In her social media post, Ektaa has penned, “Paying homage to the 59 innocent people who lost their lives in the Godhra train burning incident 22 years ago, today. Presenting ‘The Sabarmati Report’, in cinemas on 3rd May 2024.”

From the lead actors Vikrant Massey and Ridhi Dogra to the entire team of The Sabarmati Report, everyone has referred to the incident as the train burning incident.

Many social media users are very much upset with Ektaa Kapoor and her team for watering down a serious incident like Godhra massacre that killed 59 innocent Hindus that also included children and women who were reportedly burned down to death.

However, many other users congratulated her for making a movie on this controversial topic as there was a time when no one even dared to discuss it openly. A few users who were witness to this incident have also shared their opinion and lauded the efforts of Ektaa Kapoor for bringing this almost a taboo topic into the limelight.
