Priyamani on those who call Article 370 'propaganda'

Priyamani said, “Some people are going to say, ‘Oh, this is raising awareness. People need to know these stories.’ And then, there’s always going to be a section that will say, ‘This is absolutely propaganda.’ When we took on this film or when we decided that we wanted to be a part of this film, I think the main reason was that we wanted to tell people, ‘Listen there’s something like this which has gone down in history and not many people know about it’. I’m sure people knew about it but they didn’t know what people went through, what steps were taken to see to it that this mission was a success."

Priyamani also revealed that earlier, she didn’t know much about the mission. “I was one of the ignorant ones. It was very insensitive of me. I was not privy to such things earlier. I had thought to myself, ‘Okay, great, the article is abrogated’ but I didn’t know the gravity of it. Today, I do,” she had added.
