The Kashmir Files was one of the most controversial movies of 2022. In many places, it was banned even the censor board once rejected to screen this movie in theatres. But this movie turned out to be one of the best movies in terms of screenplay and story. Yesterday the Zee Cine Awards, the movie won in 4 major categories- Best Actor, Best Actor in a Negative Role, Best movie, and Best Screenplay. This movie also recently won the Best Film Award in the Dada Saheb Phalke award.
The director of the movie Vivek Agnihotri seemed to be as proud as he could be. In his post, he dedicated this movie to all those people who lost their lives and families who lost their loved ones. He says- “We dedicate this award to martyr Sanjay Sharma who sacrificed his life to religious terrorism yesterday in Kashmir.”

He even said that this movie was one of the most difficult to shoot. “Some 700 testimonials of Kashmiri Pandits who are no more were taken into consideration. But above all the best screenplay that we won is only what mattered to me. The foundation of the movie is all that I hoped for.”
