All the films from the country and the world were screened at the 53rd International Indian Film Festival held in Goa. This year’s Bollywood blockbuster The Kashmir Files was also included in these films, but the IFFI 2022 jury rated director Vivek Agnihotri’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’ as a propaganda-based and obscene film. The video of this statement by Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid as a jury is going viral on social media. In such a situation, now the Indian filmmaker Ashoke Pandit has brought out Lapid.
Filmmaker Ashok Pandit is upset after the jury criticized Israeli filmmaker Navid Lapid’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’ during IFFI. Regarding this matter, Ashok Pandit has tweeted on his official Twitter account that: ‘Israeli filmmaker Navid Lapid has mocked India’s fight against terrorism by calling ‘The Kashmir Files’ film obscene. He has insulted 7 lakh Kashmiri Pandits right under the nose of the BJP government. This is a huge blow to the credibility of the 2022 India International Film Festival, shame on you.’

“We were all disturbed and shocked by the movie. #Kashmir Archives, which we found to be a vulgar propaganda film, inappropriate for the competitive arts section of such a prestigious film festival.” IFFI Jury President Nadav Lapid.
