Yet another controversial film and yet again call for a boycott. Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Shikara become a topic of discussion when the movie in question explained about The Untold Story Of Kashmiri Pandits’. However, the internet is trending #BoycottShikara, as people allege that it’s not a documentary but a movie.
A film on Kashmiri Pandits
Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Shikara gained criticism after a few people criticized the movie of downplaying the role of terrorism and excusing the issue. The movie was released on Friday.
The film also had a special screening which was organized by Vidhu Vinod Chopra himself at a theatre in Connaught Place, Delhi. The show also had a Kashmiri Pandit woman, who later broke down and attacked the director of marketing their real-life situation.
Soon after the film came to an end, Chopra had stepped out to interact with the audience. The woman who was upset about the movie started shouting at him. The video of the woman lashing out at the director is going viral on twitter.
“The film does not represent the real suffering of the community including the genocide, mass rapes and mass murders committed by terrorists. Congratulations on your commercialism. Being a Kashmiri Pandit, I discard your film, I disown it,” said the woman.
What a joker this guy is. Truth has many sides … which means he chose not to show the actual truth of KPS. #BoycottVVCFilms #Boycott_Shikara

#Shikara is nothing but a massive attempt at whitewashing Islamic terrorism. Let’s face it, India and especially Kashmir hs been the biggest victims of Islamic trrsm and a false secular fictional narrative can’t wash the blood of the hands off “Azaadi” brigade.

#Boycott_Shikara @VVCFilms why was it required to make a joke of the tyranny faced by Kashmere pandits. @AnupamPKher handle your fraternity else we might just block bollywood as a sick pseudo anti Hindu hating group. Shame!

LOL…. BJP supporters are trending #Boycott_Shikara.. A movie produced and directed by someone born in Srinagar who had to leave their home in 1990. Written by another Kashmiri Pandit.
Problem with BJP supporters is, they don't care for Kashmiri Pandit, they care for an agenda.
