New Delhi: Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files has been on the hit list of controversies ever since it was released. The movie once again created a row of controversy as the Jury Head of the ongoing 53rd International Film Festival of India called it ‘vulgar propaganda.’

On Monday night, while addressing the IFFI event, Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid, this year’s jury head, said he was ‘disturbed’ to watch The Kashmir Files and termed it propaganda.

The director of the film Vivek Agnihotri did not directly reacted to this statement. Rather, he tweeted a cryptic post on Tuesday. He tweeted, “GM (good morning). Truth is the most dangerous thing. It can make people lie. #CreativeConsciousness.”

Nadav Lapid addressing The Kashmir Files said, “That felt like a propaganda, vulgar movie, inappropriate for an artistic competitive section of such a prestigious film festival. I feel totally comfortable to openly share these feelings here with you on this stage. In the spirit of this festival, can surely also accept a critical discussion, which is essential for art and life.”

According to ANI, the organisers of the event refused to say anything on the matter. meanwhile, the lead actor of the film Anupam Kher, speaking on the matter said, “It seems pre-planned as immediately after that the toolkit gang became active. It’s shameful for him to make a statement like this. Jews have suffered Holocaust and he comes from that community. For him to make such a statement, he has also pained those people who have been victims of this tragedy many years ago. May God give him wisdom so that he does not further his agenda on stage using the sufferings of thousands.”
