Vivek Agnihotri requests Haryana CM to stop showing ‘The Kashmir Files’ for free; says it is a ‘criminal offence’ – Times of India

The Kashmir Files‘ that released in theatres last Friday has turned out to be a huge money-spinner at the box office. The film that is based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits collected over Rs 140 crore in 9 days and the collections are expected to grow on Sunday as well as Monday. Amidst this impressive run at the ticket windows, some political figures in Haryana have arranged a free open screening of the film. Director Vivek Agnihotri has taken to Twitter to request politicians to ‘respect creative business’.

Sharing a poster, Vive requested the Chief Minister of Haryana Manohar Lal Khattar to stop the screening of The Kashmir Files in Rewari. The free screening is scheduled to be held on Sunday evening, reportedly organised by the district chief of a group called Panchnand.

Vivek stated that screening the film in the open and for free is a criminal offence. “Showing #TheKashmirFiles like this in open and free is a CRIMINAL OFFENCE. Dear @mlkhattar ji, I’d request you to stop this. Political leaders must respect creative business and true Nationalism and Social service mean buying tickets in a legal and peaceful manner,” [sic] read his tweet.

The Kashmir Files stars Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi, and Darshan Kumaar, among others. It has been declared tax-free in several states including Uttar Pradesh, Tripura, Goa, Haryana, Gujarat, and Uttarakhand.
