Director Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files was released in theatres on March 11. While the film opened with limited screens in India, the positive response to the film has led to an increase in the screen count for the film. A day after the release of the film, Vivek Agnihotri along with his actor-wife Pallavi Joshi, and producer Abhishek Agarwal met Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Abhishek mentioned that PM Modi had appreciative words for the movie.
Abhishek took to his Twitter handle to share pictures from the meet. “It was a pleasure to meet our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi Ji. What makes it more special is his appreciation and noble words about #TheKashmirFiles. We’ve never been prouder to produce a film. Thank you Modi Ji @narendramodi @vivekagnihotri #ModiBlessedTKF,” he wrote in his tweet.
Retweeting Abhishek’s post, Vivek wrote, “I am so glad for you @AbhishekOfficl you have shown the courage to produce the most challenging truth of Bharat. #TheKashmirFiles screenings in USA proved the changing mood of the world in the leadership of @narendramodi.”
