At a recently held special screening of Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Shikara, a woman who happened to be a Kashmiri Pandit couldn’t contain her emotions!
Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s recently released film, Shikara has been around controversies ever since the film’s trailer got released. From being released at such a time where the nation is facing a lot to the cast of the film & the sensitivity attached to the topic, the movie and the makers have been asked many questions around the same.
At a special screening of Shikara : The Untold Story of Kashmiri Pandits in the capital, another controversy took place when a woman from the audience who happened to be a Kashmiri Pandit herself couln’t relate with the movie’s content and bashed Vidhu Vinod Chopra left, right and centre! She termed Vidhu’s film as “commercializing the plight of Kashmiri Pandits” where Vidhu was on the stage hearing it all as it happened. She said,
“Ye aapka commercialism aapko mubarak ho (Congratulations on your commercialism). As a Kashmiri Pandit, I disown your film, I disown it. You could have cast Kashmiri Pandit actors, but you chose to take Muslim actors. Why did play this politics?” ”
