The Kashmir Files: Netizens Are Lashing Out At ‘Shikara’

Amid the box office success of ‘The Kashmir Files’, netizens are taking a dig at Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Shikara.

The Kashmir Files’ success 

Taking Bollywood by surprise, The Kashmir Files earned a lot of appreciation from the audience for the genuine story. Without any television promotion, ‘TKF’ has been widely promoted already. The drive was run on social media, and that too by Vivek Agnihotri himself, as he took the film to various cities globally and then shared videos and bites around what happened there.


After the massive success of the movie that described the horrifying incident that happened to Kashmiri pandits in the 1990s, the netizens are lashing out at Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Shikara for deviating the story.

Previously, when Shikara was released in early 2020, a video of a Kashmiri Pandit woman lashing out at the director at a screening in Delhi went viral. Calling it a pathetic film and disowning it, she is seen saying the movie was too commercialized and not genuine.

Netizens took a dig on Shikara

Netizens are comparing both the movie box office collections. One Twitter user wrote, “Shikara lifetime Collection: 8.15 crore #TheKashmirFiles 3 days collection: 27 crores. The power of truth.”
