The war of words between Anurag Kashyap and Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri has further intensified after 'The Kashmir Files' director took to Twitter and reacted to Anurag Kashyap who recently in an interview said that he has not watched the film due to differences in ideology.
‘The Kashmir Files’ is based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir Valley the 1990s.
Taking to Twitter, ‘The Tashkent Files’ director shared a post where Anurag Kashyap said he had not watched the movie based on the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits.
Vivek wrote, “Look at the intellectual dishonesty of these people, they judge and review your film without EVEN SEEING it.”
He further continued, “The genius filmmaker says TheKashmirFiles which is about Hindu Genocide is not his ideology. Does this mean his ideology is that of Islamic Terrorists Brotherhood?”

The war of words began after Kashyap recently said 'The Kashmir Files' must not be chosen over S.S. Rajamouli's blockbuster, 'RRR', as India's official entry for the best foreign feature film award.
In the post, which was shared by Agnihotri, The Gangs Of Wasseypur director said, “Only a handful of our films have been nominated for Oscars because we have sent wrong films.”
Talking about ‘The Kashmir Files’, he said, “I had not watched The Kashmir Files because it’s not my ideology.”
Earlier, 'The Kashmir Files' director had accused Bollywood of running a campaign against his film being submitted for the Oscars.
He tweeted, “Important: The vicious, genocide-denier lobby of Bollywood has started their campaign against The Kashmir Files for Oscars, under the leadership of the maker of Dobaaraa."
