Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made his appreciation for the newly released film, The Kashmir Files, quite clear over the past few days. In a new video, PM Modi said that an "entire ecosystem" was trying to discredit the film which tells the "truth".
The Kashmir Files, directed by Vivek Agnihotri, released on March 11. The film is based on the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus from the Valley in the 1990s. It has ignited spirited debate from all sides.
Speaking on the film, PM Modi said, "People have been discussing it for the past few days. The people who usually spend their lives advocating for freedom of expression have suddenly got very agitated. They are not discussing the film as a piece of art. Instead, this whole ecosystem is trying very hard to discredit the film."
