Being a wife of a Kashmiri Pandit herself, Yami Gautam explains why it was important for her to step up and support the film. But first, it was her husband who tweeted his review.


Aditya tweeted about the film and spoke about the reality that is depicted in the film. He wrote, “You might have seen countless videos of Kashmiri Pandits breaking down in the theatres after watching #TheKashmirFiles. The emotion is genuine. It shows how long we kept our pain and tragedy repressed as a community. We didn’t have any shoulder to cry on and no ear to hear our pleas.”

He added a string of tweets and called the film a “brave attempt” to show the reality of Kashmiri pandits. He also praised the work Anupam Kher and director Vivek Agnihotri have done on the movie.

“Being a filmmaker myself I couldn’t have made a better film than this on my own tragedy. Hats off to @vivekagnihotri & @AnupamPKher Ji. Please watch the tragic TRUE story of one of the most patriotic and loyal communities of India,” he wrote.

Yami reposted her husband’s tweet about The Kashmir Files on Twitter, along with a statement where she said her marriage to Aditya Dhar, a Kashmiri Pandit, has made her more conscious of their exodus from the valley.

The actor wrote, “Being married to a Kashmiri Pandit, I know first hand of the atrocities that this peace-loving community has gone through.”

“But the majority of the nation is still unaware. It took us 32 years and a film to get to know the truth,” Yami added. She ended her message by urging the public to watch and support The Kashmir Files.


The movie, ‘The Kashmir Files’, stars Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi, Darshan Kumaar, and others.
