The box office success of The Kashmir Files continues. Though most Bollywood artists have maintained silence, Sandeepa Dhar has expressed her feelings.
After seeing the film, Kashmiri Pandit and actress Sandeepa Dhar have written an emotional note. She described how her family was forced to flee their home during the Kashmiri Pandit Genocide in 1990.
She wrote ‘
The day they announced that Kashmiri Pandits should leave their women behind and leave Kashmir, my family decided to flee their homeland, hidden in the back of a truck, with my young cousin sister hidden under the seat behind my father’s feet for safety, quietly in the middle of the night! Nn As I watched the same disturbing scene in Kashmir Files it shook my core as this is literally my own story! My grandmother died, waiting to return to her home, her land, her “Panun Kashmir” (my Kashmir).’
She further wrote ‘ This film has been like a punch in the gut for me. It’s been much worse for my parents. My family is experiencing PTSD from having to relive it. this is the most important story that took too long to be told. And remember, this is yet, only a film, there is still no justice for us. Thank you Vivek Agnihotri for showing the world the truth. And hats off to the entire cast brilliantly headed by Anupam ji.’
