The viral video is from the chat show ‘Tera Jawab Nahi’ on Reddit. It can be seen that RJ Raunak is saying to Vivek, “But appreciate Kia na Bollywood ke kaffi saare log ne aapki film ko appreciate Kiya hai,” (but there were a lot of appreciations coming from people in Bollywood) the director cut him along with him, “Jaise? Jaise?… Naam batao”( like who?..tell their name.)

Rj Raunac then continued by saying, “Akshay Kumar ne bola” ( Akshay Kumar did say ). To this Vivek Agnihotri took a sly dig at the actor and said, “Wo tho majburi mai kya bolega admi jab sau log samne khade hoke sawal puchenge ki Kashmir Files nahi chali, apki film nahi chali aur wo chal gai tho kya bolega, wo tho mai eak function mai tha Bhopal mai issliye bolna pad gaya.” (He had to say it, or what would he have said if 100s of people were coming up to him and asking if his film did not work and Kashmir Files did, what could be said about it. Well, I was in Bhopal for a function so he had to say that). Later when Raunac asked if anyone talked behind his back, the director said that nobody talked behind his back.

‘The Kashmir Files’ was the most successful Bollywood film of 2022, although the film had to face controversies as much as it earned. In The Kashmir Files, some scenes of Delhi’s famous university JNU were filmed, for which Vivek Agnihotri faced protests. People alleged that JNU was deliberately dragged into this film. Apart from this, a press conference was to be held in the Foreign Correspondents Club, but it was canceled at the last moment. Film director Vivek was very angry on this matter.
