Twinkle Khanna has written in The Times of India column that how other filmmakers are now trying to register many names like ‘South Bombay Files’, ‘Andheri Files’ so that they too taste success like ‘The Kashmir Files’.
Twinkle Khanna has written, “During a meeting at a producer’s office, I was informed that there has been a flood of new movie titles to pay tribute to ‘The Kashmir Files’. New titles are being registered as a tribute to the film. Since big cities have already been claimed, now poor people are registering names like Andheri Files, Khar-Danda Files and even South Bombay Files. I am just wondering if my colleagues can still call themselves filmmakers, or with all this filing they have become clerks like true nationalist Manoj Kumar.”
Twinkle Khanna further sarcastically wrote that she too is now thinking of making a film called ‘Nail File’. Twinkle has written that she shared the idea of this film with mom Dimple Kapadia. When Dimple Kapadia asked if this was not a disastrous manicure, Twinkle told her “Maybe, but at least it’s better than putting the final nail into the communal coffin.”
Let us tell you that ‘The Kashmir Files’ is a film based on the exodus by Kashmiri Pandits in 1990. The film stars Mithun Chakraborty, Anupam Kher, Darshan Kumar, Pallavi Joshi and Chinmay Mandlekar in lead roles. The film is doing great at the box office.
