The Kashmir Files: Anupam Kher’s Mother Gets Highly Emotional As She Talks About The Tragedy

 


Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri’s film The Kashmir Files is making box office history by smashing many records. The film is outperforming Akshay Kumar’s most recent movie, Bachchhan Paandey, in its second week. Everyone is complimenting the content-driven movie for its powerful performances and heart-wrenching plot.

Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi, and Prakash Belavdi appeared in The Kashmir Files, which won national awards.

Anupam Kher, who plays Pushkar Nath’s character in the film, revealed how he portrayed the part and how he tried to communicate the character’s sadness and agony on-screen during a recent press event. He further mentioned that being a Kashmiri Pandit, things were not easy for him. They were, in fact, a bit more difficult.

Pushkar Nath Pandit (Anupam Kher) and his family are the central characters in the story, and they are forced to escape their home. The first half of the film establishes the scene, while the second half concentrates on how and why today’s young should and should reconnect with their heritage.

Anupam Kher, who plays a crucial part in The Kashmir Files, turned to social media to express his gratitude for the film, which he received from his mother, Dulari Kher. The film is based on the genocide of Kashmiri Pandits in the Kashmir Valley in 1990 and its followed forceful migration from the valley, as is widely known.

For the uninitiated, he was one of the individuals forced to depart his land due to communal strife. The veteran wrote on Instagram upon posting the video of his mother,

“I wanted to be a little light-hearted while telling Mom about the box office success of #TheKashmirFiles!! But she was in no such mood. She is focused, fearless, hurt, disillusioned and furious! She speaks about the ordeal of the #KashmiriHindus genocide. About women, children suffering and about her younger brother #MotiLalKak. And she takes on the politicians! Dulari is deeply hurt!”

Dulari Kher is seen in the video chatting to Anupam about the movie. She starts by thanking Vivek Agnihotri, the director, for making a “correct” film. When Anupam, who can be heard off-camera, asks why she thinks the movie is so popular, she says,

“The film shows what happened.”

She then recounts her family’s three-decade journey in Kashmir, saying,

“My brother used to live in Rambagh. He came home one evening and was told to leave everything. He had just built his home that year. They wanted me and my other brother to go there too. There was a letter at the door saying ‘Today it’s your turn’. That poor man didn’t even take the deed to the house or the bank passbook. He died later heartbroken at being away from the home he had built with such love.”

She further added,

“He didn’t even take money. It wasn’t as if he had ancestral property in Mumbai or Delhi. So he stayed in a tent. I don’t wish this even upon my enemies.”

When Anupam asks whether she liked his work in the movie, she grins and answers sarcastically, “I didn’t like you. You were okay”.  She then  says to someone off-camera,

“Isko nazar utaar do beta (Ward evil eye off him please).”
